What Emergencies Require This Dentistry?
Dental emergencies are typically situations where you need to seek immediate care to save a tooth or free yourself from ongoing pain. Any delays in treatment may cause permanent damage to your smile and increase the likelihood of infection. Typical situations that may require an emergency dental visit include a broken tooth, a filling or crown that has fallen out or broken loose, and excruciating dental pain. In any of these cases, Dr. Anuya Diwan, Dr. James G. Case, and his assistants can expertly relieve the pain and restore your dental health.
Fractured Teeth and Treatment Options
Fractured teeth can be the result of a car accident, a physical altercation, or even a simple fall. Whatever the reason, you’ll want to have the teeth restored as quickly as possible. Tooth fractures can range from minor in scope (involving only a chipping of your enamel) to more serious fractures. The most serious fractures expose both the dentin and the pulp tissue and need treatment as soon as possible. Fractures like these can displace the tooth, causing it to become loose and damage your gums, making them bleed. When these instances arise, our team may decide to use a tooth splint that will bond the damaged tooth to adjacent ones, allowing the gums to heal. A root canal may be needed, as well. Alternatively, an extraction may be required if the tooth is unable to be repaired, in which case a temporary tooth will be fitted in until further plans can be made.
Extreme tooth infections can cause great pain and require immediate treatment. Whether this involves filling a cavity, performing a root canal, or undergoing another needed procedures, the sooner you come to see us, the better. Most infections start out as small irritants and can be diagnosed by the health of your gums. Without treatment, you’ll risk further gum disease and even more pain. We can prescribe antibiotics, and give scaling and root planing treatments that will remove bacteria from your teeth and discourage the further buildup of tartar and plaque.
Lost Filling or Crown
Loose fillings or crowns can become a real problem when you try to go about your day-to-day schedule. They’ll not only irritate your mouth, but they can open up your teeth to infections and decay. If you experience a loose crown, try to remove any debris under it, if possible, before setting the crown back on the tooth. Even if you’re able to do this, it’s best to see a qualified dentist immediately to provide a permanent fix to the problem. At the office of James G. Case, DDS, we excel at restoring fillings and crowns and ensuring your comfort during the process. Contact us today!
