What's Your Dental Emergency?
Toothache can have various causes and can affect a single tooth or multiple teeth, leading to intense jaw pain.
If your symptoms are mild, we recommend having your toothache checked to prevent the worsening of symptoms and pain.
Inflammation is a common cause of toothache, which occurs when the dental pulp becomes inflamed. There can be multiple causes for this, such as tooth decay, damaged or lost fillings, issues with dental implants or crowns, or a bacterial infection.
Other factors that can contribute to toothache include:
- Injury to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which is responsible for jaw movement.
- Inflammation within the sinuses.
- Problems related to wisdom teeth, including impacted wisdom teeth.
- Lost or damaged dental implants or crowns.
We will conduct a thorough examination to determine the cause of your tooth pain, which may involve taking X-rays of the affected area if necessary.
Once the cause has been identified, we will provide you with a clear dental plan. This may include procedures such as removing the affected tooth, replacing a filling, or performing a root canal treatment.
In some cases, antibiotics may also be prescribed.
Broken or chipped teeth are common occurrences in dental emergencies, and we are fully equipped to assist you in such situations.
If possible, it is advisable to keep the broken segment of the tooth cool and place it in a clean container. Additionally, the tooth should be covered with your own saliva or milk. We will examine the broken segment to determine if it can be reattached to the original tooth.
In cases where you have broken or damaged one of your molars, we will conduct an examination to assess whether the tooth can be repaired using a filling or dental crown.
Depending on the extent of the dental damage, there are other options available, including:
- Composite bonding: This involves rebuilding the broken tooth to closely resemble the original tooth, ensuring a natural appearance.
- Dental veneers: These are thin coverings placed over the surface of the damaged tooth, restoring your complete smile.
We will discuss all available options and treatment plans with you, allowing you to make an informed decision.
Swollen gums can be caused by various factors and should not be ignored. Common causes include infection, gingivitis (early gum disease), issues with dental appliances, ill-fitting dentures, and food trapped between teeth and gums.
Ignoring swollen gums can lead to worsened infection, oral health problems, dental pain, and complications. It’s important to seek immediate advice and suitable treatment for swollen gums to maintain oral health.
Causes of swollen gums include infection, gingivitis, dental appliance issues, ill-fitting dentures, and food trapped between teeth and gums. Prompt treatment is necessary to prevent further complications.
If a tooth is injured or decayed, a root canal procedure may be necessary. This can cause intense dental pain as the dental pulp may be damaged, leading to infection.
A root canal procedure aims to preserve the natural tooth and prevent the infection from spreading further.
Our dentists, will provide guidance on the most suitable procedure to preserve your tooth and explain the steps involved in the root canal treatment.
The complexity of the procedure may vary depending on your specific needs. Rest assured, it will be performed under highly hygienic conditions to eliminate any risk of infection transmission.
The procedure entails thorough cleaning and disinfection of the tooth’s root. Finally, the root cavity is filled with gutta-percha, a permanent filling material.
By undergoing a root canal, you can save your tooth from extraction and alleviate the associated dental pain while effectively addressing the infection.
Experiencing tooth loss can be a distressing event, whether it occurs due to an accident, injury, or even while eating hard food. The lost tooth could be your natural tooth or a damaged crown or dental implant.
If you have lost a tooth due to trauma, our dentist may be able to re-implant it. It is crucial to handle the tooth with care and avoid touching the root. Ideally, place the tooth in a clean container with your saliva or cold milk. Contact us immediately, and we will prioritize your appointment to ensure prompt attention.
If re-implantation is not feasible, we will discuss alternative options with you, which may include a dental implant or a dental bridge.
During your visit, our dentists will thoroughly explain all available options for tooth replacement, considering your specific situation and needs. We aim to provide you with the most suitable treatment plan for your lost tooth.
If you have a damaged or lost filling, it can result in dental pain and potential infection. Our dental team is well-equipped to swiftly provide the necessary treatment to restore your tooth or teeth with fillings. In cases where infection is present, we can also prescribe antibiotics to address the issue.
At our clinic, we offer mercury-free composite white fillings, eliminating the need for traditional “silver fillings.” These white fillings not only enhance the appearance of your teeth, but they also prevent the metallic taste that some patients may experience with metal amalgam fillings. This modern alternative ensures a more aesthetically pleasing outcome for our patients.
