Dental Accidents or Trauma
If you experience a dental injury, accident or trauma to your mouth contact our office right away, as it can mean the difference between saving and losing your tooth. If your tooth gets dislodged or knocked out, do your best to save it and bring it in to us as soon as possible. If your tooth gets chipped or broken, also try to save any pieces and contact us right away.
If you experience an injury to your gum tissue, or other soft tissue such as your cheeks or lips, first try to contain the bleeding with a cold compress or warm saltwater rinses, if possible.
If you have an infection, you may begin to experience sensitivity to hot, cold or sweet foods and beverages. You may also have a constant dull toothache that doesn’t subside. It’s important to understand that if you have an infection, your pain won’t go away on its own, in fact, it will get worse and put your tooth at risk for further damage. This is the time to call your Prince Albert dentist right away!
The quicker we can diagnose your pain the quicker we’ll be able to provide you with relief. Being proactive and calling right away can also mean the difference between saving your tooth and having an extraction.
