A dental emergency refers to a condition where you may require immediate dental attention to save your teeth from pain or further injury. You cannot turn a blind eye to such conditions because, if ignored, they may lead to many complications. In the worst-case scenario, you may have to undergo tooth surgery to treat such complications. Visit us if you feel pain, swelling, unexplained bleeding, or any other discomfort in your mouth.
What are Considered Dental Emergencies?
- Excruciating Pain
Toothache is common in many events, but if the pain becomes unbearable, do not take it lightly. It is best to visit us for a dental emergency case. We will look into the condition and relieve you of the pain. We may perform a quick digital X-ray to identify the exact cause of pain in your teeth. A proper diagnosis will get you the treatment of the problem and avoid further complications.
- Fractured Teeth
Fractured teeth may happen because of an accident, injury, or biting on hard foods and objects. When you ignore fractured teeth, the fracture may reach your tooth roots, thus worsening the condition. The best solution here is to visit us immediately for the treatment.
- Foreign Object Between Your Teeth
Some people use their teeth to bite objects instead of using appropriate tools and devices. It may lead to injuries, and they may also get foreign objects lodged between their teeth. Try flossing your teeth if it helps. If flossing doesn’t work, visit us for immediate dental care. Lodging foreign objects between your teeth may lead to immense pain. It may also damage your gums and teeth and cause bleeding.
- Lost Dental Restoration
You may lose your dental restoration, such as crowns, fillings, etc., after any accident, injury, or other events. Lost filling not only affects your aesthetic appearance but also impacts your tooth functionality. Visit us for treatment of your lost filling immediately. Depending upon the severity of the condition, we may use a different filling or a crown to restore the tooth.
- Gum Infection
Many people ignore gum diseases because the symptoms often go untreated for too long. The formation of pus on your gums is one such symptom to look out for. This problem, if not addressed on time, may lead to gum infection, which may keep advancing. Visit us immediately if you experience bleeding, swelling, or pus in your gums.
- Soft Tissue Injury
Soft tissue injuries lead to a lot of pain and discomfort. Treating your soft tissue injuries at the earliest is highly recommended. In case the wounds are deep, we would recommend sutures to cover them up.
