Toronto Dental Emergencies
Knocked Out Tooth
If you or a family member is suffering from a knocked out tooth locate it as quickly as possible. Be sure to pick the tooth up by the crown and not the roots. The roots will have nerves and tissue connected.
You want to be careful not to disturb the roots. Of course if the tooth is dirty do your best to clean it off. If you can try to put it back into the socket and head to your Yorkville dentist immediately.
A dull ache is something you should never ignore. Dr. Judy Sturm & Dr. Janice Low explain that toothaches are trying to tell you something.
When you take care of the issue as quickly as possible you will most likely only need a small filling. However, if you don’t treat your decay the problem is only going to get worse.
Tooth Damage and Dental Emergencies
Tooth damage means that the blood vessels that carry the nutrients to your teeth and gums aren’t doing their job. In other words there is no blood flow to the tooth.
Chips, cracks and other types of damage, along with a tooth that is dislodged will eventually cause the tooth to die.
According to Dr. Judy Sturm and Dr. Janice Low you should see your dentist ASAP if you feel that:
- The tooth is compromised
- Your tooth pain is excruciating
- You have chills and fever follow dental emergencies
- Severe jaw pain
- Excessive and continuous bleeding
