A chipped or a lost tooth can really put a damper on your social engagements. Although this can seem like a terrible ordeal, it is actually quite common and easy to fix. The staff here is proficiently trained in placing crowns and veneers to cover up any cosmetic damage caused by day-to-day activities. In serious scenarios, we work closely with orthodontists and oral surgeons
If a tooth is knocked out, it is important to rinse the exposed area with salt water to clean it out. Pick up the tooth by the crown, never touching the root, rinse it carefully, and place it in a sterile container of milk. You can place an ice pack on the affected area to keep swelling down. Call our emergency line right away for further instructions. If there is excessive bleeding from soft tissue injury, or the jawbone might be damaged, visit the hospital emergency room.
Situations in which you feel like you can deal with the pain instead of coming in for evaluation might seem reasonable at the time, but this can actually lead to serious problems down the road. Toothaches do sometimes go away on their own, but in most cases, they are your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. They may be a sign that your tooth has a cavity. If ignored, the cavity will continue to grow. If caught early on, a simple filling will suffice. However if you continue ignoring the alerts your body is giving you, a root canal may have to be performed, or the tooth may need to be extracted.
Emergencies happen. When they do, it is comforting to know you have a team of individuals on your side who will work meticulously to restore optimal oral health.
