Tooth Pain

Sudden pain in one or multiple teeth is, unfortunately, never a good sign. Whether your pain is dull, sharp or throbbing, we urge you to contact our office immediately to discuss your discomfort. Tooth pain is not an issue that will “go away in a few days,” and requires immediate attention to get to the root of the problem.

Loose Tooth

For children, loose teeth are often the sign of their baby teeth making way for their permanent teeth to come in. As adults, however, teeth should never loosen. This can be indicative of a number of issues, especially gum disease. Avoid playing with or dislodging a loose tooth any further, and contact us before it has a chance to fall out.

Broken Tooth

Broken teeth are painful, there’s no doubt about it. Dental trauma comes when we least expect it, and broken teeth need to be addressed as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to not only the affected tooth, but those surrounding it as well. 

Avulsed / Knocked Out Tooth

Like broken teeth, teeth that were lost as a result of trauma need immediate attention. If you or someone you know has had a tooth knocked out, and you still have it, it’s recommended that you save it and bring it with you to your appointment. There is a chance that the tooth can be saved, but only if you act quickly.

Emergency Crowns

While dental crowns are an amazing way to repair your smile, they require the same level of care as a natural tooth does. As such, they’re also subject to the same damage, too. If a crown is broken, damaged or lost, contact us immediately. There’s a chance it can be quickly repaired, or a temporary restoration can be made until you can receive a new permanent crown.

Damaged or Inflamed Gums

Damaged or inflamed gums are often a sign of gum disease, a condition that develops from an abundance of bacteria that has collected in the mouth. When left untreated, gum disease can develop into multiple worsening stages that may eventually become incurable. We check for signs of gum disease at every routine visit, but you should call us immediately if you suspect you may be suffering from it.
