When to access emergency dentist

Every individual needs an emergency dental care at least once in a lifetime. It can be quite tough to explore an emergency dentist in your vicinity at short notice. Dental397 is a good choice to begin your search for a dentist in Exeter. Our experts assist patients in exploring an out-of-hours dentist, the best way to alleviate dental pain, and how to be prepared for dental emergencies in the future. Sometimes, dental patients do not know when to contact the dental care emergency service. When one faces any following problems should contact us as soon as possible.

  • Tooth pain which has continued for more than a half hour after having pain relief and flossing between teeth.
  • A swelling on your gum line just next to the root of your teeth, this may be a cyst. Untreated cysts may pose a high risk of tooth loss moreover; it can lead to fever, tooth sensitivity, a constant toothache, swelling of lymph nodes in your neck, inflammation in the face, and a pimple like bump on your gums next to the infected tooth.
  • Continuous pain due to a broken tooth or broken filling. Untreated for a long time can cause further tooth damage and ultimately tooth loss.
  • A broken cap (Crown) can result in serious decay to the root of the tooth, cysts and ultimately tooth loss.
  • If you have a very tender or serious fracture, wash your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the outside of the face to reduce inflammation. Use over the counter painkillers if required.
  • There is heavy bleeding as a result of trauma.
  • A tooth which has been knocked out due to an accident can be reinserted. But the condition is that you must have placed the tooth in a sealed container filled with milk. Do not try to clean the teeth because the milk cleans the tooth without damaging its tissue and increases the chances if re-implantation.
  • In case of lost tooth, you should visit the dentist to prevent the further infections in the gums; it can lead to abscesses and other complications. This is especially imperative if you propose to have a dental implant.
  • As you know an adult should never have loose teeth, if you have a loose tooth even without any pain, you should visit dental practice.
