Why go to Emergency Dentists in Auckland

Sometimes, you may not be able to tell whether it’s necessary to seek emergency dental care. If you are ever unsure whether the severity of an injury or dental problem warrants emergency dentist services, it pays to give your dentist a call just in case. Read on for a helpful guide for most tooth injuries.

Chipped or Cracked Teeth

If you accidentally chip or crack a tooth, whether it be from a sports injury, eating food that is too hard, falling off a Lime scooter or any other type of accident, the severity of the injury will determine whether you go to the dentist immediately or how long you are able to wait for an appointment.

If you suffer from any of these injuries, you may be able self-assess if it is severe or not. Generally, your injury can be considered sever if either there is a large piece of the tooth missing or cracked, or if it’s painful to touch, that is, the tooth nerve ending may be damaged. You should seek urgent medical care if either is the case.

Knocked Out Teeth

If your tooth is knocked out completely, you should always seek immediate medical attention.

Dentists recommend you try to put the tooth back in its socket in the meantime, and if it will not stay there try to touch it as little as possible. Keeping it in a cup of milk or saliva is the best idea.

There are many other reasons you may need an emergency dentist, and it is not always as easy to tell as a physically broken tooth. If you feel unbearable pain that prevents you from sleeping or eating, we are only a phone call away and will most likely recommend you to come and get it checked out.
