No one wants to think that they will ever have a dental emergency. Dental emergencies are scary. Unfortunately they can happen to anyone, even to the most cautious and safe conscious people. If you have a dental emergency, you will need to see a professional like our local Morristown dentist at Attentive Dental Care right away.
Some common dental emergencies include: a knocked out tooth (avulsed tooth), a lost filling or crown, cracked or broken teeth or loose/dislodged teeth. If a tooth is knocked out, tissues, nerves and blood vessels become damaged. If the tooth is placed back into its socket within an hour, it is possible to save it because there is still a chance that the tissues will grow to support the tooth again. Sometimes a filling or crown can become loose. This generally happens because a tooth is decaying. The decay is what causes it to no longer fit because decay causes changes in its shape. If the crown falls out and is out of the mouth for a long period of time, the teeth might shift and or become more damaged. Cracked or broken teeth are often caused by trauma, grinding or biting. If the crack extends to the root, the patient will experience extreme pain. Teeth can be loosened or dislodged from its socket due to decay or by trauma. It is possible to save them but it needs to be taken care of by the dentist right away. Root canal therapy may be necessary for teeth that are still in the mouth and are attached to the nerves and blood vessels. If any of the previous situations occur, it is crucial that you go to the dentist immediately. This is why it’s very important to choose a dental practice that handles dental emergencies.
