It is human nature to panic when suddenly, something goes dramatically wrong, and this is the same in a dental emergency. Whether it is a chipped tooth, the loss of a fitting or more seriously, the outbreak of an abscess or the sudden loss of a tooth- at the time, each can seem like a crisis. However, it is how you react after the initial shock and then deal with the problem that can make all the difference, and all of this means that if you are aware of what is the nature of the emergency beforehand, then you can handle situations better. The internet is full of little pointers as to what to do when things goes wrong, so you would be wise to do a little homework on dental emergencies; your dentist is always a good person to turn to for this too, so take time out to study all scenarios so that you are prepared for any eventuality. You can stock up with painkillers and soothing gels to help you through minor incidents; you should also have numbers to call in a serious emergency; some dentists work out of hours and can be ready at anytime for you. More importantly, always remember that you have your nearest hospital to fall back on if you feel that you are not coping to well during the crisis.
