Types of dental emergencies
Toothache: There can be various causes for a toothache. One of the most common cause is tooth decay. When a person is suffering from a toothache, our team firstly takes steps to relieve patients from pain and then starts the treatment. The decayed part of the tooth is removed and the tooth is restored. If a root canal treatment is necessary, patients are informed about the same and the treatment is performed.
Swelling gums: Gums can swell because of an infection at the root of the tooth. Steps are taken to alleviate pain and swelling and necessary treatment is provided.
Knocked out tooth: A tooth can get knocked out from an accident. Such a tooth can be saved if it is put back in the socket with an hour from the incident. Patients can try and put back the tooth in place or can store it in the vestibule and rush to our office at the earliest.
Chipped tooth: A chipped tooth can be restored using appropriate dental materials. If there is a pain, some medicines may be provided to relieve pain.
Fallen crown: A dental crown may fall out because of an accident or because of loosening. This can cause sensitivity and pain. Clove oil can help patients reduce pain. The crown should be brought to our office in order to cement it back in place.
