Common Dental Emergencies
Lost Dental Fillings
Lost dental filling are fairly common. They can sometimes loosen and fall out, which may cause pain, inflammation, infection, and sensitivity. If the tooth dentin is exposed for a long period of time, a root canal may be necessary to save the tooth.
Dental trauma may be caused from a variety of reasons, including sports, work accidents, car accidents, and more. After physical trauma occurs to the tooth, it may become dislodged. A dislodged tooth can lead to acute bleeding. Fortunately, it’s possible to save the permanent tooth if you are able to visit our office immediately. Additional treatment may be necessary if the tooth cannot be reinserted into the socket.
Constant Tooth Ache
