LOS ANGELES, CA, August 28, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Los Angeles dentist office, Sunset Plaza Dental, offers tips for managing dental emergencies. Accidents are a part of life, but the actions you take after an accident can make a big difference, especially for your mouth. When it comes to dental accidents, timely treatment may mean the difference between a healthy smile and a lost tooth or more serious damage.
Some of the most common dental emergencies include:
- Mouth ache
Several things can lead to a mouth ache, including TMJ, bruxism and soft tissue damage. If conservative at-home care does not resolve the symptoms, emergency care may be needed to rule out more serious problems and identify the underlying issue.
- Painful gum
Healthy gums should be firm, pink and pain-free. Gums that hurt may be infected, abscessed or irritated by food stuck between the teeth or under the gum-line. If a salt-water rinse and careful brushing and flossing do not alleviate the pain, patients should seek dental care as soon as possible.
- Painful teeth
Teeth can become painful for many reasons, including loose fillings, cavities or abscesses. Prompt care can help prevent complications ranging from abscesses to lost teeth.
- Avulsed teeth
A tooth that is knocked out is an absolute emergency and must be treated as soon as possible. The tooth's root should not be touched, and the tooth should be placed in a glass of milk or a tooth preservation kit as soon as possible.
- Broken tooth
Broken teeth may need root canals to stabilize the tooth and prevent further damage. Crowns can be used to protect the tooth.
