My Tooth Hurts Badly, but Is It a Dental Emergency?
I’m not sure if I need to visit a emergency dental office near me. What problems are considered emergencies?
Emergency dental services generally include:
Broken or Fractured Teeth
Broken or fractured teeth need treatment quickly to prevent further damage. If a sharp edge is bothering you, apply dental wax to it and then call our emergency dental office for an appointment.
Having a knocked out tooth is a serious issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. If the knocked out tooth is found, rinse it off, holding the tooth by the crown, and see if you can ease it back into the socket until emergency dentists can provide a more permanent solution.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
There are many reasons why you might be experiencing toothache pain or pressure. To alleviate your pain and determine the cause of it, please call for an appointment with emergency dentists, who will see you as soon as possible during our normal office hours.
Make an appointment to see your dentist for mild tooth sensitivity when drinking hot or cold liquids, but make an appointment to see emergency dentists capable of handling more immediate problems if your teeth are exceedingly sensitive, or if the sensitivity came on suddenly.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Dental decay can create painfully large cavities where the tooth root is exposed. The emergency dentists near you can relieve your pain and decide the best method for repairing your tooth.
Always seek emergency dental care for an abscessed tooth and the intense pain that accompanies this condition. An abscessed tooth that is left untreated can lead to serious complications that will impact your dental health.
Lost or Loose Fillings
While they may not seem like an emergency, lost or loose fillings weaken your teeth and expose the cavity to further decay. Contact our office for an emergency examination during our regular office hours and we will attempt to see you as quickly as possible.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
While many people consider broken crowns or lost restorations to be simple cosmetic issues, the underlying tooth can experience further damage without the crown protecting it. Our skilled dentists offer temporary or permanent solutions for broken or lost crowns.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
If your metal braces are causing you orthodontic pain or injury, call our office to schedule an appointment. We can alleviate your pain and stabilize the metal braces.
Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding
Bruxism, which is teeth grinding against teeth, results in tooth enamel being worn away. Typically, emergency dentists can reinforce weakened teeth and fit you for a night guard to prevent further damage.
The combination of sinus pressure and tooth pain may indicate an oral infection. Call our office right away to schedule an appointment.
What should I do for a more serious predicament?
I believe that my pain is very serious? What should I do to get emergency care?
Please call 911 or have someone take you to the nearest ER if you are suffering from:
- Severe swelling of your face or gums
- Bleeding that you cannot stop
- Trauma to your face, head, teeth or jaw
