Why consult an emergency dentist?
Tooth pain is usually a sign of infection. If you do not to consult an emergency dentist and decide not to have the infection treated, it risks spreading to gums, other teeth, and even to the jaw. In certain serious cases, the infection may reach the bloodstream. Over-the-counter medications can help alleviate the pain, but the cause of the pain will persist.
An infected tooth needs root canal treatment. When the pulp – the tissue that lives inside your tooth – is infected, your antibodies head to the infected area to try and look after the problem, but there is not enough room at the tip of the tooth to let antibodies in. Swelling thus arises, and the dental pulp ends up dying. The infection must be eliminated by the treatment of the canal. During this procedure, the pulp is cleaned and replaced with a biocompatible rubber. The tooth is then sealed and protected with a dental crown.
Lost or damaged crowns or fillings
If you lose or damage a dental crown or filling, it must be replaced. Crowns and fillings protect teeth. If a tooth is exposed or only partly protected, it can weaken even more and even break. It may also completely fall off and need to be replaced. Tooth replacement is much more expensive and takes much longer to do than does an emergency visit to replace a crown or filling.
When a tooth suffers trauma, it may crack or break. Chewing may accentuate an untreated crack, and the following treatments risk being expensive. Trauma can also provoke internal damage. If one of your teeth suffered trauma, call us immediately to have it examined. Early treatment by an emergency dentist helps limit the care needed and prevents the pain from worsening.
