Dental emergencies such as broken or cracked teeth, severely injured soft tissues of the mouth, etc. can come as a shock. Most often, patients tend to panic in such situations and just get worked up about what has to be done. We urge patients to remain calm and not panic when they have a dental emergency. Get in touch with a dentist at the earliest so that you can receive the necessary medical attention.
In such a condition, patients should rinse their mouths with cold water and try to control the bleeding with a clean piece of gauze. If you manage to find the broken portion of the tooth, bring it along while visiting the dentist for immediate treatment.
Injured soft tissues
External trauma to the mouth can result in bruises or cuts to the soft inner lining of the mouth, gums, tongue, or the lips. This can lead to severe bleeding and make it difficult for the patient to consume food. We suggest you get such an injury treated at the earliest by a dentist.
Other dental emergencies such as severe pain in the teeth due to cavities, pain in the jaws, bleeding gums, etc. have to be given immediate attention.
