Many people will ignore mouth pain and assume that it will eventually go away. They may even put it off for a few days until the weekend when they are free. However, dental problems can cause serious effects on your health.
Here at Livonia Dental Care, we provide complete dental care to those in need. Whether you are suffering from a cracked tooth, lost crown, lost filling, or severe pain, just call Livonia Dental Care and get treatment from one of our gentle, caring dentists. We see regular as well as emergency patients. New patients are always welcome.
The most common dental emergencies are as follows:
Pain occurring in the teeth is an indication that the nerve is infected. A nerve can get infected from a cavity, trauma or from previous dental work. The dentist will be able to determine whether or not you need root canal treatment.
Sometimes large existing fillings in your mouth can weaken a tooth and cause the tooth to break. Trauma can also cause teeth to fracture. Call your dentist immediately if you fractured or cracked a tooth. Take over-the-counter pain medication to minimize discomfort, and use ice packs liberally to reduce swelling in your face. The more ice packs you use at the beginning, the better off you’ll feel later.
The appearance of a swollen face or gums is the sign of an infection. It is recommended to seek a dentist right away in case of a swollen face. Infections can lead to life-threating conditions. It is important to seek a dentist
The most common cause of jaw pain is bruxism. It occurs when you grind or clench together your teeth. Wearing a bite guard will help protect the jaw joint and the teeth. Another cause of jaw pain is eruption of wisdom teeth. Your dentist will determine if your wisdom teeth need to come out.
