If you are not aware of the signs of a dental emergency, here are the various categories of dental emergencies:

Broken Tooth

Teeth may be very strong but this does not mean they are not susceptible to cracks and breaks. Teeth breakage is caused by a number of factors such as trauma, extreme dental decay or biting hard foods. Not all cracks are painful some are even painless, however if the crack elongates down to the root of the teeth, the pain levels can be abundant. Broken teeth are not only painful but the jagged edges may shred your lips and cheeks.

When having a cracked or broken tooth it is necessary to book an appointment with an emergency dentist as fast as possible, so as to reduce the pain levels and also avoid long term damage.

Tooth Infection

An abscessed tooth can be defined as a tooth infection between the tooth and the gum. Severe tooth decay and trauma are the major causes of tooth infection. It may have severe effects such as difficulty in swallowing food, difficulties when opening the mouth and also may result in swelling. Patients usually experience extreme discomfort and at times sores may develop on the gum line. Root canal treatment is necessary in order to alleviate the pain and prevent further spread of infection. If you are experiencing extreme pain its essential to visit Smiles on Chapel’s Emergency dentist immediately.
