104 Dental Emergencies

Join Dr. Alex Koo, active duty Army emergency physician, as he discusses dental emergencies, a common emergency department complaint, but an uncommon educational topic.  We'll discuss an approach to collecting a focused history, physical, as well as formulating a thorough differential and treatments for common ED dental emergencies.  Some questions that we'll answer are: 
  • What are the red flags we should be aware about for dental complaints?  
  • What is the basic anatomy and nomenclature for numbering teeth?  
  • What differential should be considered for traumatic and atraumatic dental complaints? 
  • How should we treat dental pain? 
  • How do I splint a tooth in the emergency department? 
We answer these questions and more in this episode!
