What is a Dental Emergency? 24 hour Emergency Dentist?
The Following are Dental Emergencies:
- A broken or lost tooth – broken teeth sometimes have exposed nerves and need to be treated to get a patient out of pain. Teeth with nerve exposures will need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant. We Have an Emergency Dentist who can perform an Emergency Tooth Removal the Same Day if necessary.
- A tooth that has been partially dislodged – dislodged teeth that are not stable need to be splinted and secured so the gum can heal properly, so a dislodged tooth can heal and tighten back up.
- Sudden, severe swelling – swelling is either caused by a trauma or an infection. An x-ray will need to be taken to determine the source of the infection and the patient may need to take an antibiotic.
- A sore on the gum that looks like a pimple – this may also be an infection or dental abscess. Sometimes Abscesses need to be opened, incised and drained on an emergency basis to prevent spread of infection.
- A broken or lost crown or filling – a broken restoration of any kind needs to be fixed asap to prevent leakage of bacteria into a tooth and irreversible tooth nerve damage. Irreversible nerve damage will require a Root Canal or Dental Implant.
- An object caught between the teeth that can’t be removed with brushing or dental floss – an object stuck in the gum can cause a gum infection or abscess
- Injuries to the lips, gums, or palate – injuries may need to be stitched. Immediate attention can reduce the risk of dental infection and unsightly scarring.
A Cracked Tooth needs to be properly diagnosed by an Emergency Dentist and repaired or removed ASAP.
A Tooth Cracked above the root is repairable. A Tooth Cracked down the Root Cannot be repaired. The Former needs a crown ASAP to prevent further cracking and tooth loss.
