Suffering a dental emergency can be stressful for anyone, especially for people with little or no dental insurance. If these problems go untreated, they can lead to more severe dental and health problems.
For example, if a person has developed a toothache, avoiding treatment can lead to bacteria buildup and infection. Dental experts recommend rinsing the mouth with warm water, followed by using a cold pack to prevent swelling.
Commonly caused by participating in sports, chipping, breaking or losing a tooth is suggested to be treated within a half hour after the injury occurs. Prior to going to a dentist office or emergency room, a lost tooth should be rinsed with water and placed back in the person's mouth between their cheek and gums. If it is a chipped or broken tooth, try to keep it in the gums until the person is able to be treated.
People who need to be treated for a dental emergency, but have little or no dental insurance can benefit from finding a discount dental plan. Signing up for a low-cost program will allow patients to visit a dentist's office of if necessary, an emergency room, and receive the proper treatments to correct these oral hygiene complications.
