Regular dental visits are essential for maintaining your overall health. But did you know that some dental visits are for dental emergencies? These emergencies include accidents, injuries, unexplainable pain in your mouth, and other reasons. Symptoms such as severe pain, losing your teeth, loosened teeth, infection, or sudden bleeding from the mouth should not be overlooked for long.
Visit us immediately if you experience the above-listed symptoms. We will look into your condition and perform a suitable treatment.
Some toothaches are bearable, while others are not. The latter may come up as a red flag and your body’s way to tell you that something is wrong with your dental health. If you experience excruciating pain in your teeth, visit us for consultation and treatment. In the meantime, you can relieve pain with a cold compress.
Occasional gum irritation is not considered a dental emergency. But if the bleeding from your gums doesn’t stop after some time and causes pain and swelling, know that it is a dental emergency. We will carry out your dental examination and check the cause of the problem.
Exposed nerves may lead to pain beyond measure. And if you do not visit us in time, the condition will worsen. Exposed nerves are a sign you may be suffering from nerve damage or infection. We will examine the condition and check its severity to perform the right treatment.
Knocked-out teeth could result from falling, accidents, and sports injuries. Take quick action and try to preserve your teeth. Do not touch the root of your teeth while picking them up. Visit us and bring the knocked-out tooth along, keeping it in a glass of milk. Always wear a mouthguard to prevent injuries while engaging in sports.
A dental abscess is a potentially life-threatening condition wherein a pocket of pus in your teeth has formed, leading to severe infection. It may cause tooth sensitivity to hot and cold food, fever, toothache, swelling in the face, tender lymph nodes in the neck, or a blister-like bump on your gums. In all these cases, an emergency visit to our clinic is a must.
You may injure your gums or other soft parts of your mouth while chewing food, talking, or biting on any hard object. Soft tissue injuries lead to pain and bleeding. Visit us to get the wound treated.
