Types of Dental Emergencies
Three main reasons for dental pain are tooth decay, tooth infection, or injury.
- Toothaches / Tooth Infection – If tooth decay has gotten out of control, sometimes a cavity gets deep enough to cause pain. You may only need a tooth filling to repair the decay, but if the cavity has infected the root of your tooth, you may need a root canal and dental crown.
An injury or accident can also damage your tooth to the point that a root canal is needed. Root canals have a bad reputation, but we know how to make it painless for you and make sure the tooth does not bother you again.
- Injuries (Broken Teeth or Knocked-Out Teeth) – An accident or any kind of trauma can damage or knock out a tooth. If you have a tooth knocked out or broken, bring the tooth (or the pieces) with you in a small container of milk or saliva, being careful not to handle the root. We will make every effort to save your tooth.
