Accidents happen and they’re never when you expect. A child’s permanent tooth gets knocked out, you bite down on something too hard and crack a molar. How do you handle something that you never expect? You can’t simply call 911 for help!
Sandia Dental Care provides same day emergency care for you and your family when the unexpected happens.
What is a Dental Emergency?
During the normal course of a day, your teeth are used without you noticing. You eat, talk and smile without worrying. However, when an accident happens that involves your teeth, a dental emergency can be the result.
Large cracks, chips and breaks in a tooth are not only painful but dangerous. They compromise the enamel that protects the nerve and pulp of your tooth from infection. If you’ve lost a large piece of your tooth and you don’t have it handled immediately, debris and bacteria can reach the tooth’s interior and cause a severe infection.
A tooth that’s been knocked out needs to be replaced in the socket. If that’s not possible, it should be gently washed free of any visible debris and put in a cup of milk or saliva. And then attention sought immediately to ensure that the tooth can be replaced.
