Emergency Dental Problems
Below you can learn how to treat sudden dental emergencies at home before you visit our office. Some of the most common dental emergencies that our office treats include:
There are many common causes of tooth pain and sensitivity. Anything from dental injuries to tooth decay can create this dental problem. Take pain medication and call our office for an appointment. Let us know if you have any other symptoms accompanying your pain, as well as the areas of your smile that are affected. That way, we can find the source of your tooth pain and find the right treatment.
Lost Permanent Tooth
If you have just lost one of your permanent teeth, hold it by its crown. You can transport the tooth, if it is found, to our office. Place it in a cup of cold milk to keep it moist. We may be able to reattach the tooth if it is brought to our office in time. Gently press a clean cloth to your tooth socket to stave off bleeding. If we cannot reattach your lost tooth, we can provide you with a dental implant. Implants act just like natural teeth and easily blend in with the smile.
Have you just broken a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture? Contact our dental office for treatment. Do not attempt to place your restoration back in your mouth, as this can damage your teeth and gums. If possible, bring the restoration to our office. We can replace the restoration if it cannot be reattached.
It is common for patients to experience bleeding after tooth extraction treatments. However, it is abnormal for patients to experience continual bleeding several days after their procedures. Contact us if a blood clot has not formed at the tooth socket after two days. We will find the cause of excessive bleeding.
Object Stuck Between Teeth
The best way to remove an object from between teeth is to floss gently. Do not try to use any other methods to dislodge the object as this can damage your teeth or gums. In our office, we can use special dental tools to remove the object and keep your smile intact.
