Other Common Dental Emergencies

While these other issues may not always seem like emergencies, they definitely warrant a dental appointment:

  • Chipped Tooth – Whether it’s from biting into food, or from a run-in with a baseball or other unforgiving surface, chipped teeth are quite common. If you have the broken piece, you can bring it to the office with you. To manage any pain until you get to the office, try rinsing your mouth with warm water.
  • Cracked Tooth – Occasionally a tooth can crack and still remain in its place in your mouth. Whether you are in pain or not, you need to be seen by the dentist as soon as possible to keep complications from happening.
  • Cracked Filling – Fillings (usually older ones) can develop cracks from the repeated stress while chewing food. A cracked filling may or may not cause you pain, but it is another situation where it’s important to see the dentist before complications arise. If a portion of the filling becomes loose, be sure to remove it to prevent it from being swallowed or inhaled.
  • Swollen Gums – Swollen gums can be an indicator for several different causes. Most commonly it is a result of gingivitis, which typically develops due to poor oral hygiene. It’s important to see the dentist for this, as leaving it alone can cause it to progress to periodontitis, a more serious condition that can involve tooth loss.
  • Sensitive Teeth – You may find that drinking hot or cold liquids cause pain in your teeth. Or perhaps sweet or sour food or even cold air causes your teeth to hurt. If so, your teeth are sensitive. The dentist can help you determine the cause of your tooth sensitivity, and work with you to eliminate the pain.

So call our office today and get your dental emergency taken care of as quickly as possible. We look forward to serving you!
