Dental emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time. They can be quite frightening, serious and painful, so prompt treatment is almost always required to alleviate pain and to ensure the teeth have the best possible chance of survival. If your family has a dental emergency, make an appointment with one of our highly trained dentists at Shortline Dental in Tulsa as quickly as possible. We understand that time is of the essence in these situations and pride ourselves on our responsiveness.
Types of dental emergencies
Sometimes teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding or biting on hard objects. In other cases, fillings, crowns and other restorative devices can break or fall out of the mouth completely. Depending on the severity of the damage, tissues, nerves and blood vessels may also be injured. If someone in your family is experiencing any of the following, you are likely having a dental emergency that requires immediate attention:
- Tooth is knocked out (avulsed tooth)
- Filling or crown comes loose
- Tooth breaks or cracks
- Tooth becomes dislodged or loosened
One of the most important things to do in a dental emergency besides calling our Tulsa dental office is to remain calm. In most cases, we are able to help our patients make a full recovery.
