Emergency Dental Services For Sabattus Patients
When we talk about dental emergencies there are many different issues that could be included. Basically speaking, if you have a dental issue that is not life-threatening, but does need immediate attention, it is a dental emergency. This can include any of the following issues.
Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
If you have a tooth that is chiped, cracked or broken due to an injury or impact, you should quickly make a dental appointment. Damaged teeth can become infect or sustain more damage if not quickly treated.
Lost/Loose Dental Fillings
Dental fillings can last years but they are not full proof. If decay happens around the filling or there is an issue the filling it may come lose or fall out entirely. If your filling falls out you should immediately go to a dentist.
Pain in a tooth should never be ignored. Even when the pain goes away, it could still be a sign of an abscessed tooth, gum disease, or another problem.
A swollen jaw can be caused by a variety of different problems. Not all swollen jaws come from dental issues, however, in some cases a swollen jaw can be a sign of a dental infection below the gumline. So if you have a swollen jaw and oral pain, consider setting up an emergency dental visit.
One common athletic injury is a knocked out tooth. If you tooth is knocked out it is possible to re-implant it assuming you go to the dentist quickly and the tooth is in good condition. Bring the tooth with you, in either saline, milk, or in your mouth when you go to the dentist.
May Need A Root Canal
Tooth pain is often a sign that decay has spread throughout the tooth. If your decay has spread beneath the gum line to the roots of the tooth, a root canal might be necessary to save the tooth.
If you notice blood around your gums when you brush or floss, this could be a sign that you have gum disease. Frequently red, swollen, or bleeding gums are often a sign of gum disease.
