Emergencies can happen out of nowhere, and when they do it is important to make sure you know where to do. At Braces Now 14 in Norcross, we are equipped to handle all kinds of emergencies that you or your family members may have. We make sure your family’s teeth receive the proper care and avoid further injury and damage.
Some of the most common ways to injure teeth are by playing sports. Even sports that do not involve direct contact can be dangerous and result in damage to teeth. Biting on hard objects or foods as well as falling can also cause damage to the teeth. Cracks can occur due to falls as well as breaks in the tooth. It can also be knocked out of the mouth, leaving an empty space between teeth.
If you injure your tooth and it is severe, you need immediate care. When you cannot call for a dentist during regular business hours, it may be time so seek care from Braces Now 14 for emergency dental care in Norcross.
If your tooth has been completely knocked out of the mouth, then try to handle the tooth as little as possible. If you can put the tooth back into the socket, do so carefully and keep it in place until you can get to the dentist. Rinse it off if it has fallen in dirt or somewhere with germs and bacteria. If you cannot get it back into the socket, then a container of your own saliva, or milk, can be used to hold onto the tooth. A cold and wet compress can be used to control bleeding from the socket.
If you are feeling severe pain but do not see any visible injuries, then you may still need a trip to the dentist. Some problems can be under the tooth, where they cannot be seen but they can be felt. Your dentist can look into your teeth with digital imagery and find the cause of your pain.
