You may take great care of your teeth, but you are still vulnerable to dental trauma that results from an accident, injury, or physical altercation. As strong as your teeth are, they can be knocked by force from their sockets, either partially or entirely. At Blash Dentistry, you can count on immediate and expert care so that you will have the best chance of keeping the tooth in question and having it remain viable and healthy.
When a tooth is still physically attached to the socket, it is referred to as being dislodged. And if it is no longer attached at all, it is avulsed. Both qualify as a dental emergency Corona and are treated here with the sense of urgency that they require. If you are able to, call our office (or have someone else do so on your behalf) to give us a heads up that you are on your way. Doing so will also allow us to provide you with any helpful advice and guidance. Remember, every second counts. For dislodged teeth, attempt to gently push it back into its place, but do not force it. For avulsed teeth, it is crucial that it retain its moistness. Keep it in a container of milk or in warm salt water until you arrive. Take over-the-counter pain medication if necessary. Your dental emergency Corona will be assessed at our office and the appropriate action taken. This typically includes an examination and x-rays. You may only need to have the tooth stabilized with a splint or orthodontic wire. Root canal is a possibility for dislodged teeth, and a near certainty for avulsed ones.
The more quickly you act on your dental emergency Corona, the more likely it will be that your tooth can be saved. So keep our number programmed in your phone and use it immediately when you have dental trauma.
