Hazards of Delayed Treatment of a Dental Emergency

Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency is trauma to the teeth or gums that requires immediate assistance to prevent future damage. Toothaches are among the most common dental emergencies because the pain is a classic side effect of several adverse conditions. While a cold compress and over-the-counter pain medications can temporarily relieve the discomfort, you should still see a dentist in Sarasota right away. Most dentists provide emergency dental care or you can find a nearby emergency dentist to treat you. Whatever you do, do not delay treatment.

Dental Trauma

Dental trauma is a common occurrence. Children are affected the most, with a substantial number suffering damage to their permanent teeth before age thirteen. Injuries to the teeth and mouth include fractures and knocked-out or loosened teeth.

You must get help quickly in a dental emergency to minimize damage and prevent further injury. An emergency dentist in Sarasota will check for soft tissue damage that requires sutures, disturbances in the bite, and loose, dislodged, or broken teeth.

A dental emergency that causes death of the tooth’s pulp, root problems, or knocked-out permanent teeth will need to be monitored carefully by your dentist following the emergency dental care.

Dental Pain – Many things can cause dental pain, including non-dental problems, such as migraine headaches, sinusitis, myofascial inflammation, and TMJ. An affordable dentist in Sarasota will be able to identify the source of your dental pain, which could be caused by the following:

  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth abscess
  • Pulp inflammation
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Dislodged teeth
  • Lost fillings and crowns
  • Broken braces

Avoiding a Dental Emergency – Youcan avoid a dental emergency by following a proper dental care regimen. Brushing twice a day, flossing once daily, and avoiding sugary and starch-laden foods will reduce the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease. To lower the chances of having a dental emergency, wear a mouth guard when participating in sports activities; use scissors to cut tape—not your teeth; avoid eating popcorn kernels, hard candies, and crunching on ice. And make sure you have regular dental care by an affordable dentist in Sarasota.
