Emergency dental care refers to a condition affecting the teeth where bleeding and laceration to the gums and dislodge or fracture teeth caused by trauma occurred. This condition often requires immediate medical attention. Any dental problems requiring immediate treatment to save a tooth, stop tissue bleeding, or alleviate severe pain is considered to be a dental emergency. This is often observed as a result of an accident and biting on hard piece of food. When involving in sports activities, it is important to protect your mouth with mouth guards to avoid oral injury. Although our teeth is the hardest substance in our body, mouth injuries can still cause the teeth to crack, break, or knocked out/dislodge. Even biting a hard food can lead to dental emergencies. Whatever the cause, dental emergencies should always be treated to prevent serious complications.
Accidents are unpredictable. We never know when accidents will happen but one thing is for sure, anytime of the day we are all vulnerable to accidents. Some oral injuries can wait a little longer but some may need immediate treatment such as severe infection or abscess in the mouth which can be life-threatening thus no time should be wasted. If your tooth is fractured, the best thing you can do as first aid is; (1) rinse your mouth with warm water; (2) apply cold compress to reduce the swelling, (3) take aspirin if pain is unbearable; and (4) immediately go to your dentist. If your mouth is wounded or bleeding, it should be cleaned right away with warm water.
