Most people understand the importance of dental care, but some still have questions. Emergencies, whether medical or dental, have a nasty habit of happening when you're not expecting them. For dental issues, knocked-out or broken teeth require urgent attention, but others can be less obvious.
Remember to visit your dentist regularly even if your teeth appear in excellent condition, especially if you have a severe toothache. Your dentist can provide you with the prompt and immediate treatment you need.
For a knocked-out tooth, you should go to your dentist right away to get the necessary treatment. It can be extremely painful, and the gum area will most likely bleed continuously unless the dentist stops the bleeding. You can even have your dentist restore your tooth. However, if you have a partially dislodged or extruding tooth, it can cause even more pain than you would experience with a knocked-out tooth. Don't try to push it back or remove it because you will only make things worse. You can try to relieve the swelling and pain by applying an ice pack, then go to your dentist immediately.
These dental emergencies are just a few of what you may experience if you don't take care of your teeth. So if you want to avoid them, take great care of your teeth. Watch this video where you will discover the basics of dental care.
