If you have a toothache, this is usually an indication of a serious cavity or an infected tooth. As your enamel is worn away by decay, the vulnerable pulp on the inside of your tooth will become exposed to oral bacteria. If the pulp becomes infected, it can cause serious pain.
Whether your toothache is caused by a cavity or your tooth has become infected, it’s important to come Precision Dental right away for help. We offer restorative treatments such as fillings, dental crowns, and root canal therapy to repair your tooth and prevent further complications.
The most important thing to do if your tooth has been knocked out is to remain calm. It’s also very important to get treatment as soon as possible in order to save your tooth. Give us a call immediately to schedule a same-day appointment
While you wait for your appointment, make sure you only handle the knocked-out tooth by its chewing surface instead of the root. Also, keep the tooth in a cup filled with saliva or milk as this will help keep root surface cells intact. You can also keep your tooth in your mouth between your gums and cheek. Bring your tooth with you to your appointment Dr. Packard will do his best to save it.
A loose filling or crown is a serious dental emergency. If your dental work comes loose or is pulled-out while eating sticky or gummy food, your tooth will be very vulnerable to damage. The enamel could decay, causing a cavity or tooth infection. Getting your filling or crown replaced ASAP is critical, so contact us for an emergency appointment as quickly as possible.
A cracked or broken bonded tooth, crown, or veneer should be treated right away. If the damage is deep enough, the underlying tooth could also be damaged, so it is important to have the damaged tooth assessed by a dentist. It may be more than just cosmetic!
A minor chip in a crown, veneer or a bonded tooth is not an extremely serious emergency, but should still be treated quickly. This is because a chipped crown, veneer or bonded tooth can be very sharp and cut your mouth, and can make it uncomfortable to chew and bite.
If your gums are bleeding due to an oral injury and the bleeding has not stopped within an hour or two, come to see Dr. Packard right away. The lacerations to your gums may require stitches to ensure that they heal properly.
If your gums are bleeding a lot when you brush or floss your teeth, or they seem to be bleeding for no reason, you may have an advanced case of gum disease. Call today and come in for an emergency visit to get the care you need.
Cracked, chipped or broken teeth can happen due to grinding, accidentally biting a non-food object or a very hard piece of food, from using your teeth as tools to open packages, or from dental trauma from an oral injury.
Regardless of the cause of your broken tooth, it is critical to see a dentist right away. Even if the crack or chip does not look bad, it may be more extensive than it looks, and could cause complications like an infection, so contact Precision Dental for a same-day appointment right away.
