Cavities, Toothache, Chipped Teeth
Dental emergencies are always uninformed but should never be neglected. If you suddenly experience intense pain in your tooth, you should seek emergency dental treatment instead of seeking home remedies for the pain. Some of the common forms of dental emergencies include:
Sudden toothache, fallen crown, chipped tooth, cracked/chipped tooth, Knocked-out tooth, Loose or lost filling or crown and gum bleeding.
Remember, below are general suggestions, and it’s important to consult a dental professional for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, contact your dentist or an emergency dental clinic as soon as possible.
If you experience sudden dental pain, the chances are that you have been suffering from dental cavities all along without realizing it. Our dentist will diagnose the source of pain and recommend the right treatment. Dental Emergency Woodbridge is open 7 days a week with late evening hours.
A toothache may be in the form of dull or sharp pain.
If you have a severe toothache, it could be a sign of a tooth decay, dental abscess, damaged fillings, or gum infection. Rinse your mouth with warm water and use dental floss to remove any food particles that may be stuck between your teeth. If the pain persists, see a dentist immediately.
You may develop a small or medium chip on the teeth due to trauma, excessive tooth grinding, biting on a hard object, or dental cavities. You should seek immediate dental treatment.
Our dentist are trained to handle any emergency dental issue and provide pain management and the ideal dental treatment.
Save any broken pieces and rinse your mouth with warm water. If there’s bleeding, apply a piece of gauze or a damp tea bag to the affected area for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Visit a dentist to evaluate the damage and discuss treatment options.
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, try to save any pieces that have come off and rinse your mouth with warm water. Apply a cold compress to your face to reduce swelling, and see a dentist as soon as possible.
If you have knocked out a tooth, hold it by the crown (the part that is usually visible in the mouth) and rinse it with water. Do not scrub or remove any tissue fragments. Try to reinsert the tooth into the socket, if possible, or place it in a container of milk or saliva. Seek immediate dental care within 30 minutes for the best chance of saving the tooth.
If you have a loose or lost filling or crown, see a dentist as soon as possible. Try to keep the area clean and avoid chewing on that side of your mouth.
If you are experiencing any of these dental emergencies, it is important to seek immediate care from a dentist. If you are unable to see a dentist right away, you can take over-the-counter pain medication and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
Dental Emergency, Dental trauma refers to any injury or damage that affects the teeth, gums, or surrounding oral structures. There are several potential causes of dental trauma, including:
Accidents and Sports Injuries: Dental trauma often occurs as a result of accidents, falls, or sports-related injuries. Direct blows to the face or mouth can lead to fractures, dislocations, or avulsion (complete removal) of teeth.
Motor Vehicle Accidents: Car accidents or other forms of vehicular trauma can cause significant dental injuries, especially if the individual involved sustains facial impact or facial contact with hard surfaces.
Physical Altercations: Physical altercations or fights can result in dental trauma. Punches, kicks, or blows to the face can cause tooth fractures, displacements, or even tooth loss.
Biting Hard Objects: Biting or chewing on hard objects like ice, pens, or fingernails can cause dental trauma. The excessive force applied during such activities can lead to tooth fractures, chips, or cracks.
Oral Piercings: Tongue, lip, or cheek piercings can increase the risk of dental trauma. Accidental contact with the jewelry or traumatic forces applied to the piercing site can cause injuries to the teeth, gums, or surrounding tissues.
Misaligned Teeth or Malocclusion: Teeth that are misaligned or improperly positioned can make them more susceptible to trauma. These teeth may be more exposed and prone to injuries during accidents or impact.
Bruxism: Habitual teeth grinding or clenching, known as bruxism, can lead to dental trauma. The excessive forces exerted during grinding can cause tooth wear, fractures, or looseness.
