Conditions That Require Urgent Attention
If you have experienced any of the following, contact our dentists right away:
Tooth Pain: Often caused when the nerves inside the tooth root are irritated, your discomfort can be the result of infection caused by decay or an injury. Symptoms include pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, and bleeding or swelling at the site.
Broken, Fractured, or Cracked Tooth: Damage can leave your tooth vulnerable to infection or damage to the inner nerves, root, and soft-tissue. A diagnosis can determine the source of your fracture, allowing us to tailor your treatment accordingly. Before receiving care, rinse any tooth fragments from the smile and apply an ice pack outside the area to your cheek. To stop bleeding and alleviate pain, apply clean gauze and take ibuprofen.
Knocked Out or Avulsed Tooth: Reattachment is possible if treated within one hour of avulsion. When a tooth is knocked out, handle the tooth by its crown to avoid damage to the root and rinse debris away from the site and the tooth with warm water. Place it back into the socket if possible; if not, preserve your tooth in a mixture of salt water or milk.
Lost Crown or Fillings: A lost restoration can be painful and expose the tooth to infection and damage. When a crown falls out, store it in a cool, safe place before making your appointment, so our team has the chance of reattaching it. If we are unable to, we provide you with a new restoration.
Abscess: A tooth abscess is a bacterial infection starting at the root. This should not be ignored, as it can turn into a possible life-threatening condition. If you are experiencing moderate pain throughout your jaw, ear, neck, and above your affected tooth, contact us immediately.
