Emergency Dental Services
Dental emergencies differ in severity and signs, but when left untreated they can aggravate, which can have consequences on your overall health and well being. Overlooking or neglecting dental emergencies can lead to severe consequences, which can vary from losing a tooth to requiring to go through serious dental surgery. Giving attention to the problems that your teeth are signalling can assist you in preventing a dental emergency. Pay heed to these signs!
Toothache & Swelling
The most common signs of a toothache are localised pain and swelling. Some OTC (over the counter) and home remedies can desensitise the pain and curtail the swelling; however, as these symptoms are often indicators of a bacterial infection, they cannot be completely treated at home.
Swelling and pain followed by an abscess generally near the tooth’s root may be due to a cavity – it is a strong indicator that your teeth are invaded by bacteria and the internal structure of your tooth is susceptible to bacterial infection.
Besides, the outcome of a decaying tooth can be a systemic infection such as cellulitis that can spread speedily across the gums into your bloodstream resulting in swelling and pain. The pus from a dental abscess will have to be removed before the tooth is repaired using a root canal treatment; at times a filling may work; and in the worst case, the affected tooth will need to be removed to avoid further infection and damage to the remaining healthy teeth. Our experienced dentist may also prescribe antibiotics to get rid of the bacterial infection and avert the recurrence of the infection.
Tooth sensitivity is a common dental problem that is distinguished by acute steep pain when teeth come into contact with cold or hot drinks and foods. People experiencing tooth sensitivity have to manage this issue regularly. Although it is unquestionably a concern that you may want to discuss with your dentist, but regular tooth sensitivity is not a dental emergency and can be treated with specialised toothpaste and following your oral and eating hygiene habits.
When Does Tooth Sensitivity Get Severe & Demand Dental Care?
Abrupt attack of localised tooth sensitivity in response to sweet foods, as well as, cold and hot foods may be a sign of a grave problem underneath. People who do not usually experience tooth sensitivity may feel pain or uncomfortable sensations when eating if the pulp of their teeth is inflamed.
Pulpitis (inflammation of the dental pulp) caused by deep cavities or trauma – it’s a bacterial infection and a secondary result of tooth decay. If not urgently attended, this infection of the pulp can cause tooth loss. Our expert dentists can confirm pulpitis via an x-ray and treat the impacted tooth with a filling, but in severe cases, our dentists may have to carry out a root canal treatment or take out the tooth completely.
Weakening & Falling Out of Milky Teeth
Weakening of teeth is a very normal thing for kids who are yet to lose their temporary milky teeth. Loose teeth are anticipated between the age of 5 years and 12 years when milky teeth come out own of their own and are replaced by permanent teeth. When the teeth come out, petite bleeding and discomfort is normal thing for kids, but if the tooth is taken out roughly or it causes pain then it’s imperative to consult a dentist near you and make sure that everything is fine as it should be.
Weakening & Falling Out of Permanent Teeth
It is a matter of concern when one of the permanent teeth becomes weak and gives indications of a probable fallout. Moderate to severe pain can be anticipated but at times, a permanent tooth may become weak and loose without pain.
Periodontal disease and unhealthy gums are behind loose teeth, impacting the fibres and connective tissues that grip the teeth in place. Periodontal disease can occur from untreated inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) and gradually lead to teeth loss if timely treatment is not administered.
If your teeth become loose, it’s important to make an urgent appointment and get emergency dental treatment as quickly as is possible and try to save the teeth.
