Chipped or Broken Tooth Treatment Emergency at Vancouver Dental Specialty Clinic
A sudden chip or break in your tooth can be disconcerting. Whether caused by a mishap in daily activities, biting hard food, or an unforeseen accident, immediate attention is paramount. Our clinic is adept at handling such emergencies, ensuring your oral health and aesthetic concerns are promptly addressed.
Sports Tooth Injuries: Dental Emergency
Sports and physical activities, while essential for health and well-being, occasionally lead to unintended dental injuries. Sports tooth injuries require urgent attention, whether it's a collision on the football field, an elbow during a basketball game, or a misjudged catch in a baseball match.
Common Sports Tooth Injuries Include:
- Dislodged (luxated) teeth.
- Avulsed (completely knocked out) teeth.
- Fractured or cracked teeth.
- Soft tissue injuries involving lips, cheeks, or tongue.
Rinse & Avoid Touching The Root: If a tooth is knocked out, gently rinse any debris but avoid touching the root. Try to reinsert it into its socket if possible. If not, store it in milk or a saline solution.
Apply Cold Compress: Use it to minimize swelling in the injured area.
Pain Management: Over-the-counter pain relievers can be taken (as per recommended dosage) if there's discomfort.
Protect The Mouth: If bleeding, bite on a clean cloth or gauze. Our clinic's sports dentistry experts are trained to handle these situations adeptly, ensuring minimized long-term damage and a quick return to your sporting passion.
Our Treatment Approaches:
For any dental emergency, our dedicated team will assess the situation and determine the most effective treatment:
- Dental bonding or fillings for minor damages.
- Veneers for aesthetic enhancements.
- Dental crowns for extensively damaged teeth.
- Root canal treatment when the tooth's nerve is involved.
Remember that immediate and expert care is just a phone call away at the Vancouver Dental Specialty Clinic in dental emergencies. Your health and smile are our utmost priorities.
