Emergency Dental Services For Auburn Patients
There are many different dental issues that you could classify as a dental emergency. Simply put, any dental issue that requires immediate attention can be seen as a dental emergency. Our team in Lisbon Maine would be happy to help you with any dental emergency services that you need.
Here are some dental emergency scenarios we tend to see:
Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
If you experience a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth you should make a dental appointment right away. A tooth can become chipped, cracked, or broken due to an immediate injury like at a sporting event. You will want to see a dentist immediately to help handle this.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
If you have a dental filling for a cavirty that feels loose or that falls out of your teeth, you should immediately call a dentist to have it replaced right away. A missing filling puts that tooth at risk of damage.
A strong toothache that is pervasive or that is consistently coming back is often a sign of a dental issue. You want to make sure you don't ignore any dental pain around your teeth or gums. If you feel radiating pain in your mouth or sensitivity, consider calling a dentist.
A swollen jaw can be a sign of many different dental problems. A swollen jaw can be a sign of an abscessed tooth or another severer dental problem. If you jaw is tender and you have any other dental symptoms, you should call a dentist in your area for an appointment.
A knocked out tooth is fairly common among athletes. But it can also happen in your regular day life. If your adult tooth falls out you need to make an immediate dental appointment. If possible, bring the tooth with you. Make sure to only touch the crown of the tooth and keep it submerged in saline, milk, or held in your own mouth.
May Need A Root Canal
Tooth pain may be a sign that you need a root canal. When dental decay spreades below the gumline it can cause pain and sensitivity. A root canal might be the only way to save the tooth.
Bleeding around the gumline is often a sign of gum disease. If your gums bleed consistently or bleed for a long period of time or are sore to the touch, you do not want to ignore it. Consider setting up a dental appointment to make sure your gums are safe.
Other Types of Dental Repair
If you feel any pain or notice signs of a dental issue including gum disease or dental decay donn't wait for your next check-up to see a dentist. The earlier you can get to the dentist the better.
