Coping With a Dental Emergency

Whatever the cause of your emergency, dealing with pain is normal and to be expected. We use various methods to identify the source of your pain including a thorough tooth examination, oral screening, and X-rays. Tooth pain can be caused by a bacterial infection of the tooth’s nerve. This may be the result of decay reaching deep into the tooth. Fortunately, the infection is easily remedied with a root canal treatment.

For many, the thought of undergoing a root canal is enough to cause some anxiety, but their fear is misplaced. A root canal treatment is comparable to getting a filling. The pain that is typically associated with the root canal is actually due to the infection that the root canal will treat.

Pain may also be related to trauma inflicted upon the tooth, such as a forceful impact. Occasionally, the damage to the tooth is too severe for repair, such as when a tooth has fractured below the bone level. In these cases, tooth extraction may be necessary. Though they may not be the solution you are hoping for, tooth extractions today are done with ease. The extraction site can even be repaired with a bone graft that will preserve the bone in your jaw. Doing so leaves you with excellent options for replacement, such as implants.

Although dental pain will likely lead you to believe there is a serious issue requiring immediate correction, you may be suffering from something relatively mild that will not require extreme or invasive treatments. Gum recession may cause the dentin found under your enamel to become exposed, uncovering nerve endings and causing you pain. Consuming sweets, hot or cold foods, and liquids, and sometimes even just breathing can all become extremely painful. Alleviating the pain from these exposed nerves is possible by sealing them with fluoride agents. A long-term solution might be to use gingival grafts.

Pain is an indicator that something has gone wrong. Your pain may be related to cavities, gingivitis, abscesses, or physical trauma. No matter the cause, your best solution is to contact your dentist, who will know how to relieve your suffering and how to resolve the issue that caused it in the first place.
