Dental emergencies are nothing new - people have always had teeth fall out or get knocked out, have broken or damaged teeth on food and have needed emergency dental treatment. As dentistry has progressed, treatment has become more sophisticated, as we understand more about how our teeth work and what the best thing to do is in the case of a dental emergency. However, there are still many myths about dentistry and teeth, particularly when it comes to what to do in a dental emergency. Dentistry myths can not only be unhelpful but can actually do more damage to a person’s oral and general health. So what should do you in a dental emergency in Puyallup? Here are five dentistry myths can actually compromise your oral health in a dental emergency.

A dental emergency can be a really painful and disruptive event, often cropping up out of the blue (or so it may seem). Not knowing what to do in a dental emergency can cause further problems down the line and can even cost you a tooth. Tooth pain is always a sign that action is needed. In fact, not acting quickly or taking the wrong action can cause further damage to the tooth and can even lead to permanent tooth loss. So what do we mean when we talk about a dental emergency, what are common mistakes that people make when faced with tooth pain in Puyallup and why does it matter what you do when faced with a dental emergency? Read on to find the answers to these questions.

Wisdom teeth removal is a major rite of passage for many in their late teens and early twenties. They post images of their swollen cheeks on social media, share videos of themselves acting loopy from the anesthetics on YouTube, and enjoy an excuse to drink as many smoothies as possible. But why do we have these teeth in the first place if most of us just get them removed?

Accidents always seem to happen when we least expect them. When those accidents involve tooth damage, it’s important to know what steps to take. Being prepared before a dental emergency occurs can save a damaged or knocked out tooth, prevent infection and decrease the need for extensive treatment.
