Dental emergencies can happen in the blink of an eye, causing you or a loved one immense pain and fear. In these situations, it’s important to remain as calm as possible. Please contact Michel Dental in either Silver Lake or Topeka, KS today for the skilled assistance and friendly face you need most during this trying time. Dr. Michael Michel can help provide relief from a wide variety of potential emergency situations.
What are Dental Emergencies?
- Partially dislodged tooth
- Fully dislodged tooth
- Broken or fractured tooth
- Cracked or chipped tooth
- Lost filling or crown
- Painful toothache
- Something stuck between teeth that can’t be removed
- Oral bleeding
- Injury to the soft tissue or gums
While a significant portion of dental emergencies happen completely by accident and can’t be avoided, there are some tips that patients of all ages can follow to ensure that their smiles stay safe. Don’t ever try to open difficult packaging with your teeth – use scissors instead. Be careful when eating particularly sticky or hard foods. When participating in an athletic event where physical contact with a hard surface or another person is possible, make sure to always wear a sportsguard.
What Should I Do?
If you’re experiencing heavy oral bleeding or a possibly broken jaw, please proceed straight to the nearest emergency room for the immediate care you need. Once you’ve received treatment, please contact our Topeka or Silver Lake location if you’re in need of help with any lost and/or broken teeth that occurred during the accident. Dr. Michel and his dedicated team here at Michel Dental are always here to help.
