Types of Dental Trauma

  • Knocked-Out Teeth: Quick action is crucial. If possible, the tooth should be rinsed (without touching the root) and reinserted into the socket. If not feasible, keep the tooth moist in milk or saliva and seek immediate dental care.
  • Chipped or Fractured Teeth: Minor chips may only require cosmetic treatment, but more severe fractures can involve the tooth’s nerve and require more comprehensive care.
  • Dislodged (Luxated) Teeth: Teeth that have been partially knocked out of position need to be stabilized and repositioned as soon as possible.

Our Treatment Approach

Expert Care for Wisdom Tooth-Related Discomfort

Wisdom tooth pain is a common issue that can arise from impaction, infection, or misalignment. Robina Quays Dental Care offers treatment for those experiencing discomfort related to their wisdom teeth.

Causes and Symptoms of Wisdom Tooth Pain

  • Impaction: Wisdom teeth may become trapped (impacted) beneath the gum, leading to pain and infection.
  • Misalignment: Growing at an angle, wisdom teeth can press against other teeth, causing pain and misalignment of the dental arch.
  • Infection: Partial eruption of wisdom teeth can create a space for bacteria to enter, leading to infection, swelling, and severe pain.

Our Treatment Approach

  • Comprehensive Examination: We start with a detailed assessment, including X-rays, to determine the cause of the pain.
  • Pain Relief: Initial treatment focuses on alleviating pain and includes medication for inflammation and infection if necessary.
  • Extraction: If required, we perform wisdom tooth extraction. This procedure is recommended when the tooth is impacted, causing chronic pain, or contributing to dental complications.
  • Post-Operative Care: Guidance on managing post-extraction healing, including pain management, dietary recommendations, and oral hygiene practices.

Preventive Measures and Advice

  • Regular check-ups can help monitor the progress of wisdom teeth and address any issues before they become painful.

A dental emergency is any situation involving your teeth or gums that requires immediate medical attention. Common examples include severe toothache, knocked-out or broken teeth, abscesses, lost fillings or crowns, uncontrolled bleeding, and swelling or infection in the mouth.

Immediate treatment is crucial in a dental emergency. For example, a knocked-out tooth has the best chance of being saved if reinserted within an hour. For infections or severe pain, seeking treatment as soon as possible can prevent further complications.

For a severe toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water and gently use dental floss to remove any trapped food particles. Avoid applying aspirin directly to the tooth or gums. Over-the-counter pain relievers can provide temporary relief, but you should see a dentist as soon as possible.

If you have a broken or chipped tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek to reduce swelling. If possible, save any broken tooth pieces. Avoid chewing with the damaged tooth and visit a dentist immediately.

If a tooth is knocked out, hold it by the crown (not the root), and rinse it gently if dirty. Try to reinsert it into the socket and hold it in place. If that’s not possible, keep the tooth moist in milk, saline solution, or saliva. Seek immediate dental care.

If you lose a filling, place a piece of sugarless gum into the cavity or use over-the-counter dental cement. If a crown falls off, try to place it back on the tooth with dental cement, toothpaste, or denture adhesive. See a dentist as soon as possible to have it properly fixed.

While occasional gum bleeding can occur with vigorous brushing or flossing, persistent or excessive bleeding may indicate a serious condition like periodontal disease and should be treated promptly.

For a jaw injury, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If the injury is severe, or if you suspect a fracture, go to an emergency room immediately. Follow-up with a dentist as soon as possible for further assessment.

A dental abscess is a serious infection that requires professional treatment. While waiting to see a dentist, rinse your mouth with a mild saltwater solution several times a day to ease discomfort. Do not attempt to drain the abscess by yourself, as this can spread the infection.

Over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen can help manage dental pain temporarily. Avoid eating hard or chewy foods, and try to chew on the opposite side of your mouth. A cold compress applied to the cheek can reduce swelling and pain. However, these are only temporary measures, and seeing a dentist as soon as possible is essential.

Common signs of dental infections include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling in the face or cheek, tender or swollen lymph nodes under the jaw or in the neck, fever, and a foul taste or smell in the mouth. Dental infections require prompt treatment to prevent spread to other parts of the body.

Yes, swelling in the mouth or face can be a sign of a serious infection, such as an abscess or cellulitis, and is considered a dental emergency. It’s crucial to seek immediate dental or medical attention, as these infections can rapidly worsen and become life-threatening.

A dental issue is urgent if it involves severe pain, significant bleeding, trauma to the teeth or mouth, swelling, signs of infection, or loss of a dental restoration like a filling or crown. These conditions require prompt attention to alleviate pain, treat infection, or prevent further complications.

For a bitten tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If the bleeding is significant or doesn’t stop with pressure, seek emergency care. Stitching may be required for deep cuts.

While tooth sensitivity is often not an emergency, severe, sudden, or unexplained sensitivity, especially if accompanied by swelling or pain, may indicate an underlying problem like a fracture, abscess, or severe decay, and should be evaluated by a dentist promptly.

If a wire breaks on your braces, try to push the wire into a comfortable position using the eraser end of a pencil or cover the end with orthodontic wax. Avoid cutting the wire, as this can lead to accidental inhalation or swallowing. Contact your orthodontist as soon as possible for a repair

Preventing dental emergencies involves maintaining good oral hygiene, wearing protective mouthguards during sports, avoiding chewing hard objects like ice or hard candy, and never using teeth to cut or open things. Regular dental check-ups can also detect issues early, preventing them from becoming emergencies.

Treatments for emergency dental situations vary depending on the issue and may include pain management, antibiotics for infections, temporary restorations for lost fillings or crowns, root canal therapy for abscesses, and sutures for soft tissue injuries.

Yes, untreated dental emergencies, especially infections like abscesses, can lead to serious health complications. An infection can spread to other parts of the face, the skull, and even the bloodstream, leading to potentially life-threatening conditions like sepsis. Prompt treatment of dental emergencies is crucial to prevent such serious consequences.

Dental emergencies can be relatively common in children due to their active lifestyles and learning phase of maintaining oral hygiene. Common emergencies in children include knocked-out teeth from falls or sports, dental infections from untreated decay, and soft tissue injuries from biting or cuts.

When preparing for an emergency dental visit, bring any dislodged teeth or dental restorations with you, and have your dental and medical history information available, including any allergies and medications you’re taking. If you’re in pain, avoid taking medications that might thin your blood, such as aspirin, unless prescribed.

While a lost filling may not always be a severe emergency, it should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the tooth and potential pain or sensitivity. Temporary dental fillings can be purchased at a pharmacy to protect the tooth until you can see a dentist.

For temporary relief from wisdom teeth pain, rinse your mouth with warm salt water, use over-the-counter pain relievers, and apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek. Avoiding hard or chewy foods can also help. However, persistent pain from wisdom teeth often requires professional dental attention.

After emergency dental treatment, follow your dentist’s specific aftercare instructions, which may include taking prescribed medications, using a special mouth rinse, and eating a soft diet. Good oral hygiene, avoiding certain foods, and refraining from smoking can aid in healing.

Ignoring a dental emergency can lead to increased pain, spread of infection, loss of teeth, and more complex and costly dental treatments in the future. In severe cases, dental infections can spread, posing serious health risks.

Over-the-counter products that can be useful in dental emergencies include dental pain relievers like ibuprofen, temporary filling materials, dental wax (for braces issues), and antiseptic oral rinses. These products can provide temporary relief but are not substitutes for professional dental treatment.

Yes, emergency dentists are equipped to perform extractions if necessary. Extractions may be required in emergencies like severe decay, advanced gum disease, or trauma resulting in irreparable tooth damage.

A dental emergency is a situation that requires immediate attention to alleviate severe pain, reduce the risk of severe infection, or address trauma to the mouth. Standard dental issues, while important, can typically wait for a scheduled appointment and don’t pose an immediate threat to a person’s oral health or overall well-being.
