Emergency Dentist in the Turner Maine Area
There are a variety of dental emergencies that can happen from issues with dental implements including bridges, fillings, and crowns, to issues with the tooth and gums themselves. If you have any of the below symptoms or issues, do not hesitate to make an emergency dental appointment. We serve patients throughout the Southern Maine area and work with local dental offices as well, so we can help you find a dentist when you need them.
Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
If a tooth crack exposes to the dentin (often yellow) or pulp (pink) you should see a dentist immediately for a solution as exposure can lead to serious infection.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
When a filling is placed in a tooth it is flush with the tooth, but as decay eats around the filling it can lead to the cavity reforming and for the filling to get loose, break, or fall out. Replacing a filling is the best way to handle this.
Toothaches have many causes but almost all of them are signs of an underlying oral issue. If you have a severe toothache, seek a dentist right away, if the toothache is not severe, still try and see a dentist sooner rather than later.
Swollen jaws can have many causes, but one common cause is an oral infection. When combined with other symptoms like toothaches, or a strange/bad taste in your mouth, it is often a sign that there is an infection or abscess.
If a tooth is knocked out due to an injury, you should see a dentist right away. If possible bring the tooth with you as it is sometimes possible to save the tooth and re-implant it.
May Need A Root Canal
Root canals are necessary when decay spreads into the tooth root. This often causes a severe tooth ache. A root canal can save the tooth from needing to be removed and replaced.
Swollen, puffy, or red gums can often be a sign of gingivitis or other gum diseases. While it is sometimes normal to see blood if you brush your teeth or floss too hard, if it is consistent you should talk to a dentist about it.
Other Types of Dental Repair
If you ever notice any issues from a toothache that won't go away, to a loose filling, don't wait to see a dentist. A quick appointment can be the difference between a small fix and a big problem.
