Coping With a Dental Emergency
Whatever the cause of your emergency, you will likely be experiencing considerable pain; this is normal and to be expected. 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 near-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 is called for. Though they may not be the solution you are hoping for, tooth extractions today are done with ease. Further, 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 which will not require extreme or invasive treatments. For example, gum recession may cause the dentin found under your enamel to become exposed, in turn exposing 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 more importantly, how to resolve the issue that caused it in the first place.
