Immediate Treatment  For Your Dental Health

What are the dental problems that require urgent approach? What steps should be taken to solve the problem?

People often do not have enough information on how to provide first aid for urgent problems with their teeth, which arise at unexpected times. However, with very simple applications the emergence of tables that are very difficult to analyze later can be prevented.

What are the dental problems that require urgent approach?

Toothache

• Food debris on the aching tooth and between the teeth should be cleaned using a toothbrush and dental floss, and the mouth should be thoroughly rinsed with salty water obtained by adding half a teaspoon of salt to the glass of water.

• ASPIRIN or any pain medication should not be applied on aching tooth. Due to their chemical structure, such drugs can cause irritation to the gums and surrounding soft tissues. This will cause a second pain to occur in addition to toothache.

• If there is swelling on the face due to inflammation, a cold compress should be applied to that area.

• A pain medication can be taken before going to the dentist.

• If a cavity has formed on the tooth due to caries, a small amount of clove oil (eugenol) soaked cotton can be placed there. Eugenol will reduce pain. However, while using this procedure, eugenol should not be caused to leak into the gum by using excess. Because clove oil also has destructive properties for soft tissues.

• Contact dentist as soon as possible

Tooth Fracture / Injury

• Dislocated teeth must be found.

• The found tooth should be held by the crown. By holding the tooth from the root part, the tissues here should not cause further damage. If the tissues in the root part of the tooth are severely damaged, it is not possible for the tooth to attach to its socket. Foreign substances on the tooth held by the crown should be washed under running water.

• During the process of cleaning the tooth surface, rubbing shouldn’t be done and brushes shouldn’t be used.

• Firstly, it should be tried to place the tooth into the tooth socket.

• Excessive force should not be applied while replacing the tooth. Otherwise, serious damage to the tooth and tooth socket can be caused.

• If the tooth can be placed in the tooth socket, it should be bitten after putting a clean gauze on it so that the tooth can remain in its place.

• In this way, the dentist should be consulted as soon as possible.

• If the tooth cannot be placed into the tooth socket, it should be preserved in milk or water until you go to the dentist.

• In order to regain the displaced tooth, tooth tissues shouldn’t be damaged, and the dentist should be consulted as soon as possible.

• If it has been preserved under suitable conditions and it has not been delivered to the dentist within half an hour at the latest, the chance of replanting the tooth by re-implantation is 90%.

Permanent Tooth Dislocation

If the tissues in the root part of the tooth are severely damaged, it is not possible for the tooth to attach to its socket. Foreign substances on the tooth held by the crown should be washed under running water.

• During the process of cleaning the tooth surface, rubbing shouldn’t be done and brushes shouldn’t be used.

Lip and Cheek Injury

• The injured area should be cleaned with warm water.

• If there is bleeding in the wound area, pressure should be applied with gauze to stop bleeding.

• A cold compress should be applied on the outside of the cheek or lip.

• If the wound is too large and bleeding continues, consult a dentist or nearest emergency clinic.

• Bleeding after tooth extraction:

• Slight bleeding after tooth extraction is normal.

• If there is severe bleeding, you should immediately contact your dentist or the nearest healthcare provider.

• If there is bleeding in the form of leakage, the gauze placed on the drafting area applied for half an hour by applying pressure will stop bleeding.

• If bleeding continues, it is best to contact your dentist. If this is not possible, after soaking a tea bag in water, wrap it in gauze and apply it with pressure instead of gravity. Bleeding will stop within half an hour due to the minerals that help the blood clot in the tea leaf.

• If there is no result, contact your dentist or the nearest health centre.

Suggestions Following Tooth Extraction

• After leaving your doctor, bite the gas tampon and keep it in place. If there is bleeding, you can apply the second tampon to the place of extracted tooth.

• Bleeding may occur in the event of leakage for about 4-6 hours after extraction.

• If possible, lie down with your head high after extraction.

• Do not eat anything for about 2 hours after extraction. Avoid hot foods.

• Do not use drugs that can increase alcohol and bleeding

• If there is any problem (toothache, excessive and prolonged bleeding), consult your dentist
