Sometimes, after facing an oral injury, you will need to seek immediate dental treatment to save a tooth or relieve pain. It is crucial to see a dentist for these services because any delay can result in permanent damage or costly, complicated treatment procedures down the road.
Do You Have Excruciating Oral Pain?
A toothache can sometimes be so unbearable that some people just take painkillers and ignore the problem. Unfortunately, painkillers only provide temporary relief, while a proper diagnosis provides you with better treatment options and avoids complications. With us by your side, we can help relieve you of pain and, more importantly, help identify and address the exact cause.
Are Your Teeth Fractured?
Despite what you may have heard, if you visit us with the pieces of your broken tooth/teeth immediately after the accident, we may still be able to save your teeth.
Do You Have a Foreign Object Stuck Between Your Teeth?
People get injured and could end up with foreign materials lodged between their teeth when they use their teeth to bite on objects instead of using the right tools. We can inspect the area closely with proper instruments and know precisely how to proceed without causing further damage. Do not force the foreign matter out on your own as it could exacerbate the pain, damage your teeth and gums, and even cause bleeding.
Think You Have an Infection?
Some people ignore seemingly minor oral problems because they believe they can still deal with the pain. If this occurs, we will examine the area and treat the infection after a consultation.
Do Bleeding Gums Bother You?
Some dental problems may wait a day or two before requiring attention, but it is best to seek treatment right away. If you suffer from bleeding gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue, we may have to stitch or cauterize the injury to stop the bleeding.
Did You Lose Fillings in Your Teeth?
We can assist you with all types of procedures and guidance, so you will feel and look better immediately after surgery. The earlier you get it fixed or replaced, the better you will look and feel.
