If you face a dental injury for whatever reason, it is important that you speak with our dental office regarding the injury you have had. Most injuries that happen to the face need to be seen right away. This is because they are considered a dental emergency. A lot of injuries are important to have seen by our office.
When it comes to a dental injury that you have, always make sure to give our office a call. You can let us know what exactly happened and we can choose the best plan of action to take.
Dental Injuries and What to Do
Injuries to the face, jaw, teeth or areas of the mouth can be painful and problematic. When this is the case, you want to make sure that you're speaking with our office. The soft tissues in the mouth are able to heal rather quickly because saliva works to heal these areas.
Teeth, however, can be tougher to have healed if you do not see our dentists when this happens. This is because you want to ensure that you are keeping your teeth. If they become loose or fall out, having them and placing them back in the gums or holding onto them while in the gums is important. This will help you keep them in the gums and help them heal.
It is important to call our office, let us know what happened, and then come in to the office to speak with us about the help you need.
Take the time to speak with us and make sure you're not letting the injury sit for too long. Sometimes, problems cannot be fixed if you don't reach out soon enough. This is why we always recommend that our patients give us a call as soon as it happens, so we can see you and assess the situation.
