Accidents can happen to anyone, but while you may know what to do when an injury occurs to your extremities, often times an injury or ache in our face or mouths can leave us in a panic on how to handle the situations. Other times dire situations are ignored as being less than the need for immediate care they truly are. What exactly constitutes a dental emergency, and what is one to do in the wake of an injury to their teeth? In many cases, it may be more or less than you may realize. From objects trapped in between your teeth, mild to severe toothaches, and even complications with dental work are all types of dental emergencies. If you are experiencing oral pain or have suffered any level of injury to the face or jaw, you should not hesitate to contact your local East Hartford dental office
at the Contemporary General Dentistry for the care you need.
Toothaches East Hartford
Toothaches are a pain which many of us choose to ignore as a minor annoyance in our lives, but the truth is that no matter what level of pain you are coping with, all toothaches are a dental emergency. A dental injury such as a chipped or cracked tooth from a physical accident creates a flaw in the armor of your teeth, making the injury prone to infection without care from your trusted East Hartford dental office
. If you have not experienced a physical injury, a toothache can still be a cause for a dental emergency, as any toothache without proper care can lead to a root canal infection. Root canals which our not treated promptly can result in tooth loss. Toothaches can also be a sign of a loose or dislodged crown or dental cap that should be treated by a dentist as soon as possible.
Oral pains are not the only type of emergencies which require the immediate attention of your professional East Hartford dental office
. Believe it or not food that has become trapped between your teeth can be just as important and hazardous to your health as a facial injury. Wisdom teeth which grow improperly into place are prone to this problem. Patients should attempt to dislodge the object with dental floss if possible, and never with anything other than dentist approved cleaning devices.
Dental emergencies happen to everyone, and when it comes to these of anxiety and panic, patients can count on the welcoming and knowledgeable staff of their neighborhood East Hartford dental office
to listen when they need it most. Our team at the Contemporary General Dentistry has been treating oral health problems just like yours for over fifteen years. When you need attentive and professional care in a dental emergency, you can trust the fully licensed and professionally trained staff of the Contemporary General Dentistry to return your smile to perfect health.
