Do you have a toothache, broken or cracked teeth, a swollen jaw, sore gums, or loose teeth? You may require emergency dental care to prevent the damage from getting worse.
In this blog, we’ve lined up some of the best tips on how to approach any such unfortunate situation and details about how you can get the best emergency dental care in Houston, Texas at Shepherd Dental.
Dental emergencies occur when you least expect them. When they do, it’s important to stay calm and approach the situation with a clear mind.
Here’s what you should do when you have a dental emergency:
If one or several of your teeth get broken, use warm water to rinse out your mouth and apply a cold compress to prevent and reduce swelling until you reach Shepherd Dental to get proper treatment.
If your teeth are knocked out, store them in milk and head to Shepherd Dental immediately. Be careful not to touch or disturb the tooth root.
If you reach the practice soon enough, Dr. Neshat Yazdi can try to place them back. If that is not possible, we will assess the damage and perform the necessary procedures.
When you have soft tissue injury caused by a bite to the lip or tongue, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress. If the swelling does not subside on its own, schedule an appointment with Dr. Neshat Yazdi at Shepherd Dental.
When you bite too hard on your denture and a tooth breaks or falls out, retrieve the broken piece and put it in a sandwich bag. Next, head over to Shepherd Dental. Dr. Neshat Yazdi will scan the damage and arrange for the fixture to be fixed as soon as possible.
