Common Dental Emergencies
There are a number of dental issues that can arise unexpectedly and require early treatment for your comfort and state of mind.
Acute tooth pain is one of the most common dental emergencies. Dental sensitivity and discomfort can occur due to various factors, including decay, infection, cavity, and periodontal disease. Your emergency dentist can perform a thorough examination to assess your teeth and gums, and recommend an appropriate treatment. For decay and cavities we can provide dental fillings in tooth-colored composite or amalgam to suit your needs. If you are suffering from infection inside the tooth, your dentist may perform a root canal treatment. We can often provide same-day restorations, allowing you to undergo root canal therapy and receive your dental crown in one appointment, avoiding the need for temporaries and multiple office visits. In cases where a tooth cannot be salvaged, we can perform a gentle extraction to protect your oral health.
Chipped or Cracked Tooth
Your tooth may chip or crack due to biting too hard, trying rip open packages or bottle tops with your teeth, or due to injury or trauma to the face. Depending on your needs, a chipped or cracked tooth can be addressed with cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers or dental bonding. If more significant damage has occurred, we may provide a same-day crown to protect your tooth.
Knocked Out Tooth
If a tooth gets knocked out die to trauma to the face, whether caused by an accident or playing sports, you should try to retrieve the tooth and visit our office as soon as possible. In some cases, a knocked out tooth can be successfully placed back in the socket, but only if you see a dentist as soon as possible. Do not touch the roots of the tooth, but ensure that it remains moist by placing it in water or milk. Dr. McGibony & Associates also offers sports dentistry options, including custom-made mouth guards to prevent such injuries from occurring and protecting your teeth in the future.
