Toothaches Require Professional Dental Help
Toothaches can cause crippling pain. They typically do not disappear without the intervention of a dental professional. Toothaches are caused by damage or decay that has entered a tooth’s inner chamber where sensitive nerves are located. Damage to a tooth’s pulp can lead to infection which endangers adjacent teeth. Infection can also access the blood stream and spread throughout the body, causing serious health conditions.
Often, root canal therapy is performed to relieve toothaches and prevent the need of extraction. Root canal therapy removes the infected pulp and allows a tooth to continue normal function once it has been capped with a protective crown.
Restore Previous Dental Work Immediately
Fillings are sometimes weakened over time and affected by temperature changes that cause cracks or chips. Crowns can also fail when they slip out of place due to slight changes in teeth and oral tissues. Previous dental work that becomes compromised leaves teeth vulnerable to infection and further damage. Contact All Care Dental immediately to repair or replace previous dental work.
Emergency Treatment for Dislodged Teeth
Avulsed or dislodged teeth often result after an accident. If pieces of the tooth remain inside the tooth socket, it can lead to infection. It is imperative that you seek immediate professional help.
If you are bleeding, apply pressure to help stop it. An icepack can also minimize swelling while you wait to see a dentist.
Sometimes a tooth that has been knocked clean from the smile are successfully reintegrated into the socket if you receive immediate dental treatment. While waiting to see the dentist, here’s what you should do:
- Hold the tooth by the crown and gently rinse with warm water.
- Reinsert the tooth back into the socket or safely tuck it inside the cheek.
- If a child is involved or the person cannot keep the tooth inside the mouth, place it in a cup of milk or saliva.
Include Dental Products in Your First Aid Kit
Including dental items in a first aid kit can provide some relief until you are seen by a dentist. Consider adding these items:
- Orajel for topical relief
- Oral pain relievers
- Over the counter dental adhesion to reattach crowns
- Ice pack
