Dental Emergencies Happen Fast

Welcome back to the Holly Dental Care blog!

We are your trusted source for education and dental solutions in the Holly, MI area.

Today we want to talk about the kind of care we can provide that can not be scheduled months in advance.

We are referring to dental emergencies.

Obviously, dental emergencies tend to arise when they are least expected. You might be bobbing for apples at a Halloween party or rushing towards a game winning touchdown, when all of a sudden your world is turned upside down.

Your first instinct will be to freak out, but try not to do that.

The good news is that, though they can be painful and traumatic, dental emergencies are seldom life-threatening.

That said, they can be life-changing if not handled quickly and correctly.

And that’s why we are here.

As a comprehensive Holly, MI dentist’s office, we can provide prompt dental emergency services that your entire family can count on when you need it most.

Should you ever find yourself in an emergency situation, you will be seeking time-sensitive attention, but there is no reason to lose your cool.

Our Holly Dental Care team is well equipped to handle such scenarios.

Are you?

Let’s go over some basics so that if the time ever comes, you will know what to do.

What Do You Do During A Dental Emergency?

Honestly, it depends on your situation.

All dental emergencies can not be handled in the same way.

What About A Chipped Tooth?

There are so many things that can cause you to a chip or even break a tooth.

Have you ever tried using your teeth for opening something?

We don’t recommend it!

Using your teeth as tools is never a good idea.

Have you ever fallen flat on your face?

It happens to the best of us. A garden hose, a loose dog, a night of celebrating, and boisterous children are just a few of the things that can bring us to the ground fast.

Are you a cruncher?

Munching on stuff like popcorn, hard candy, BBQ ribs, or even ice can land you in a world of pain.

In any event, when you chip or break a tooth, you can expose the dentin and dental pulp, putting yourself at risk for a root canal or worse.

Depending on your situation, our team at Holly Dental Care has several dental treatment options that can restore your tooth to match your natural smile, if you act fast.

What If I Bite Myself?

You probably don’t taste as good as you think.

All kidding aside, if you accidentally bite your tongue, lips, or any other part of your mouth, you will feel the pain right away.

Start by cleaning the area that you cut and securing some sort of ice pack or cold compress. In most cases, the bleeding will stop pretty soon.

If that doesn’t happen, then don’t hesitate to call us to arrange for professional treatment.

What If I Lose A Tooth?

This can happen at school, work, home, in traffic, basically anywhere.

Regardless of where it happens, getting a tooth knocked out will no doubt be a painful, scary, and emotionally charged occurrence.

Your reaction time is crucial when attempting to save a dislodged tooth.

If you are able to locate the tooth, pick it up by the crown rather than the root, lightly rinse it off and place the tooth in water. Then, you really need to get to our Holly, MI dentist’s office as quickly as you can.

The goal is to save your natural tooth.

If we can not save your tooth, we will move forward with dental implants or other treatment solutions that best fit your needs.

For Dental Emergencies, Call Holly Dental Care

In case of a life-threatening emergency, like a blow to the head, call 911 or make your way to your nearest hospital emergency room.

For dental emergencies, call the Holly Dental Care team at 877-321-1933.

We set aside time every day for dental emergencies, and our main goal is to give you competent treatment as quickly as possible.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a
    lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being
    ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
