How To Know You Need A Calgary Emergency Dentist

Just about everyone has woken up in the middle of the night with a really bad toothache. No amount of pain killers seems to help with this type of a throbbing sensation. Sometimes, you bite into something and suddenly find that you lose your tooth in the process. These are times when you can’t wait several weeks for a dentist who is fully booked up. A Calgary emergency dentist would be necessary during these types of situations.

Times when a Calgary Emergency Dentist is Essential

Some people may become a little paranoid, thinking that everything is an emergency. While aches and pains can be difficult to live with, it is not all of these types of cases which will lead to an emergency. Sometimes a painkiller can solve this type of a problem for a day or two. You may even find that this is temporary.

However, there are times when you can’t ignore certain signs and symptoms. This can happen after you have had an accident. You will often damage your teeth when bump your mouth. It is common to lose a tooth or to crack some of the tooth after biting into something hard. A very loose tooth can be saved by visiting a Calgary emergency dentist. When you lose a filling, it can lead to other complications. You will begin to feel a lot of pain. The worst case scenario will be other teeth chipping nearby.

The sooner you visit the dentist and have the problem sorted out, the better. For example, someone who has lost their tooth in an accident will have more success during the healing process when they attend to this early on. The dentist will need to make sure the tooth is back in the socket, and this is a procedure.

What to Do in the Meantime

It is obviously going to be extremely painful while you wait for the tooth to be repaired. You may be at work while this happens. You may find that you have to be with the kids until your husband gets back from work. In the meantime, however there are a few things you can do in order to ease the pain and discomfort.

Paracetamol is always the first choice. However, don’t go overboard with this. A tablespoon of salt in a glass of tepid water is going to help you feel a little better. This acts as a mouthwash, and it is completely natural. Other natural solutions that you may want to consider are garlic, ginger, orange and lemons. These have always been effective in the past. Use toothpaste that is made for sensitive teeth and gums.

How to Avoid Injuries to the Teeth and Gums

One always ends up saying, “I wish I had done something else, then I wouldn’t have to go through this process” Of course, this doesn't help you when you are sitting in the dentist’s chair. However, there are a couple things that you can do in order to avoid these emergencies.

Many people lose teeth on the sports field. The simple plan is to wear a gum guard. Some people find that they benefit from wearing a gum guard at night. This helps prevent them from grinding their teeth away. Have regular checkups, and make sure that you don’t even ignore the slightest toothache. This could prevent you from having further complications.
