Dental Emergencies

Even if you take all the necessary precautions to protect your teeth against damage, they can still become hurt through any daily activity. We encourage our patients to take preventative measures and wear a mouthguard during any physical sports. 

Below we have listed a few of the most common dental emergencies we see and treat here at Aspen Dental. 

 

Knocked-Out Tooth: A tooth can be knocked out from blunt force trauma to the face. If your tooth has been knocked loose, the first thing we suggest you do is to find the tooth and keep it moist. Your next step is to contact our office and speak with us. Tell us you are coming in for an emergency dental appointment. In some cases, if the tooth is uprooted perfectly, a reimplementation of the tooth is possible. If not, we offer multiple tooth replacement options. 

Broken or Chipped Tooth: a tooth can break in many different ways, but regardless of how it breaks, it is essential to know that we can help restore your natural tooth. Just like with a knocked-out tooth, it is possible to cement it back on if the tooth is located. 

Severe & Constant Toothache: the only way a cavity can be diagnosed is by a dental professional, but the first sign of decay is through an aching tooth. If you are experiencing severe and constant pain in a specific tooth, give us a call to meet with one of our Dr.s. 

Bleeding Gum Tissue: it is common for our gums to bleed after flossing for the first time in a long time, but it isn’t typical for bleeding to be constant. Bleeding and swelling of gum tissues could indicate the presence of periodontal or gum disease. Gum disease can be a severe issue for your oral and overall health. The earlier it’s diagnosed and treated, the better. 

Facial Swelling: swelling around your mouth and jaw can indicate an infection in your gums or a tooth, such as an abscess, and this is especially true if you are also experiencing pain. A tooth abscess is a pus-filled pocket that occurs in your mouth when you have a bacterial infection. A spot will not go away on its own; you will require dental care. As a result, it’s critical to treat the condition as soon as it appears to not spread to other parts of your body.
