Types of Dental Emergencies
Dr. French and her team treat patients with a variety of dental concerns. Some of the most common emergencies that Dr. French treats include:
- Severe Tooth Pain: If you have frequent or severe toothaches, an underlying oral health problem is likely the cause. Tooth pain can be caused by TMJ disorders, impacted wisdom teeth, or dental infections. Severe tooth pain is most likely caused by an abscess and requires immediate care. Contact our office if your teeth are causing you pain. We will find the cause of your tooth pain and create a treatment plan for you.
- Excessive Bleeding: Many patients find that their gums bleed after brushing and flossing. Although not an emergency, this is a sign of gingivitis or gum inflammation. Alternatively, if your mouth is bleeding excessively, contact us immediately. Excessive bleeding, especially after a dental procedure, needs to be stopped as soon as possible.
- Lost Tooth: If you have just knocked out a tooth and can locate it, hold it by the crown. Rinse it in cool water and transport it to us in a cup of milk or saliva. The tooth needs to be kept moist if it has a chance of being reattached. However, if we cannot reattach the tooth, we can provide a dental implant. Implants are the gold standard of dental restorations that feel and look like natural teeth.
- Broken Dental Restoration: Do you have a fixed or removable restoration that is broken or damaged? Contact our office and we can help create a custom replacement for you. Dental bridges, dentures, dental implants, and even crowns need to be in good shape to help support your oral health. When these restorations are uneven or broken, it can make it difficult to eat and talk. It is important to receive a replacement as soon as possible.
