What Can Cause a Toothache or Mouth Pain?
There’s no one issue that causes a toothache or mouth pain. Many people instantly think of a cracked or broken tooth or a tooth knocked out as a dental emergency – and those are – but dental decay (cavities), an abscessed tooth, a loose filling, or a crown that’s come off also can be quite painful and need swift care. Even sinus pressure and tooth enamel worn thin by grinding the teeth might require an emergency appointment to relieve painful symptoms. Don’t wonder whether your problem is serious enough to qualify as an emergency; often, waiting to see if the problem resolves itself can lead to more serious damage. Our general dentist can treat accidental injuries and provide temporary restorations as needed. Just call our office to discuss your problem further.
What is a Root Canal?
When an injury such as a crack in a tooth or a large cavity damages the soft pulp of the tooth, it becomes infected or inflamed. The pulp contains blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves, and helps the root of the tooth grow when the tooth is developing.
A root canal is a procedure that can help save the tooth. The treatment involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the area, and then sealing it. While some people envision a painful process, a root canal is actually similar to getting a filling. Root canals do not cause pain; they eliminate it.
Our general dentist performs root canal treatment on adults as well as root canals on children under 12.
When to Get Emergency Dental Treatment
Naturally, the type of emergency treatment you need depends on the type of injury and the severity of pain. If it’s the weekend or after hours, if your symptoms or your child’s symptoms are severe, or if you’re unsure about the seriousness of the condition, it might best to seek treatment at your nearest emergency room or call 911. But if it’s during business hours, we’re here for you to answer questions and get care as swiftly as possible.
Call Advanced Dental Care of Florida today at (904) 638-7181 to request an emergency dental appointment in Mandarin.
How to Handle More Serious Problems
Although our general dentist can handle many dental emergencies, there are some conditions that require more immediate or specialized treatment.
You might need help from your primary-care physician, an oral surgeon or the emergency room if you or your child suffers from any of the following:
- Severe swelling of the face or gums
- Severe bleeding
- Sudden injuries to the face, head, teeth or jaw.
