Emergency Dental Services For Monmouth Patients
A dental emergency is any dental issue that needs an immediate solution but is not life threatening. If you or someone is experiencing a life threatening emergency, call 911 or go to a local ER. But if you are experiencing any of the below dental issues, give us a call and we will help you get seen by a dentist right away.
Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
Millions of adults and teens have issues every year regard chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Teeth can break do to chewing on a hard object or from an injury. Call a dentist right away and bring any pieces of your tooth that fell out.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
If you notice that a dental filling has fallen out or feels loose, you should not delay in seeing a dentist. A missing filling can lead to things getting into the tooth and causing the tooth to break or get infected.
Dental pains are often a late sign of a serious dental issue. Recurring dental pain or severe pain could be a sign of an infection or tooth decay that has progressed to the nerve. Call a dentist right away.
A swollen jaw can have many causes. But one common cause is an issue with your lower row of teeth. If there is an infection below your gum line it can lead to a swollen or sore jaw.
A knocked out tooth can sometimes be re-implanted. Bring the tooth with you and use ice or a cold compress to reduce swelling on your way to the dentist.
May Need A Root Canal
A root canal is needed whenever dental decay spreads to the tooth's root. Without a root canal you will likely experience a severe toothache leading to the surrounding teeth getting infected.
Bleeding or sore gums are often signs of bacteria infecting the gums. While sometimes your gums will bleed temporarily because of too much pressure, if your gums bleed frequently you should see a dentist.
Other Types of Dental Repair
Again, if you feel like anything seems off like a dental implant or bridge is loose, or something is painful in your mouth, don't wait for things to get worse. Make an appointment quickly so it can be handled quickly.
