Did you know that people risk breaking their teeth or otherwise causing injury to their mouth while eating, exercising, playing, or participating in seemingly harmless activities? It’s important to know what to do when you are in need of an emergency dentist.
What is a dental emergency? Dental emergencies can occur when you have a tooth (or teeth) that is broken or cracked, becomes loose, or is knocked out of your mouth completely. From these injuries you can also sustain cuts on your lips, gums, or cheeks. Oral injuries are very painful and should be treated as soon as possible by Center City Emergency Dentists.
If you’ve knocked out a tooth, it’s important that you call us when you need an emergency dentist. As a rule of thumb, the best chance that you have of your tooth surviving the trauma is by seeing us within an hour of the incident. Also handle the tooth by the top of the tooth, the crown, and never by the roots. Touching the roots of your tooth can cause cell damage and may make it impossible to reattach the tooth. Don’t let the tooth dry out, place it in between your gum and cheek, and call us as soon as you can get to a phone.
