Did you know that around 40% of dental emergencies occur during sports? Wearing protective mouth gear can help protect you from sports injuries, however if you do experience an accident here’s what you can do. For teeth that become dislodged, do your best to save the tooth and get to your dental provider immediately as your tooth may be able to be saved. If your tooth becomes broken or chipped, again save any pieces if you can and contact your dental provider right away.
For gum tissue or soft tissue that is injured or bleeding, apply pressure with a cold compress to the area, and do your best to contain the bleeding. If possible, you can also use a warm saltwater rinse to stop bleeding.
If you’re experiencing sensitivity to hot or cold foods or beverages, or a constant dull ache that won’t go away, this can be an indicator of an infection. Don’t wait for this pain to go away on its own, as it will only get worse over time, putting you at risk for infection to spread to other parts of the body.
Contact your dentist right away because the quicker we can diagnose your condition, the quicker we can get you feeling better. Being proactive and contacting your dentist right away may also mean the difference between saving and losing your tooth.
