Even though you have got a horrible feeling of shock, mixed with generous doses of fear and panic, and the pain is starting to set in, if you are well prepared, there is no need for your accident to overwhelm you. Being prepared is the key when you suddenly need an emergency dentist in Southgate.
The trouble with having an accident where your teeth get knocked out is that for a while, it’s hard to be rational and together. That’s why being prepared is key to getting through the accident with the best outcomes. Now is not the time to waste precious minutes trying to remember the address or phone number of your dentist here at Adams Dental. You need to have our number already in your phone, preferably under something like ‘emergency dentist in Southgate’ so someone else can easily look it up if you are too busy spitting teeth and blood and picking teeth up off the pavement, sports pitch or court.
Also, if you are a sports coach, it’s a good idea to look up the local emergency dentist whenever your team is playing away, just in case you need to rush someone to the dentist to get their teeth put back in.
If what you do for fun could possibly end up with you and your teeth parting company, there are things you can do in advance to make sure you are reunited:
Whenever you are off to do that thing you love, take a clean handkerchief and a small pot of milk with you. And make sure that you and your fellow players know what to do when teeth start flying.
Here’s the drill:
- Fish out the clean handkerchief. Bite down on it and try to stop any bleeding
- Carefully pick the tooth by the crown, being very careful not to touch the root. If it’s filthy dirty, give it a rinse in milk or saliva, and then try to put it back into the empty socket
- Or store it inside the mouth, tuck it inside the cheek, or put it in that pot of milk.
- Get yourself to the emergency dentist in Southgate within 2 hours to get it put back in.
