One of the most common reasons that people visit a dentist is due to tooth pain that they are experiencing. Any type of injury to the tooth or gums can lead to pain that cannot be ignored. In some cases, blood vessels or nerves within a tooth have become infected and damaged. In this type of situation, you need to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible.
Tooth injuries don't care about your schedule; they can occur at any time of the day or on weekends. Your tooth can become injured when you are engaged in any type of vigorous physical activity or sport. Other examples are a toothache that keeps you awake at night, swelling in or around your mouth, or continuous bleeding.
If you are suffering from a terrible toothache, you should contact your dentist before attempting any unproven treatment on your own at home. Your pain may be due to tooth decay or a tooth abscess. We can help relieve your pain and keep your dental problem from becoming worse until it can be treated properly at our office.
Another situation requiring emergency dental care is a tooth that gets knocked out. Your best chance of saving this tooth is to receive immediate dental care. But there is a one or two hour window where action must be taken to save the tooth. If you should have a knocked-out tooth, seek immediate emergency dental care so that your tooth can be saved.
An abscess is a serious infection that can reach into the pulp of a tooth: the soft tissue at the heart of every tooth, and beyond. This highly sensitive tissue contains nerves and blood vessels to supply your tooth. If it is destroyed, the tooth may require extraction. To prevent that, your dentist can perform a root canal procedure.
In a root canal procedure, your dentist will remove all of the diseased dental pulp and any debris found in the area. Next, they will replace the pulp with a filling material to protect the tooth. Finally, a dental crown is usually placed on a tooth that has undergone a root canal, as the tooth becomes fragile after the procedure due to lack of blood supply to the pulp chamber.
