When do you need emergency dental treatment?
A dental emergency is a serious oral health condition that requires and necessitates immediate dental treatment. Most dental problems are chronic, and they can eventually become dental emergencies if left untreated. One may argue that all dental problems are inherently urgent in nature because they worsen with time. However, when it comes to dental emergencies, you need to address the problem within hours to prevent severe, lifelong complications, such as the loss of teeth and serious infections.
One of the best examples of a dental emergency is a knocked-out tooth. When your tooth is knocked out of the socket completely, you have about an hour to reach the emergency dentist. If the tooth is well-preserved, the emergency dentist can potentially reattach the severed tooth. But if you delay the treatment or don’t handle the situation properly, you will lose the tooth completely, and you’ll need a dental replacement treatment, such as dental implants or dental bridges.
The following are some signs indicating you need an emergency dental treatment:
- Loose teeth
- Knocked-out teeth
- Severe toothaches
- Damaged teeth
- Bleeding gums
- Swollen gums
- Signs of a dental abscess
- Pus-filled cyst in the mouth
- Numbness of the tooth
- Metallic taste in the mouth
What is an emergency root canal treatment?
An emergency root canal treatment is a procedure wherein the dentist drills an access hole into your affected tooth, removes all the infected soft tissues, pulp tissues, and nerves, and disinfects the pulp chamber. After removing and vacating the components of the root canal, the emergency dentist places dental cement and fillings. After healing, a dental crown is attached over the tooth to protect it from damage. This is an emergency procedure because delaying a root canal treatment may lead to the infection spreading to the root or bloodstream, which can have severe complications.
