Dental Clinic’s Most Common Dental Emergencies

Although we are optimistic that our patients will never experience a dental emergency, we think it is critical to have a plan of action in place in case the unthinkable happens. The staff at Family First Dental will work to accommodate emergency appointments on the same day to help relieve the pain and get you back to your everyday life. Today we want to talk about some common dental emergencies our dental clinic sees and what you should do in case you experience any of these.

The 3 Most Common Dental Emergencies

  • Broken Tooth

While your teeth are the hardest element in your body, it is common to break, crack, or even knock them out of your mouth completely. No matter how it happened, be sure to call our dental clinic immediately for an emergency appointment.

  • Swelling

Occasionally, some patients experience swelling in their gums. While it could be a particle of food irritating your gum, it can also be an indication of infection that needs to be treated as quickly as possible.

  • Toothache

Toothaches are quite common, but that does not mean they are not painful! If you are suffering from a toothache, try rinsing your mouth with warm salt water to help calm the pain.

If you ever experience any of the dental emergencies explained above, do not hesitate to contact our dental clinic. Our team is devoted to providing you with the most personalized, gentle care that you deserve.

One of the best things you can do to prevent dental emergencies is practice good preventive dental care habits. Make sure you are brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time, flossing each day, and visiting our dental clinic regularly for cleanings and exams.
