This is one of the most painful types of emergency. Please give us a call as soon as possible, as we do not wish for you to get an infection. Home remedies include rinsing out your mouth with warm salt water and taking over-the-counter medication while we work to get you in. If there is swelling, put an ice pack on the affected area.
Wisdom teeth can be painful, whether they are erupting or impacted. This pain could come about frequently or spontaneously. A lot of times, the gums around the wisdom teeth will get infected due to a patient’s inability to clean all the way into the back of the mouth. This is a condition called pericoronitis. If you have wisdom teeth pain, please come in ASAP to see us so that we can talk about removal options and help preserve the surrounding teeth. In the meantime, you can take over-the-counter pain medication to manage your discomfort. We have CT SCAN to take right X-Rays and our doctors and Oral Surgeon can help you relieve wisdom tooth pain or other emergency dental care.
Hopefully, you did not swallow it. If you that, that is okay. Try to keep the crown, veneer or filling and bring it in with you. Please call us as soon as possible so that we can get you in.
In the meantime, sensitivity may persist, especially to the cold or currents of air. You may want to use clove oil or get a temporary filling material from a pharmacy and follow the included instructions for placement.
There are a number of reasons why a patient could have a dental infection. Any type of infection can have a detrimental effect not only to the surrounding area but to your overall health as well. Abscessed teeth or gum swelling should be treated with antibiotics and a treatment solution from our dentists ASAP. Do not put this off. If the swelling gets too close to your eye or throat, please quickly get yourself to an emergency room for immediate care.
Dentures and partials are oftentimes made of a material called acrylic, which can sometimes crack or break when being used and handled. If this happens, it is unfortunate. We would advise that you call us immediately so we can get you in and fix the crack or breakage. Oftentimes, we will need to find out why this happened, so keep track of what you were eating or how it broke so that we can avoid this sort of situation in the future.
Toothaches can be the symptom of a lot of different issues. Please call us immediately so that we can get you in to the office or have a virtual consultation with our doctor. Depending on where you are having pain, the best way to alleviate the discomfort is to take over-the-counter pain medications and rinse out with warm salt water. We can stop painful decay or infection and preserve your natural teeth. When teeth are extremely damaged or decayed an extraction is sometimes necessary.
We are conveniently located on Kennedy Blvd in Taffaro Plaza and next to Light Rail Station.
