Although dental injuries are commonplace, they require immediate care. At Vassey Dental Partners, we are committed to helping patients heal their teeth and gums. If you or a loved one have a dental emergency, please contact our Peachtree City, GA office for treatment. They can help treat tooth pain, broken dental restorations, and more.
Here are some tips for common dental emergencies:
- A knocked-out permanent tooth: Place the tooth in a cup of milk or saliva to transport to our office. We can try to reattach the tooth. If this is not possible, we will provide you with a dental implant. Dental implants replace teeth at the root and help prevent shifting teeth or overcrowding.
- Cracked or chipped tooth: If your tooth has been recently injured, rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area. Place a cold compress on the face to keep swelling down. We offer dental veneers and tooth bonding to help restore the look and function of damaged teeth.
- Toothache: If you have a toothache, do not put aspirin on the tooth or gum tissues. Contact our office for immediate care. Sometimes toothaches can be caused by decay or gum disease, so it is imperative that patients receive treatment immediately. We will help diagnose your problem with x-rays and digital images.
Preventing Dental Emergencies
Please contact our office as soon as possible if you have a dental emergency. We will help you get the care you need immediately. There are some simple steps you can take to avoid accidents and injuries to your teeth.
If you play contact sports, wear a custom mouthguard. Custom sports mouthguards help prevent chipped, cracked, and loose teeth. Avoid chewing on hard foods that can crack teeth such as ice, popcorn kernels, and hard candy. Additionally, never use your teeth to cut or open things. This can easily cause damage to your tooth enamel.
