If the tooth has been completely knocked out of the well, it is necessary to contact the dentist immediately. When the tooth falls out, tissues, nerves and blood vessels of the tooth are damaged. If a tooth can be placed back in the well within an hour, there is a chance that the tissues will recover and the tooth can be preserved.
What needs to be done if a tooth is knocked out:
1. Call and schedule a visit to the dentist.
2. Take the tooth by the crown part and wash it under warm water. DO NOT TOUCH the root of the tooth.
3. If you succeed, try to put the tooth back in the hole or behind the cheek.
4. If you can 't put the tooth back in your mouth, put it in a glass of milk, saliva, or water to keep the tooth up.
5. Visit the dentist as soon as possible.
The dentist will try to place the tooth in its natural recess. In some cases, it is possible to place the tooth in place, but if the tooth is too damaged, root canal treatment may be required.
Typically, the crown or seal falls out during meals. Once this happens, the affected tooth may have sensitivity to changes in temperature or pressure. The crown does not fit tightly to the tooth because the tooth beneath it begins to collapse. The destruction causes a change in the shape of the tooth, accordingly, the crown is no longer suitable.
If the crown fell off your tooth, sign up for an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible. The crown needs to be stored in a cool, safe place as there is a chance the dentist could put it back. The tooth may shift or collapse harder if the crown is not returned to place as soon as possible.
What needs to be done if it is not possible to visit the dentist immediately:
1. Apply cloves oil to the tooth to ease the pain.
2. Wash the crown and attach it to the tooth with dental cement, which can be bought from any pharmacy.
3. If the crown is lost, lubricate the top of the tooth with dental cement to ease discomfort
4. DO NOT use glue to glue crown into place
When you get to the dentist 's appointment, he will tell you if the old crown is still suitable. If possible, the crown will be glued into place with dental cement. If destruction has been detected on the tooth, the treatment will be carried out and the dentist will take you the impression to make a new crown.
Cracked or broken teeth are the most common dental problems. Since a person tries to preserve his natural teeth for as long as possible (thanks to advances in dental technology), the probability that cracks will appear on the teeth increases. There are many reasons why cracks may appear on teeth, for example, if a solid object is bitten, as a result of trauma, tooth scrapping and severe compression of teeth. All of these actions cause teeth to be subjected to extra strain and made more susceptible to cracking.
When tooth enamel cracks, pain sensations appear. If there is no pressure on the crack, there is no discomfort. However, once nudging with a cracked tooth occurs, the crack expands. The pulp and internal components of the tooth are exposed and painful irritation occurs. As soon as the pressure on the tooth weakens and the two parts of the cracked tooth connect to each other, the pain stops. If you do not treat this problem, the pulp is damaged and the painful sensations do not pass. As a result, a pulp infection can harm the bone and soft tissues surrounding the tooth.
Symptoms of the burst tooth:
• Painful feelings when eating.
• Sensitivity to hot and cold.
• Difficulty in determining the exact localization of pain.
What steps need to be taken at home:
1. Call the stomatologist
2. Wash tooth cavity and mouth with warm water
3. If bleeding occurs, press the sterile napkin for 10 minutes.
4. Apply a cold, wet kitchen towel to your cheek to minimise swelling and pain.
5. If you do not have the opportunity to visit the dentist immediately, apply dental cement to the affected area.
6. Accept anesthetic.
How the treatment of the cracked tooth is happening:
There are many different types of cracks on the teeth. Some can only be detected using an X-ray machine, while others are clearly visible to the naked eye. If the root of the tooth is also affected, the procedure of treatment of root canals is the most optimal treatment option. The pulp, nerves and vessels are removed from the tooth, and the resulting space is filled with guttaperus. In order to preserve the functionality of the tooth, a seal or crown is installed on it.
In case the crack severely damaged the tooth and there is no way to save it, the dentist will need to remove this tooth. There are a range of restorative options, such as bridges, dental implants, and partially removable prostheses. All these designs restore chewing, biting and spoken functions.
If you have any questions or concerns, consult your dentist immediately.
