If there is a pain that is difficult to bear, it is dental pain, so dental emergencies are so important, so you can go at any time to relieve that pain.
It could be said that everything that has to do with our oral health is of utmost urgency, since we must always have our mouth healthy but, there are several dental emergencies that are the ones that should be treated faster.
Next, we will show you the most common dental emergencies that can be found in a dental clinic. Read on for more information.
What are the most common types of dental emergencies?
Many of the dental problems you will read below are the most heard in our day to day but, in turn are also the most painful:
Tooth and gum pain
Tooth and gum pain is one of the most common dental problems. It can be caused by several things, including a deep cavity, infection, injury, or dental abscess. If you experience acute and constant pain, it is important to seek emergency dental care, as this type of pain makes it very difficult to chew properly.
Chipped or broken tooth
A chipped or broken tooth can be caused by a blow or fall, or simply by a cavity that has weakened the tooth. If the tooth is chipped or broken, it is important to seek dental care as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the fracture, the dentist can treat the problem with a crown, filling, or extraction. What should not be done under any circumstances is to wait until the tooth is broken in the event that we see that there is a small fracture, as this can lead to much more serious problems and sometimes very difficult to fix.
If you lose a tooth due to a blow or injury, it is important to seek immediate dental care. In some cases, the dentist may put the tooth back in place, as long as it has remained moist and in good condition. We recommend going to the dentist as soon as possible to see if there has been more damage to the gums or other parts of the mouth.
A dental infection can be caused by a deep cavity, injury, or dental abscess. Symptoms include swelling, pain, and fever. If left untreated, a dental infection can spread to other areas of the body, which can be potentially dangerous.In some cases we can see how the infection leaves the tooth in the form of blood
Problems with wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, usually grow between the ages of 17 and 25. If they do not have enough space to grow, they can cause pain and other dental problems such as moving other teeth, so orthodontics should be provided.
If you experience wisdom tooth pain, it is important to seek dental care to assess whether it is necessary to remove them. Many patients say that the pain of wisdom teeth is one of the most painful that can be experienced, however many other patients question this theory since there are people who do not notice at all that in their mouth wisdom teeth are coming out. What is usually done in many cases with wisdom teeth is to remove them.
