Urgent, Weekend and After- work Dental Emergency Treatment

While we all try to be careful with our pearly whites, accidents do happen. Sometimes, these accidents occur when we’re off work and after business hours. If a dental emergency occurs after work on a weekday, you should try to address the issue as soon as possible. However, if an accident happens on the weekend or after work, here are a few things you should do to maintain oral health and avoid pain and further damage:

Stop the bleeding: If you suffer a cut in your mouth, you may not even realize it. The blood can coagulate in your mouth and may not be visible. If you bite down on something  and feel pain, there may be a bleeding lesion that needs attention.

Rinse your mouth with warm salt water: This home remedy has been used for centuries to heal wounds and cuts in the mouth. All you need is a cup of salt water and a few minutes.

Contact your local emergency dentist: Contact us as soon as you can so we can assess you and get your treatment started.

Gum Disease Can Cause An Emergency

At OnCall Dental in Fresno CA, we know it can be easy to dismiss gum disease – especially early gum disease – as a serious issue. After all, if you catch it early enough, simple flossing and. brushing could be enough to hold it at bay. But even with a consistent dental routine, bacteria can still creep into your gum-line and loosen your teeth. So, while it’s not always en emergency, unchecked gum disease almost always turns into one – or several!

This is why we encourage all our patients to treat blood in the sink like the emergency it can be, not the nuisance it currently is. Visit us for gum disease treatment if you so much as suspect you might have it, and we can ensure the emergency ends right then and there. In order to keep you informed, our team has put together a list of major emergencies that this condition can lead to.

The Results of Unchecked Gum Disease

  • Jaw pain
  • Bleeding gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Bone recession

At OnCall Dental in Fresno CA, we provide emergency dental care for all sorts of conditions, from gum disease to traumatic injuries. Contact us today and find out how we can help you!

What’s A Dental Emergency?

What constitutes a dental emergency? The dictionary says an emergency is an unforeseen crisis requiring immediate action. At OnCall Dental in Fresno, we think that’s about as good a definition as you’re going to find.

Here’s our quick summary of five common dental emergencies:

  • A broken or chipped tooth. This certainly meets the standard of an emergency. Whether it’s the result of an injury, or because of brittle teeth, a broken or chipped tooth could lead to unwanted consequences if it is not treated promptly.
  • Jaw injuries. If you’ve broken your jaw then a trip to the emergency room is probably in order. But a dentist should also be in the loop. He or she will evaluate your oral cavity and teeth to see whether they have also sustained damage.
  • Severe toothache. The sooner treatment for a severe toothache begins, the better. A bad toothache could indicate tooth decay, and there could be infection that threatens the tooth. The sooner treatment begins, the better the chances of saving the tooth.
  • Bleeding gums. This may indicate gum disease. As with a toothache, prompt treatment is best. When it is caught and treated in its earliest stages, gum disease is curable. If is also preventable with brushing and flossing twice a day.
  • Knocked out tooth. If you have a tooth knocked out, make a beeline for the nearest urgent dental care. An emergency room will do. Time is of the essence. If it is treated within an hour or so there is an excellent chance the tooth can be saved.

All of these emergencies can be dealt with effectively if you seek immediate dental care. OnCall Dental in Fresno is an important resource for emergency dental care. Walk-ins are always welcome.
