Dental Emergency Prevention And Care

According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) most facial trauma can be prevented through the proactive use of safety gear. Providing protection for the face, teeth and jaw can prevent a person from having to receive emergency dental treatment for injuries such as broken or knocked out teeth, cut lips, tongue or jaw injuries. The first step in prevention is wearing the proper safety gear (protective equipment) for a sporting activity. Bicycling, boxing karate, football and any other sport require specified protective equipment. Masks, helmets and mouth guards can prevent a variety of injuries in both youth and adults. Another prevention measure is the use of motor vehicle safety components. Wearing your seat belt in a car or truck, as well as wearing a helmet when operating a motorcycle can prevent dental, facial and jaw injury. Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons would prefer not to have to perform dental implants or reconstructive surgery on patients who have experienced an injury as a result of negligence.

Dental Emergency Treatment

In the event of a dental emergency, an injured person should seek immediate dental care from their dentist or an emergency medical provider. With prompt treatment teeth can be saved and injuries treated quickly for best results. If you have experienced a dental emergency such as a broken or knocked out tooth or oral (mouth) injury seek treatment as soon as possible. Stop bleeding, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and ease pain. Call an emergency dental provider for an urgent care appointment. Your dentist can diagnose the problem and provide immediate treatment to repair the damage and relieve pain. Advances in dental medicine enable providers to save teeth and restore the aesthetic appearance of a patients smile after an injury.
