Types Of Dental Emergencies & What We Can Do
Damaged Teeth Due To Trauma
- Knocked-Out Teeth – If you’ve knocked out a tooth, we may actually be able to be place your natural tooth back into your mouth if you act fast! Rinse off the tooth and place it into a container of saliva or milk. This seems strange, but it helps your tooth root stay alive. If we cannot save your natural tooth, we can fill in the gap with a dental implant or dental bridge.
- Broken Teeth – We can use a dental crown to repair and protect your broken tooth. If you can, collect the pieces of your tooth and bring them with you. The dental crown can protect the tooth, and shield it from any harmful bacteria in your mouth.
Pain Due To Toothaches
In addition to ruining your entire day, toothaches can be harmful to your overall oral health. A common cause of toothaches is damaged pulp inside your tooth, which can be removed during a root canal. We’ll make sure your tooth roots are fully cleaned, then we’ll seal your tooth for protection from bacteria.
