Knocked out teeth

When teeth are knocked out due to trauma, it is important to seek help from your Port St Lucie dentist as soon as possible. When teeth are displaced from their sockets, the nerve can be severed. If replaced quickly and stabilized, the tooth can revitalize and heal itself. Even if replaced quickly, the tooth may require root canal therapy in the future.

Dental x-rays should be taken to evaluate the bone and adjacent teeth for possible fractures. If bone is lost during trauma, it may be necessary for bone grafting and alternative replacement of missing teeth with implants, bridge or some type of removable prosthesis.

If you, a friend, or a family member accidently knocked out a tooth give us a call at (772) 380-4735 and we’ll get you in for an emergency dental care.

Toothaches

Tooth pain can be debilitating and it is important to act quickly to resolve the issue before serious infections occur. You can try managing the pain temporarily until you can be seen by your dentist, by using over the counter analgesics, such as Ibuprofen and Tylenol. Typical anesthetics, such as orajel or ambesol, can also be used for pain relief. Keep in mind that if using over the counter medications, you must use caution because many over the counter analgesics can increase risk of bleeding.

Toothaches can be caused by an infected tooth or the supporting bone and gums. It can also be caused by inflammation of the dental pulp, called pulpitis. It is necessary to have an evaluation by your dentist to determine the cause of the pain. Treatment will vary depending on the diagnosis.

Stop suffering from needless pain, find relief only from a trusted dentist. Call us at (772) 380-4735 for fast and effective dental care.

Broken Teeth

dental-emergencyBroken teeth can be caused by trauma or significant decay that has weakened the tooth structure to the point that it crumbles during normal use. Large restorations can lead to weakening of the tooth and possible fractures. The severity of the break and the condition of the remaining tooth will determine what procedures can be provided. With small fractures conservative treatment such as tooth colored fillings can be done to restore missing tooth structure.

Larger fractures may require additional procedures such as a build up with a crown. The tooth could fracture and be so compromised that the only options are root canal with crown or complete removal of the tooth.

If you notice or suspect that your tooth is fractured or broken, call your trusted dentist right away to avoid further dental problems. We will welcome your dental emergency any time, call us at (772) 380-4735 today.
