Emergency dental care treatments:
Large cavity, that undermines the tooth, breaks and the tooth becomes very painful. This could mean that the cavity has reached the nerve. These teeth may need a root canal or a crown.
Broken tooth with no or slight pain. Can be sharp to cheeks, lips or tongue. Depending on how big the filling is and how big the chip is, a tooth like this would need a filling or a crown TMJ pain.
Jaw joint by your ear is painful especially when you move or jaw. Pain during opening or closing. You may need a bite guard, bite adjustment and massage therapy.
Extreme pain to hot, cold or biting or aching all the time. The could be many different things and could be solved by adjusting the bite to doing a root canal.
Broken front teeth. These will need a large filling or a crown. If you can find the broken piece of tooth, bring it in and we may be able to use it to repair the tooth.
Lost or loose fillings or crowns. As long as the crown and the tooth are in good shape we can re-cement the crown back on. Lost fillings can usually be replaced as well.
Knocked out tooth. If your tooth has been knocked out, don’t scrub it, rinse under water only if it is dirty. Lay on the floor and have someone else hold the tooth by the crown of the tooth, orient it properly and have them push it back into the socket. At the same time, lift your feet in the air to help distract you. Keep holding it in place for 30 minutes and call us so we can splint it in place for a few weeks. If you cannot get the tooth back in the socket, place it in milk and call us right away.
