Vocabulary: Emergency dental service
The instructions were: " Go and consult your dentist before leaving, please!" ... Yet, students often blank while listening , which then leads them to suffer what are avoidable pains... and to cause their teachers to be on tenterhooks ... Ô you, young colleagues taking your students abroad, never forget to purchase an Insurance, especially if you take your students to the USA.
This page was required by some of you. They had had to face the unpleasant experience described below. Let me remind you that these treatments (which often recommend drastic measures ) are to be solicited in case of extreme emergency only and cannot replace the routine dental care we are all advised to take on a daily basis ( constant brushing, flossing, and regular visits to your dentists!)
|To get worse||To feel at ease|
|To be scared||to have a phobia|
|To suffer agony||Pain-killers|
|a dental trauma||gum pain|
|dental floss||a swollen cheek|
|a cavity in a tooth||a root canal|
|"over the counter"||a wisdom tooth|
an abscess a swollen cheek
|Pain relief||A broken/ chipped/ cracked tooth|
|socket of a tooth||To take out a tooth|
|a blister||burnt roof of mouth|
|become loose||a broken jaw|
* In case of a broken tooth, it's important to:
- collect the fragments and rince them in saliva or tepid water
- wrap them in wet gauze
- take them to the emergency dentist who may be able to repair your tooth
Some advice: As soon as necessary, go and ask advice from your dentist. Avoid self-medication and remember that in case of a dental infection, no aspirin or ibuprofene (which are anti-coagulants) should be taken. They might cause excessive bleeding.
Unless you're known to be allergic to "paracétamol" (acetaminophen), which is recommended in case of dental pain, stick to it. Ice or an icy compress may relieve the pain and limit oedema (but not the infection!). See a dentist.
Facial swelling To pull / take out a tooth ... emergency...
Be careful! All the British emergency dental services I read about on the Internet, and which had a 5 star-appreciation rate, most of the times, rushed to the solution of pulling out the painful tooth. Therefore, if you don't feel like being toothless, do avoid such services and have your teeth brushed and taken care of on a regular basis!
In any case, be brave enough to bear the pain and visit your dentist (and face the following test! )! Good luck for both!
