While no one wants to experience any kind of emergency, including a dental one, it’s important to know when to seek immediate care. Having a plan in place for these situations can mean the difference between recovery and losing a tooth or multiple teeth.
We understand the critical nature of dental issues and have the expertise to treat your emergency dental needs. While dental emergencies are not a common occurrence, they can happen to anyone at anytime. From common to the unexpected, we offer the following services and more to give you the best treatment options when immediate care is essential.
A toothache, one of the most common dental complaints, can be a minor discomfort brought on by cold or hot food or can become a debilitating pain that disrupts your day entirely. In either case, pain in your teeth indicates further problems that require professional care. We will treat your toothaches at the source, relieving the pain while treating the deeper issues that may have caused it.
Much like a painful toothache, sore gums can be a warning sign of very serious dental issues. Along with minor problems, sore gums can be caused by gum disease, which can progress quickly and cause a range of dental problems. Early detection and immediate treatment is essential in the problems that cause gum issues, especially when that cause is periodontitis or gingivitis.
A common dental emergency that occurs is cracked, fractured or broken teeth. This type of tooth damage can be caused by poor oral hygiene or by accidents. Immediate care is imperative to best recover or repair cracked and fractured teeth. Rinse out your mouth with water and find any broken tooth fragments. Place the fragments in cold milk or water and bring it with you to our office.
