Dental emergencies can be frightening and painful. It is important to know how to respond to any dental emergency or injuries, such as a knocked-out tooth, broken tooth, chipped or fractured teeth, or soft tissue injury of the mouth. In such cases, it is essential to seek immediate medical care from a qualified oral surgeon. Knowing how to handle different types of dental emergencies can help you get through these situations quickly and safely.
Emergency Dental Services for Fractures, Injuries, Luxation, Avulsion, Infection, and Abscess.
When a dental emergency strikes, it can be a stressful and painful experience. At Riverside Oral Surgery, we understand the urgency of such situations and offer prompt and effective treatment for dental fractures, injuries, luxation, and avulsion.
A dental fracture can occur due to trauma or injury to the tooth. It can range from minor chips and cracks to more severe damage that exposes the tooth’s pulp. Our experienced dentists can assess the extent of the fracture and recommend the most appropriate treatment, which may include dental bonding, a dental crown, or a root canal.
Dental injuries can result from accidents, falls, or sports-related incidents. These can cause damage to the teeth, gums, or jaws, leading to bleeding, swelling, or pain. Our team is equipped to handle a range of dental injuries, from simple cuts and bruises to more complex trauma that requires immediate attention.
Luxation occurs when a tooth is displaced or pushed out of its socket due to an impact or injury. Depending on the severity of the displacement, our dentists may be able to reposition the tooth or recommend additional treatment, such as a splint or root canal.
Avulsion is a dental emergency that occurs when a tooth is completely knocked out of its socket. In such cases, it is essential to seek immediate dental care to increase the chances of re-implantation. Our team is trained to handle dental avulsion and can provide the necessary treatment to preserve the tooth and prevent further damage.
Infections in the oral cavity can result from various sources like untreated cavities, gum disease, or mouth and teeth trauma. Prompt treatment is crucial to prevent complications. Our team will assess the infection, identify the source, and provide appropriate treatment. Early intervention prevents damage to teeth, gums, and overall wellbeing.
An abscess is a bacterial infection that forms a pocket of pus. It typically occurs near a tooth’s root, causing intense pain, swelling, and fever. If untreated, the infection may spread, becoming life-threatening. Visit an oral surgeon promptly if you experience symptoms such as a persistent toothache, swollen gums, or bad breath. Our team will assess the infection’s severity and recommend treatment, which may involve draining, antibiotics, root canal, or tooth extraction.
