No one wants to find themselves having a dental emergency, but is every ache a cause for alarm? What actually counts as a dental emergency, and what can we try to ignore?
Knock out a tooth? You have a couple of options; keep the tooth between your cheek and gums to keep it moist, or submerge it in milk. Either way, this is an emergency and you need to get to a dentist ASAP.
Have an extruded, or partially dislodged, tooth? You need to seek medical attention right away. If a tooth is wobbly or loose, it could be a sign of periodontal disease. Get it checked out before symptoms get worse.
Cracking a tooth requires immediate medical attention. If you chip part of your tooth, it may be uncomfortable, but it does not warrant a dental emergency. However, cracking a tooth does. Your best bet for this is applying a cold compress for swelling and getting to a dental office fast!
