Emergency Dental Near Pownal
A dental emergency can happen in many different ways. For example, a kid playing a sport might lose a tooth due to a hard hit. Or an adult with a filling might feel the filling break or get loose. Or you might just notice some oral pain that isn’t going away. If you have an emergency that is affecting your teeth/gums, you should see a dentist right away. Not every office is equipped to handle walk-ins and emergencies. Here at Two Rivers Family Dentistry, we work hard to handle emergencies for local patients. Here are a few more examples of dental emergencies:
Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
Sports injuries commonly cause chips, cracks or broken teeth. Another common cause is dental decay below the surface of the tooth in the roots and pulp. If your tooth gets damaged don't wait to see a dentist.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
If you ever feel like a filling in a tooth feels off or it fully comes out you need to see a dentist quickly. A loose filling is often caused by decay and without the filling your tooth could easily break under pressure.
Pain in a tooth shouldn't be ignored. It takes a lot for a tooth to start hurting and tooth pain is usually a sign of an underlying issue. If your pain is consistent, severe, or recurring, call a dentist.
There are a few different causes of a swollen jaw. But often when there are problems below the gums in the roots of our teeth it can cause a swollen jaw. If your jaw is swollen and there isn't an obvious injury or cause consider mentioning this to your dentist.
Like a damaged tooth, a knocked out tooth needs immediate attention. In some cases, if the tooth is recovered and in good condition, it is possible to re-implant a tooth.
May Need A Root Canal
Root canals are needed when tooth pulp gets infected in the tooth roots. Common symptoms are dark gums, severe toothaches, and extreme sensitivity to temperature that lingers.
Gum disease's most common symptom is puffy/sore/bleeding gums. If your gums frequently bleed when you brush/floss them or are swollen, you should discuss it with a dentist.
Other Types of Dental Repair
Waiting for your next dental appointment is never the right call if anything feels off, painful, or loose. You should always talk to a dentist if you notice problems with your teeth and gums.
