Understanding Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies require immediate attention for various reasons:
- Severe Toothache: Indicates possible deep decay or infection.
- Chipped/Broken Teeth: Needs prompt care to prevent further damage or infection.
- Knocked-Out Teeth: Immediate action can often save the tooth.
- Lost Fillings/Crowns: Leaving the tooth unprotected can lead to further issues.
- Abscesses/Infections: Can be extremely painful and potentially serious if not treated quickly.
Immediate Steps Before Seeing Dr. Shelton Chow
In the event of a dental emergency, taking the right steps before seeing Dr. Chow is crucial:
- Knocked-Out Tooth: Gently rinse without touching the root, try reinserting into the socket, or keep it moist in milk or saliva.
- Severe Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm water; apply a cold compress externally.
- Chipped/Broken Tooth: Rinse your mouth and apply a cold compress; save any broken pieces.
- Bleeding: Apply gentle pressure with gauze to control bleeding.
These measures are interim solutions until you can receive professional care.
