It can be stressful to differentiate between a dental problem that needs emergency treatment and routine care. While tooth pain is always uncomfortable to deal with, should you wait to schedule an appointment with Poplar Dental, or should you contact an emergency dentist straight away?
Patients must know whom to contact in case of a dental emergency. Our skilled dentist near you offers 24-hour emergency dental services for your needs. Here’s a closer look at some common emergency dental problems that may occur unexpectedly:
Advanced gum disease attacks the bone and soft tissue surrounding tooth roots and causes inflammation, pus and bleeding in the oral cavity. You may require gum surgery or laser treatment to correct the problem. Regular exams and cleanings can help reveal the early stages of gum disease before it transforms into a complex problem.
Excruciating toothache is different from mild to moderate tooth pain. Dull toothache can be treated by rinsing with warm saltwater or consuming over-the-counter medication. A severe toothache may be triggered due to untreated dental abscesses (pus-filled swelling), extensive decay that has infected the pulp and nerves, impacted wisdom tooth or dental trauma.
If you are struggling with an excruciating toothache, please contact Dr. Perry for guidance and treatment. We will start intervention by providing instructions over the phone.
Impacted teeth, blocked salivary glands, or infection in the bone may cause swelling or pain in the jaw. We may provide suitable treatment after first diagnosing the cause of the issue.
You should first contact Dr. Perry for timely assistance. In the meanwhile, you can consider:
