An Untreated Dental Emergency Can Lead to an Unfavorable Outcome

Dental Emergencies

Dental pain is a sign that something is wrong. Whether it is the development of a cavity, the early stages of gum disease, or a trauma such as an abscess or knocked-out tooth, it needs to be addressed right away by a dentist in Quail Meadows. Most dentists build time into their daily schedules for emergency dental care, but there are short-term treatments—like cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medications—that will ease discomfort until you can see an emergency dentist. Don’t think that just because your pain subsides or becomes tolerable that you should leave the issue untreated. The problem will only get worse and can cost you in more ways than one.

Dental Pain – Many factors—including non-dental issues—can cause dental pain. They include migraine headaches, sinusitis, TMJ, and myofascial inflammation. Find an affordable dentist in Quail Meadows who will identify the source of your dental pain.

A dentist can treat pain caused by the following:

  • Abscess
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Inflamed pulp
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Dislodged teeth
  • Missing fillings and crowns
  • Broken braces

Dental Trauma – Dental trauma is common, with children being affected the most often. A large number of children sustain damage to their permanent teeth before the age of thirteen. Injuries to the teeth and mouth include fractures, loosening, or a tooth being knocked out of its socket.

It is crucial to get help quickly in a dental emergency to minimize damage and prevent further injury. An emergency dentist in Quail Meadows will examine the mouth, focusing on potential soft tissue damage requiring stitches; signs of loose, displaced, or fractured teeth; and changes to the bite.

Following emergency dental care, it is important to follow up with your dentist for long-term treatment, if required. A dental emergency that results in pulp death, root problems, or displacement of permanent teeth will need to be monitored carefully by your dental care professional.

Preventing a Dental Emergency – Proper dental care can help to prevent a painful dental emergency. You can reduce the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and limiting the amount of sugar-filled and starch-heavy foods you eat. You can lower the likelihood of a dental emergency if you use scissors instead of your teeth to cut tape; avoid eating hard candy, popcorn kernels, and chewing ice; wear a mouth guard during sports activities; and have regular dental care by an affordable dentist in Quail Meadows.
