Accidents happen — and if you’ve had an injury to your teeth, gums or your mouth, you need to see an emergency dentist right away. Putting off dental treatment for a dental emergency now only increases the risk of permanent damage later, which could translate into more extensive and costly treatment. And if you’re hurting, an emergency dentist can help. So whether you’re suffering from a broken tooth, have lost a tooth filling or are desperately seeking toothache remedies, don’t put off a visit to your dentist to another day.
We’ve Got You Covered
A knocked out tooth
If a permanent tooth gets knocked out of your mouth, you should never put off going to the dentist. In fact, your best chance of saving a tooth that has been knocked out is to see our emergency dentists within one hour
Broken or cracked tooth
Broken, fractured or chipped teeth are a very common event. It usually doesn’t cause any immediate pain to the tooth. When this happens, it’s crucial to see a dentist. Apart from the pain and aesthetic concerns, not receiving the proper treatment can result in infection or further decay.
Bleeding that will not stop
Bleeding can be caused by trauma in the gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue. You can try putting a cold compress on the area to stop the bleeding, but if that does not work, then it would be better to see your dentist right away.
An abscessed tooth is an infection of the tooth that spreads to the root and exiting the bottom of the root into the jaw bone. With an abscessed tooth, you may experience intense pain, fever, facial or gum swelling, and open sores on your gums.
A broken tooth or an infection can cause sudden, acute tooth sensitivity. Intense sensitivity requires urgent dental care; however, minor sensitivity can be addressed at your next preventative care appointment.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
Emergency dental services for broken crowns or restorations may include either temporary or permanent solutions that enhance your beautiful smile and keep your tooth from being damaged.
Severe jaw pain
Because your jaw is directly linked to your ability to eat and breath, this a very serious emergency. Surprisingly so, it is very common that people suffer from a broken jaw – as a result of sports injuries, vehicle accidents, etc.
Toothache can be a sign of a far more serious problem. Some of the reasons a tooth may ache include gum disease, cavities, exposed roots, a decaying or abscessed tooth and more. Emergency dentists excel at finding the reason for a severe toothache.
