Some situations may leave people needing urgent dental care. When issues develop with teeth and gums it can be a very worrying time. It is very important to seek immediate emergency treatment if an oral problem occurs. Pearl Dental Clinic offers a reliable and reassuring service for a variety of dental needs.
Any dental issue that needs immediate treatment is classed as an emergency. There are many scenarios that would warrant urgent treatment. Below are some examples of what a dental emergency could be.
Dental trauma can occur through contact sports, accidents, injuries, trips, or falls. It may be that a person experiences a dental trauma and the damage is obvious, such as broken or knocked out teeth, however, sometimes with this kind of injury, there may be no visible signs of damage. Just because there are no symptoms at the time does not mean that it is not a dental emergency. Damage could have occurred that is not visible, or a patient may experience pain or discomfort after the event. Following a dental trauma to the mouth or teeth, it is always advisable to seek advice from a trained professional as soon as possible, even if it seems like nothing is wrong at the time.
Broken braces are also classed as a dental emergency. Breakage to a brace will mean that the device is not functioning effectively but may also mean that the mouth is at risk of injury. Broken fittings, fixtures, or wires could cause damage to the soft tissue in the mouth and therefore an emergency dentist or orthodontist will be required to fix the issue. Similarly, if an Invisalign clear brace or other retainer is damaged then this will also need fixing as soon as possible to avoid complications to treatment. The longer it is out of the mouth the more detrimental it can be to the teeth straightening process.
