What are various dental emergencies?

Most dental issues take a few hours or weeks to treat. But in case of a dental emergency, the teeth need to be treated immediately. A timely visit to the dentist can save your tooth, gums, or tissues and give you a new lease of life. Here are some of the most common reasons when you need emergency dental care services that you might come across:  

1. Toothaches

Toothaches can have different causes or origins such as trauma leading to painful cracks or fractures in the tooth. Bruxism or teeth-grinding, which often happens while asleep and can also cause toothaches or hypersensitivity. 

Dental decay that is left untreated and encroaches on the nerve can cause severe pain. Infection or local dental abscesses can trigger toothaches as well. Toothaches can often be treated by extraction or performing root canal therapy on the affected teeth.

2. Fractured Teeth caused by accidental injury or trauma

Injuries, fractured teeth can sometimes cause pain or discomfort. Sometimes can be a cosmetic concern if a front tooth is affected. Fractured teeth can be restored with a filling or a crown. 

When pain is involved, sometimes Root Canal Therapy is performed. In few instances, badly fractured teeth are considered non-restorable. That means the tooth cannot be fixed anymore. In such cases, the only solution is tooth extraction.

A dental implant, bridge, or removable prosthesis can are used to replace the missing tooth. 

3. Displaced or Luxated teeth caused by trauma 

Due to accidents or trauma teeth can get displaced or luxated. They can be treated by repositioning the tooth or teeth and splinting them to adjacent undamaged teeth. A wire or other bondable materials are preferred for this.

Follow-up appointments with a dentist are required to enhance the efficacy of the treatment.

4. Lost or Avulsed teeth caused by trauma. 

If the entire tooth including the root comes out of the socket, it should be manually replaced into the socket. This situation calls for emergency dental services.

If the tooth is replaced within sixty minutes and splinted, there is a decent chance for your tooth to be saved and restored. 

5. Severe infections

More severe infections with a dental origin lead to swelling or infection in the face, head, or neck. These infections can be treated with antibiotics, coupled with extraction or root canal therapy of the infected tooth. 

In some instances, Intravenous antibiotics with or without surgical drainage at the hospital will be necessary to treat the infection.
