When will you need a tooth extraction & will it hurt?

There are several reasons that can lead to your tooth being extracted which include: tooth infection, tooth decay, not visiting a dentist on a regular basis, making room for permanent teeth, to prepare for braces, and to remove broken or badly damaged teeth.

Once a dentist determines that a tooth needs to be removed/extracted, a plan will be created in order to map out the best way to remove the tooth without affecting any other area in your month. The procedure is usually painless based on the dentist numbing the area in the month around the extraction....

How long does it take to ease the pain after a root canal procedure?

A root canal performed by a dentist cleans out the inside of the tooth and seals it from bacteria so your body can fight the infection and heal. You can compare the healing process to removing a splinter from an infected finger so the finger can heal.

That infected area of the jaw below a tooth can be sore up to a year after a root canal is performed. One more reason your tooth may be hurting is that root canals are only 80-90% successful within the first 5 years....

How often do fillings need to be replaced?

Here are some good reasons that will signal an alarm for you to get your fillings replaced: • Signs of Decay: On a closer inspection of your afflicted area, signs of decay become more visible and such should make you visit our office immediately. Decay can cause further damage if not treated appropriately.

As bacteria finds a loophole to enter your oral system it would eventually increase and multiply at great pace before it can be stopped. • Chipping or Cracking: Though they may not pose a serious nature to many, but when fillings tend to crack or chip then its best they are replaced....

If Dry Mouth Causes Major Tooth Decay, Should I Get My Teeth Pulled?

A lot of medicines have dry mouth as a side effect. as you know, dry mouth really increases your cavity risk. Here is how I would look at this- if the cavities are not too big/deep, then I would fix them.

If the cavities get deep into the tooth or under the gums to the bone level, then fixing even with a root canal + crowns becomes difficult. A full set of dentures with dry mouth can also have problems....

Common Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency is often something that most people are unprepared for. When faced with an unexpected dental situation, it’s important to understand the most common dental emergencies and what you can do at home before you see an emergency dentist. Once your tooth pain is at a manageable level, the next step is finding a dentist near you that is available to take care of your emergency using a trusted resource like Emergency Dental Service.

tooth extraction

Tooth Extraction

When a tooth has damage, is broken, or has decay most dentists will try to fix the tooth with the normal dental crown or filling. There are times when the normal preventive maintenance will not repair a tooth and the tooth has too much damage to be repaired and therefore has to be extracted. The extraction will remove the tooth from its socket in the bone.

Abscess Tooth

Abscess Tooth

An abscessed tooth is an infection that has occurred on or around the gums in the month. Usually a dental abscess will form between the gum and tooth or sometimes near the root of the tooth. The infection is treatable and can take up to 2 weeks to heal once seen by a medical professional. Tooth abscess will occur inside the tooth when the tooth’s nerve starts dying or is dead.

chipped tooth

Chipped Tooth

A chipped or broken tooth can be fixed very quickly as long as you see an emergency dentist immediately. Once you have an appointment secured, make sure to bring in the broken piece of your tooth with you (if you can’t find it then a partial can be put in its place). Most dentist recommend to keep the tooth in warm milk or water until you get to their office.

A tooth infection can become serious if left untreated and not given immediate attention. Most infections can spread to other teeth and other areas of the body over time. Typically the tooth infection is caused by an untreated cavity, injury to an area of the tooth or previous dental work. The most common term used to describe a tooth infection is an abscessed tooth and can usually cause pain while chewing or irritate the gums surrounding the infected tooth.

To treat a tooth infection, you will need to seek the help of a medical professional and he/she will usually run lab tests and imaging to accurately diagnosis the problem. If your pain from a tooth infection occurs during the weekend or late at night, use an online resource such as Emergency Dental Service to find an emergency dentist that is open near you immediately.

Tooth Extraction

When a tooth has been damaged badly enough some dentist recommend moving forward with a dental procedure called a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is the removal of a damaged tooth from the socket in the bone. Chipped, fractured, or a severely decayed tooth are usually extracted if they cannot be repaired and healed naturally.

An emergency tooth extraction is usually performed when an unexpected injury to the month has affected one or several teeth. Sports injuries & physical fights are the number 1 & 2 causes for an emergency tooth extraction.  When faced with an emergency that requires immediate emergency dental attention, use valid online resources to find local emergency dentists.

A dental crown procedure is the covering of an existing tooth with porcelain, ceramic or stainless steel. The main reasons most dentist recommend a dental crown are: you have a really extreme discoloration in a tooth, a tooth is super weak and needs support to hold it together, or you want to make your teeth look better for cosmetic reasons.

There are thousands of emergency rooms located throughout the United States but most do not specialize in urgent dental care or emergency dental procedures. Emergency rooms will accept patients with dental emergencies but will only issue perceptions to ease the pain and then refer you to a dentist. You will have to find an urgent care dentist or clinic that is setup specifically as a dental emergency room.

Tooth Abscess

digital image of tooth with abscess

One of the human body’s ways of protecting itself from bacteria & infection is by forming an abscess around the infection. Through a tooth abscess, the body prevents the infection in or around that tooth from spreading to other areas of the body. An abscessed tooth usually takes a couple of weeks to heal and it is highly recommend to see a dentist to get an evaluation of what is causing the tooth infection. Sometimes the tooth abscess can be very painful and swollen and in many cases need immediate emergency attention. Emergency dentists specialize in treating pain from a tooth abscess and will evaluate the root cause of the infection during your emergency walk-in visit.
