What Is a Dental Emergency?
Painful dental emergencies may happen immediately or can develop over time from a smaller dental issue that wasn’t treated. If you are experiencing inflammation and pain in a tooth or the jaw area, it is important to contact us immediately before your problem progresses.
A lost crown or filling usually occurs during eating. Crowns can become loose because the tooth beneath is decaying. The decay causes the tooth shape to change, meaning the crown no longer fits the tooth. If completely dislodged, the affected tooth may become sensitive and painful. If this occurs, it is important you call us and arrange an emergency same-day appointment to reinstate your crown or filling.
Although cracked or broken teeth are common and fairly painless, if a crack extends to the root of the tooth, it can be extremely painful. Cracks and broken teeth may happen for different reasons, including grinding, biting, and trauma. To avoid further trauma, schedule an emergency same-day appointment with us if you have a crack in your tooth.
Traumatic dental injuries can be caused by an accident or sporting activity. The majority of these problems are minor, such as a chipped tooth. However, if untreated, a chipped or cracked tooth can lead to a painful infection. More severe injuries involve your tooth becoming loose or being knocked out completely. When a tooth is dislodged, the mouth, tissues, nerves, and blood vessels become damaged. If treated within an hour of dislodgement, there is a possibility the tissue can grow to support the tooth again.
We Are Here to Help
Regardless of the extent of your injury, your tooth will need an urgent examination to take the best course of action, as well as to inspect its neighboring teeth to ensure further damage does not go unnoticed.
Pain caused by dental emergencies almost always get worse without treatment. If not dealt with, dental issues can jeopardize your physical health and lead to more severe problems than they initially are. At Family First Dental, we are here to help you resolve your dental problem so you can get back to your top health and life quickly.
