Don’t Ignore Dental Emergency Symptoms
Here are some situations that require urgent dental care, along with their symptoms:
- Toothaches– A toothache usually occurs due to inflamed pulp in the center of the tooth. Symptoms include pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, and swelling around the tooth. Common causes include tooth decay, tooth infection, or injury. Tooth fillings are usually an effective solution for tooth decay, and a root canal can clear the infection from inside your tooth.
- Infections/abscesses– A dental abscess is an infection, usually from untreated tooth decay or gum disease, that has spread to surrounding tissues. Symptoms are pain, swelling, and redness of the mouth and face. Infection can spread quickly. An abscess can even cause swelling of the throat and threaten to block the airway. Call us immediately if you suspect infection.
- Injuries– Most of the time, a dental injury affects one or more front teeth. If a tooth is knocked out or broken, bring the tooth (or pieces) with you to your appointment. Rinse it in warm water, being careful not to touch the root, then place it in a container of milk or saliva. If we cannot save your tooth, we have tooth replacement options like dental implants to help you regain your smile.
