What is considered to be a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any dental problem that requires immediate medical attention. It can include bleeding that won’t stop, severe dental pain, serious infections, or a knocked-out tooth, among others. Here is what you should do if you’re experiencing some common dental emergencies: 1
Bleeding from the mouth
If you’re bleeding from your mouth, place a clean cloth on the wound and apply firm pressure for 15 minutes. In case there is an object in the wound, apply pressure around the object and not directly on it. If the bleeding does not stop after 15 minutes, seek immediate care from an emergency dentist. Call Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591 for an urgent dental appointment. Otherwise, go to the nearest emergency room.
Severe dental pain
There are several effective home remedies for mild toothache. However, severe toothache should be evaluated by an emergency dentist in Michigan (or wherever you live in the US). In the meantime, you can try rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater. A hydrogen peroxide rinse can serve as an effective mouthwash. This may help to relieve the pain if it’s caused by an infection. Applying a cold compress or ice pack can also provide relief from dental pain.
A tooth abscess is a serious dental infection. It develops when a bacterial infection spreads to the pulp of the tooth, i.e., inside the tooth. An emergency dentist can provide definitive treatment for a tooth abscess. This may include a prescription of antibiotics. The dentist can perform incision and drainage to allow the pus to drain out. Other treatment options include performing a root canal to get rid of the infection and save the tooth. In severe cases, it may be necessary to pull the tooth.
A knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency. The chances of saving the tooth are highest if it is restored within 30-60 minutes. You should make your way to an emergency dentist near you as soon as possible. The Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 can get you same-day urgent dental appointments with an emergency dentist in Michigan. In the meantime, hold the tooth by the crown (chewing surface). Clean the tooth by rinsing it with cold water. However, do not scrub it. Keep the tooth moist by placing it back in its socket in your mouth. Otherwise, you can also save it in some saliva or milk. If you have a tooth preservation kit available, you can use that.
How to prevent a dental emergency?
You cannot totally prevent a dental emergency. However, you can greatly reduce your chances of experiencing one by:
- Practicing good dental hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing daily
- Going to the dentist every 6 months for routine dental care
- Wearing a mouthguard and other protective gear during contact sports
Do dental insurance plans cover dental emergencies?
Most dental insurance plans from private PPO providers cover at least some dental emergencies. However, what qualifies as a dental emergency can vary depending on your insurance company and plan. Generally speaking, the higher your monthly premium, the more likely it is that the plan will cover common dental emergencies.
As a guideline, here are some options from a leading dental insurance provider:
- $19 average monthly premium: Coverage for routine dental care including checkups, cleanings, and routine X-rays; no deductibles or maximums; see any dentist you like but save more with in-network providers.
- $33 average monthly premium: All of the above plus restorative services like fillings, crowns, and root canals.
- $39 average monthly premium: All of the above plus coverage for orthodontic treatment including Invisalign (invisible braces).
