Common Dental Emergencies
There are certain issues that commonly occur as dental emergencies. First, tooth pain. Tooth pain can feel different for everyone, depending on what their condition is. The problem with dental pain is that there can be many underlying causes. Many of these aren’t apparent to the naked eye, either. Getting a checkup in our office by a dental professional ensures the right diagnosis and treatment are performed.
A knocked-out adult tooth is another thing that’s considered an emergency. If you’re able to obtain the tooth and preserve it, we can determine if it’s still viable to be put back in your mouth when you’re in our office. It not, you don’t need to worry! We offer many replacement solutions to take care of missing teeth.
Other emergencies include a tooth that has a severe crack or break, or a dental restoration that’s been broken. If you think you’re experiencing a dental emergency, call our office ASAP!
Preventing Dental Emergencies
In some cases, dental emergencies are preventable. Dr. Gauthier recommends that patients visit our dental office twice a year for routine dental exams and professional teeth cleanings. Preventive dental care visits allow our dental care team to check the teeth, mouth, and gums for any signs of dysfunction. Early prevention can prevent complex dental issues and can save you time, money, and discomfort in the future. Taking preventive measures is one of the best tools a patient can use to improve their oral health and prevent dental emergencies.
