A dental emergency can be traumatizing and stressful, and in many cases requires prompt treatment. If you are experiencing any type of pain or bleeding after an injury or accident of some type involving the mouth, it is important to contact an emergency dentist right away. Dr. Nidal Elias can soothe your discomfort and address any dental trauma so that you can get back to normal, daily life.
Individuals of all ages should see a dentist after a tooth has been knocked out, become fractured, or if experiencing excruciating pain. Abscesses within the mouth or facial swelling of any sort require immediate attention. Any type of trauma to the mouth can cause tooth and jaw bone damage, so it is important to see a dental professional as soon as possible.
If your tooth has been knocked out of the mouth and you still have it, the tooth may be placed back into the socket if you see us within an hour. An avulsed tooth is a true dental emergency and can possibly be replaced if extensive damage to the tissue, nerves, and blood vessels has not occurred. We strongly encourage patients to avoid touching the root, and to place the tooth in a cup of milk or in saliva until arriving at the office.
If you have lost a filling or a crown has become loose, your teeth may be very sensitive to pressure and temperature changes. Tooth decay can be another reason crowns become loose, as the decay changes the shape of the teeth. It is important to make an appointment as soon as possible to get the treatment needed to restore function and appearance to your mouth.
Teeth are prone to cracks, breaks, and fractures. In many cases, these cracks are painless, but certain patients experience some degree of pain and tooth sensitivity. If you have a cracked or fractured tooth, come in and see us as soon as possible.
