common dental emergencies
Toothaches: The feeling of a toothache is never a pleasant one. Though this dental emergency may not be as scary as others, it should still be looked at as soon as you start to feel pain. The most common cause of toothaches is tooth decay or damage. Even though toothaches may be common in children whose teeth are growing in but should still be taken seriously and looked at. The first thing you’d want to do in the case of a toothache is to clean out your mouth and rinse with some warm water. If this does not help, take the allotted amount of over-the-counter pain medicine and book an appointment with us so we can help ease your pain.
Chipped Teeth & Broken Teeth: It’s incredible to think about just how strong our teeth are. We put them through so much daily wear and tear that it’s only a matter of time until an accident happens and they chip or break. There are a variety of methods to choose from when it comes to fixing this dental emergency but it all depends on the size and severity of the chip. A small chip will require a tooth-colored filling or bonding agent. If the break is a larger one, we may have to consider alternative options. Veneers are a flawless and natural solution for any chips on your front teeth and will restore your functionality as well. The process of getting a chipped or broken tooth repaired is simple and quite painless and if the emergency is not causing you much pain, schedule a next-day appointment with us and we will get your smile back to good health.
Knocked-Out Teeth: If your tooth has been knocked out, look for the missing tooth and try to remain calm. If you happen to find your tooth, gently rinse off the crown portion of the tooth avoiding the root. If you can, place the tooth in a glass of milk and head to the dentist right away. The sooner you get to us, the greater the chance we will be able to replant your tooth and avoid tooth loss. If replanting does not work, we have a variety of custom options for your tooth replacement needs for every budget.
Lost Filling/Crown: If you happen to lose your crown or your filling comes out, refrain from eating on that side of your mouth and call us to schedule an appointment as soon as you can. You may feel increased sensitivity where the emergency has taken place and shouldn’t wait to receive treatment. At Tatum Point, our team will get you sorted out with a new filling or crown.
