Dental Emergencies: What They Are and What You Should Do if One OccursNot everyone can remain calm and composed in front of an emergency situation. In a nutshell, it is a very rare commodity. However, when unforeseen circumstances pop up, it is important to assess the situation and determine whether you need immediate assistance or not. Also, what kind of help are you going to be able to find in an emergency, other than at a hospital?

That is where First Impressions Orthodontics for Children & Adults comes into the picture. We have emergency services that allow us to help you address any dental emergency you may be experiencing. We believe that you shouldn't have to wait for ™normal business hours™ to get the help you need in an emergency situation.

What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency can be classified in some different ways; however, the broad overview is fairly straightforward. It is a situation in which your oral health is suddenly compromised and needs immediate attention to prevent further damage or the permanent loss of teeth. A good example of a dental emergency is an accident in which an adult tooth or two gets knocked out of your mouth, and the bleeding refuses to stop. A moderate to severe impact on the mouth which, fractures, dislocates or breaks your jaw is also a good example of a dental emergency. Other examples of a dental emergency include:

•  Severe pain in your mouth, teeth or jaw.
•  Oral Bleeding that will not stop.
•  Orofacial upheaval.
•  Severe toothache.
•  Cracked, lost or broken tooth.
•  Loss of a tooth filling or crown.
•  An abscess.
•  Broken braces and wires.
•  Oral tissue damage.
•  Foreign objects stuck in the teeth, tongue or gums.
