Emergency Dentist in Ferndale MI Helps You Heal Your Smile
Dental emergencies can happen at any time, even without injury or trauma to the mouth. It is important to get the correct care as quickly as possible to make sure your oral health is maintained and the appearance of your smile can be corrected. It is important to call our emergency dentist in Ferndale MI.
Tooth emergencies can occur when a tooth breaks, cracks, becomes loosened, dental crowns coming off and cutting the mouth, or a tooth is knocked out completely. If there is no swelling, fever, difficulty breathing or swallowing, your dentist can most likely treat your abscess right in the office. Most of the time, hospitals do not have the right equipment to save or restore teeth, so if there are no other medical issues that need treatment in the emergency room, going Ferndale Dental is the best option.
If you have a dental emergency, you might experience the following and should call the office:
-Hit in the face or mouth
-Swelling in the mouth or facial area
-Bulging, swelling or knots on the gums
-Bleeding from the mouth
If a tooth is knocked out, time is of the essence for saving that tooth. Carefully rinse debris from the tooth. Do not touch the root. If possible, replace the tooth in the socket. Gently bite on a clean cloth to keep the tooth in place. If the tooth cannot be placed in the socket, it can be placed between the cheek and gum or in a glass of water or milk.
