Types of Dental Emergencies in Boca Raton, FL
A dental emergency is a dental situation that occurs and requires immediate treatment. Some of the most common dental emergencies that are treated at Ericsson Dental include:
- An Avulsed Tooth – An avulsed tooth is a tooth that has been knocked out of the mouth. This type of dental emergency requires immediate attention. You don’t only have to worry about a gap in your smile but also damage to the nerves, tissue, and blood vessels that surround the tooth. Replacing the tooth as quickly as possible increases the odds that the tissue around the tooth will regrow to support the tooth.
- A Lost Filling or Crown – Eating hard candy, ice, or any other hard food can cause a filling or crown to separate. Additionally simply brushing or flossing your teeth can loosen a crown or filling. A crown or filling is there for a reason and when one falls out it can leave the exposed tooth feeling extremely sensitive and painful. If you experience a lost crown or filling you will want to contact an emergency dentist immediately to help reduce the pain and the likelihood of further damage.
- A Cracked or Broken Tooth – The most common causes of a broken or cracked tooth are trauma, bitting, or grinding your teeth. An emergency dentist can help you assess the situation and take corrective action before the cracked tooth becomes too bad.
- A Loose Tooth – The most common cause of a loose tooth is decay. Over time, not taking care of your teeth can result in some of them becoming loose. While oral hygiene is a good way to combat a loose tooth, an emergency dentist could help prevent the tooth from falling out entirely.
