Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
If a tooth is chipped or broken you should not ignore it. Even if it doesn't feel painful and isn't loose, you should still contact a dentist. A cracked tooth is in severe risk of breaking under any additional pressure, and a broken tooth can cause a variety of problems. If your tooth is damaged, give us a call.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
If you feel like a dental filling is loose or if a dental filling falls out, you should call a dentist so that the filling can be removed and replaced. Without a filling your tooth is at high risk of breaking or cracking.
There are a variety of reasons you might feel a toothache, but regardless of the cause they shouldn't be ignored. The exterior of our teeth doesn't have a lot of nerves, so if you are feeling something in your tooth it likely means that decay has spread past the enamel.
A swollen jaw can be caused by a variety of problems. If you notice pain in your jaw or swelling it could be caused by a dental issue.
If an adult tooth is knocked out of your mouth you will want to see a dentist right away. In some cases, it is possible to re-implant a knocked out tooth. As long as the tooth is rinsed off and in good condition, and you get to the dentist quickly, it can be re-implanted.
May Need A Root Canal
Root canals are necessary when dental decay has not only spread past the enamel but has spread into the root. Without a root canal the entire tooth can be compromised and will need to be removed.
If you notice that your gums are red, puffy, or they bleed frequently when you brush and floss this can be a sign that your gums are at risk for gum disease. A quick dental appointment can help you address gum disease issues,
Other Types of Dental Repair
If you notice pain or have an issue with a dental bridge or dental implant or other issue, we can help. Never ignore a dental issue.
