What to do during a dental emergency

Teeth are made to last a lifetime. They can withstand much impact and help us to consume healthy food to live a healthy life. From the young days we would have been guided towards how to take the best care of our teeth. From the correct methods of brushing and flossing and rinsing. Parents, caretakers and many of the best dentist Dubai would have attended to our teeth many times and time and again reminded us of the importance of the teeth and why you need to take good care of them. Throughout the year general dentists even recommend orthodontics Dubai to perfect your teeth.

All this would be done to ensure that our teeth remain healthy and strong in the years to come and last us a lifetime. But sometimes unexpected events can affect the health of our teeth. A trauma can lead to unexpected damage to your teeth and even lead to a loss of a tooth. Many a times we are not aware of what to do at the time of such an dental emergency. Though we may not expect a trauma to happen to us it is best to be prepared and knowledgeable of the steps to be taken at such an time.

The most common dental trauma is when a tooth gets knocked out. This can be caused during a heavy impact sport, a fall or even a accident at home, school, work or when travelling.  If a tooth does get knocked out it is advised to visit the neared dentist as soon as possible. Try to find the tooth that was knocked out and take it with you. You can rinse it water. If the tooth is in one piece it is best if you can reposition in it the location it was knocked out from originally. If you are not able to place it back in position keep the tooth as moist as possible ideally in a glass of milk. Most of the time if you reach the dental office within an hour it is possible to replace it. If not do not fear as dentist are trained to handle such emergencies and can even use dental implants Dubai to replace the lost tooth.

If the teeth doesn’t get knocked out but gets chipped or broken try to collect as many of these pieces as you possible. It is recommended to rinse the mouth with warm water. If bleeding is seen from the site keep a gauze in the area to stop the bleeding. And apply a cold compression in places of swelling to keep it under control. Again it is recommended to visit the dentist as soon as possible.

A toothache is also considered a dental emergency. It can be caused by various underlying dental issues. Sometimes even health issues can lead to dental problems. It is vital to get the assistance of a dentist to find the root cause of the pain. Till you visit the dentist, brush and floss as usual to remove any food pieces stuck within the teeth. To manage the pain you can use a cold compression or take a pain killer.[:zh]牙齿要持续整个生命期间。它们可以经受很多冲击,帮助我们消费健康的食物,过健康的生活。从小时候,我们就被指导如何最佳护理我们的牙齿。从刷牙、用牙线清洁和漱口的正确方法。父母、看管人和很多最好的迪拜牙医照料我们的牙齿并且不时提醒我们牙齿的重要性和您为何需要好好照料它们。一般牙医甚至推荐迪拜口腔正畸完美您的牙齿。

将做所有这些以确保我们的牙齿在将来保持健康强壮并且持续我们的整个生命期间。但是有时意外事件会影响我们牙齿的健康。创伤可以导致您牙齿的意外损害,甚至导致失去牙齿。很多时候,在该牙科紧急情况时我们不知道做什么。尽管我们不期待我们发生创伤,但是最好做好准备并且知道在发生创伤时要采取的步骤。

最普通的牙外伤是牙齿被打掉时。这可以在重冲击体育、跌倒或甚至在家里、学校、工作或旅行时的事故期间导致。如果牙齿被打掉,建议尽快访问附近的牙医。试图找到打掉的牙齿并且带着它。您可以用水漱口。如果牙齿是一块,最好将其置于原先被打掉的位置。如果您不能将其置回位置,最好将牙放入一杯牛奶中,尽可能保持湿润。大多数情况下如果您在一小时内抵达牙医办公室,可能置换它。如果没有,别害怕,牙医被培训处理该紧急情况,甚至可以使用迪拜牙种植体置换牙齿。

如果牙齿不是被打掉而是被切损或破碎,尽可能搜集多这些碎片。推荐用热水漱嘴。如果看到流血,在流血区域敷上纱布止血。在肿胀区域施加冷压加以控制。又一次,推荐尽快访问牙医。

牙痛也被认为是牙科紧急情况。它可以由不同潜在的牙科问题导致。有时甚至健康问题会导致牙科问题。得到牙医的支持找到疼痛的根本原因是很必要的。直到您访问牙医,像通常那样刷牙和用牙线清洁牙齿,以去除塞在牙内的任何食物残渣。要管理疼痛,您可以使用冷压或吃止痛药。
