Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dentist in Seattle
The American Dental Association reported that the number one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. From backyard basketball games to competitive sports leagues, it’s easy to end up damaging a tooth or getting a tooth knocked out by another player. The same holds true for kids playing sports as well. While there are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard, a dental emergency is still possible.
Another leading cause of tooth injury is being in a car accident. Enamel on your teeth are strong but it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of car accidents each year, teeth are a common victim.
While may people seek treatment at the emergency room following a car accident, the ER does not treat tooth damage so it is important to schedule an appointment with your dentist as well to make sure your teeth and mouth did not suffer any damage in the accident.
Tooth infections are another common cause of dental emergencies. When untreated for a long period of time it can lead to a dental abscess which is extremely painful. An abscess is a major tooth infection that can settle into your jawbone and the floor of your mouth. If it does, oral surgery may be necessary in order to remove the infection. We can let you know if there is an abscess during your emergency dental exam.
BROKEN OR CHIPPED TOOTH
It is common for people to break, crack or chip a tooth or teeth when playing sports or in a car accident. As long as the tooth structure remains in place, we can typically correct it with various dental treatment options. During your emergency dental examine we can make sure the structure of the tooth is intact and review your treatment options with you.
If you have a broken or chipped tooth it is important to be seen as quick as possible by a dentist. Quick action can save the tooth, prevent infection and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment.
