A broken tooth is a dental emergency. Dental emergencies like loose teeth, chipped teeth and fractured teeth require urgent attention by a dentist. A knocked-out tooth is another example of a dental trauma. Quickly finding an emergency dentist with easy access can mean the difference between losing or saving that injured tooth.

Make sure you bring the knocked out tooth with you so that our dentist can re implant the tooth back into its socket if possible.
When picking up the knocked out tooth try to pick it up by the crown of the tooth and not the roots. The crown of the tooth is the top of the tooth.
Gently rinse the tooth while holding the crown and if you can put it back into its socket. Keep your tooth in a cup of milk or a small container and bring it with you.
What is not a dental emergency?
Well if you are not in pain and you have a chipped tooth that requires smoothing down or you have a crown that needs re-cementing, then these do not constitute a dental emergency in the sense that they are not urgent.

Can dental emergency be avoided?
The truth is that dental emergencies can happen to anyone. However, there are certain things that you can do to avoid them as much as possible.
A routine dental x-ray and check-up by a qualified professional dentist who provides you with honest advice and has modern equipment to detect and prevent decays in your teeth can help you avoid certain dental emergencies. If your children play contact sports with other kids, then wearing a mouth guard can protect them from injuries leading to a dental emergency.
At Pure Dentistry, our dentists make custom-fitted mouth guards. To make these mouth guards, the dentist takes an impression and builds a plastic model of your teeth. The benefit of getting a dentist to make your mouth guard is that the dentist can precisely assess your teeth and build the most fitting mouth guard for your teeth. These mouth guards are made to suit the unique shape and arrangement of the teeth in your mouth and therefore you should expect these mouth guards to be more comfortable to wear. Speaking with these custom-fitted mouth guards is much easier than other varieties and they won’t impede your breathing.
