Knowing how to act in a dental emergency can be the difference between losing and saving your tooth. In this week’s blog, your emergency dentist Brisbane discusses some of the simple things you can do to manage a traumatic dental accident. One of the main causes of dental trauma is sporting accidents, so your emergency dentist Brisbane recommends that all children and adults wear a custom mouthguard when participating in sport. Of course, accidents do happen, so it pays to be prepared. First and foremost, assess the patient for head and neck injuries, especially if they have lost consciousness. Seek medical help if injury or concussion is suspected. If the injury is confined to the teeth, here are some tips for managing the situation from your emergency dentist Brisbane: 1.Time is of the essence: immediately contact your New Farm dentist. We will need to see you as soon as possible after the accident, especially if the patient is in pain. 2.Try to locate the missing tooth or tooth fragment, to ensure that it has not been inhaled or embedded in the tissues 3.If the tooth is knocked out, the best approach is to replant it into the socket and see your emergency dentist Brisbane immediately. If you don’t feel confident, the next best thing is to store the tooth in milk, keeping it below body temperature. Handle the tooth carefully, avoid contact with water, and do not touch the root surface. Remember, it’s better to be safe than sorry. If in doubt, call your emergency dentist Brisbane as soon as possible, because your dental health is our priority.
