Mouth injuries can happen at a moment’s notice. Whether you are playing a physical contact sport or you fall and hit your mouth, these injuries can be severe. Several types of mouth injuries require immediate medical attention. The longer you wait to visit a dentist or medical professional, the more likely you are to lose a tooth, for your mouth to become infected, or require a more extensive treatment plan.
A knocked-out tooth, for example, is an injury that requires emergency medical attention. The faster you receive medical help, the greater chance you have of saving your tooth. Another injury that requires immediate medical attention is if you crack and chip a tooth and the pain is so severe you can’t bite down on it, or if you have an abscess or a toothache that causes so much pain you can’t eat, sleep, or talk.
