What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency poses an immediate threat to your oral health. Understanding what problems require immediate care and what can wait until you can get an appointment will save you time, worry, and money. Here are some examples of emergencies.
Cracked Tooth – Minor cracks are probably better suited for a normal dental appointment, but if your crack is severe or if you are unsure, you should definitely seek emergency treatment. Depending on the crack, Dr. Rosenblatt will restore your tooth using a veneer or a dental crown to protect it from further damage. This will also restore the function of your tooth, so you can go back to eating without pain.
Broken Tooth – A broken tooth can be dangerous. It exposes the inner parts of your tooth and can lead to infection. Dr. Rosenblatt will fix a crown to cover the broken tooth and keep it from breaking apart further. If your break is too severe for a crown, you may need to have the tooth extracted. A single tooth dental implant will restore the look and function of your smile.
Missing Tooth – Time is the enemy when your tooth has been knocked out. You need to find the tooth and get in to see Dr. Rosenblatt as soon as you can. Clean the tooth with warm water, and submerge it in a cup of milk to keep it viable. This way, Dr. Rosenblatt will have a better chance of reinserting your tooth successfully.
Abscess – An abscess is a pocket of infection that develops under your gums at your tooth root. You will feel pressure and pain near the area. Abscesses are a danger to your whole mouth, as the infection can spread to other teeth and wreak havoc on the underlying bone. Call us immediately to get your abscess drained and the infection that caused it taken care of. Root canal therapy is another common way of removing an abscess.
