Our Durham dentists are here to address a long list of dental emergencies, including:
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth not only looks and feels unpleasant, it can also adversely impact your total health. The American Association of Endodontists recommends seeing a dentist within 30 minutes of the injury to help save the tooth and prevent infection.
Teeth may be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break. or crack. You cannot treat a broken tooth at home - doing so could result in an infection that could call for a root canal.
Broken Dental Filling
If your dental filling breaks, don't delay in scheduling an appointment for urgent dental care immediately. The longer treatment is delayed, the more severe the fracture can become, requiring more invasive treatment to fix.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of your entire mouth, including your healthy teeth and gums. However, if a dental abscess is treated immediately, this type of infection is easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth.
After treatment, we will likely prescribe an antibiotic to completely heal your dental infection and prevent further complications.
Does it hurt to chew, when you drink cold liquids, or when air touches your tooth?
If you are suffering with persistent toothache or other mouth pain, call O2 Dental Group of Durham to schedule an emergency dental exam. During your appointment, our dental team will x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your pain.
