Emergency Dental Services For Brunswick 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
Many kids, teens, and adults crack, chipp, or break a tooth due to an injury related to sports or exercise. If you damage a tooth, do not wait, call a dentist right away. Alternatively, if the injury extends past your mouth and requires additional medical attention, please call 911 or go to an emergency room in a hopsital.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
If a dental filling falls out the tooth that housed the filling could be in severe danger of breaking or getting damaged. You will want to see a dentist right away. Fillings can fall out due to decay happening between the tooth and the filling area.
Toothache can be a very broad term that covers a variety of issues. Regardless if you are feeling pain in your mouth caused by a tooth issue, we can help. Even if a toothache goes away after time you should still consider making a quick dental visit to ensure that any oral health concerns are handled.
There are a variety of reasons that you might have a swollen jaw. While all of them aren't dental in nature, many of them are. For instance, an abscessed tooth can cause a swollen jaw. If you jaw is swollen and accompanied by tooth or gum pain, consider making a quick trip to a local dentist.
Similar to cracked and chipped teeth, knocked out teeth are fairly common. It is possible in some cases to reimplant a knocked out tooth. If you knock out a tooth you will want to handle it by the crown and not the root, rinse it off with warm water and place it either in your mouth or in milk as you travel to the emergency dentist. In some cases, it may be possible to put the tooth back into the socket.
May Need A Root Canal
When tooth decay spreads beneath the gums into a tooth's root, it may be possible that the tooth can be saved with a root canal. During a root canal the decayed section of the tooth is removed from the root and the root is filled similar to a cavity filling.
It is not uncommon to notice bleeding or sore gums after flossing or brushing your teeth. That being said you shouldn't ignore them. Bleeding gums are often a sign that your gums are infected and you should consider seeing a dentist.
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.
