When you have a dental emergency, it’s important to know exactly what you need to do in order to minimize long-term damage. Learning what you can about emergency dental care will help mitigate any problems you may run into.

Today, we’re going to take a look at some advice that applies to all dental emergencies. This knowledge will help should you end up in a bad situation.

Find the tooth
A lot of dental emergencies are knocked-out teeth, where patients come in to see a dentists to have their tooth reinserted into their gums. Dr. Lara Perry has a ton of experience in this regard, but the tooth is critical here. There’s little we can do to help without the tooth.

Manage bleeding
Any injury to the head – or mouth – bleeds a lot. They may not hurt as bad as other wounds, but they’ll make more of a mess. Application of pressure will help stop or manage the bleeding. If you can stop, or at least manage, the bleeding, our team here at Bella Vista Dental in Seguin, Texas, will have a much easier time of quickly fixing your damage.

Don’t panic
Remaining as calm as possible will help the emergency treatment go that much more smoothly. While a dental emergency is certainly stressful, there are a ton of different restorative dentistry options available to help you should it come to that. We’ll be with you every step of the way, and we just ask that you help us out by staying calm.
