What is a Dental Emergency
A Dental Emergency refers to a situation that arises in the form of bleeding gums or a tooth that may have cracked, broken or knocked out due to an accident and needs immediate attention.
Access & Aim for Dental Emergency
The quick onset of severe and unrelenting dental pain can cause oral trauma or anxiety in some patients, and it is, therefore, advisable to get in touch with your dentist or visit the nearest dental clinic to get timely care.
When a patient approaches a dental emergency service, they receive immediate attention without delays. It helps control the teeth damage before the condition deteriorates or worsens. Remember, an emergency dentist may also offer preventive measures depending on your dental problem and may consent to seek further appointments if required.

First Aid for Dental Emergencies
No matter the kind of emergency it may be, it is advised to remain calm and follow a few necessary first aid steps to help relieve the pain until you can connect or reach the dentist.
Clean the area thoroughly and floss between the teeth gaps to remove any food particles there may be. Mouthwash and rinse a couple of times with lukewarm salt water and then make an appointment with your dentist at the next available time.
Remain calm and support the knocked out tooth with the parts visible. Remember the roots are fragile, so try and avoid touching them. Visit the nearest emergency dentist near you to take immediate treatment.
Unless the bleeding doesn’t stop, or there is immense pain, no need to panic. Book an appointment at your convenience and let the dentist suggest the next steps.
Severe Dental Trauma
This refers to a situation where you may be in an accident that has left you with suspected broken jam or multiple avulsed teeth. Try to remain calm and visit the nearest dental emergency at your local hospital.
