Dental Accidents & Facial Trauma
One major type of dental emergency that patients may experience over the course of their lives is a sudden injury or traumatic situation. This could involve:
- Tooth fracture
- Partially dislodged tooth
- Fully dislodged tooth
- Significant Oral Bleeding
- Jaw/lip injury
Our practice offers several restorative solutions that can help relieve the pain you’re experiencing and rebuild the tooth’s structure in a durable and attractive way. If the accident is too severe and the tooth must be removed, high-quality replacements are available as well.
Dental Emergencies Due to Oral Care Neglect
The other major type of dental emergency is when an advanced infection occurs within the tooth because of oral healthcare neglect at home and/or the presence of a traumatic injury. Patients will likely experience severe pain in a specific area of the mouth, excessive sensitivity to changes in temperature, and even darkened enamel in the specific tooth. If these symptoms are familiar to you, don’t wait to reach out to Wayne Family Dentistry for assistance. The earlier we assess your condition; the better chances are that we can successfully revitalize and preserve the tooth.
Care at Home
Most dental emergencies can be completely prevented with a little bit of diligence at home. Consistent brushing, flossing, and dental checkups are key to keeping the teeth healthy and strong as well as preventing small problems that could turn into emergencies later. It’s also important that athletes be sure to wear protective mouthguards whenever they go out to play, as dental injuries are one of the most common types of sports injuries.
Teeth can sometimes become so damaged that restoration is completely impossible, whether due to decay or trauma. While extracting a tooth is never our first choice, sometimes, it’s absolutely the best thing we can do to preserve a patient’s oral and overall health. We take our patients’ comfort very seriously, so whenever we perform an extraction, we always use a gentle touch and a generous amount of local anesthesia to ensure that their experience is relaxed and stress-free from start to finish.
