In most cases, dental emergencies develop as a result of two common scenarios. The first is unexpected accidents, which can lead to either fractured or even completely knocked-out teeth. The other common case is the “toothache,” which generally occurs as a result of decay or an infection inside the tooth due to poor oral hygiene. At Coco Dental Studio, we treat both of these issues as well as teach patients the best ways to manage these symptoms prior to a visit to our dental office.
The good news is that a majority of dental emergencies can be avoided by keeping a few habits in mind.
Every dental emergency is unique, which is why it’s so important that you come in the moment that you notice significant tooth pain or experience oral trauma. In some cases, antibiotics are prescribed to treat infection inside the tooth, while other cases require more extensive care like root canal therapy and a crown. When you visit Coco Dental Studio, you can expect a highly personalized approach to your treatment planning and follow-up care. What’s most important is that you get to our dental office so we can get you out of pain and restore your oral health.
Root canal therapy is designed to save teeth, preventing the need for an extraction. However, if you notice pain and swelling in your tooth, it typically means that decay has reached the vulnerable tissue inside your tooth and developed an infection, which is a dental emergency. The last thing you should do is put off treatment as it could result in loss of the tooth completely. Our office will take every step to ensure your comfort and get you out of pain as soon as possible.
If your tooth is in severe pain, whether it be from extensive decay or forced trauma, the damage could require the need for an extraction. Since neighboring teeth could be put at risk of developing decay and damaged as well, the affected tooth should be promptly removed. Our office treats severe tooth pain as a dental emergency, especially considering its close proximity to the brain and other vulnerable oral structures. We’ll make sure that your comfort is accounted for during every step of treatment and discuss your tooth replacement options during your appointment.
