Generally speaking, anytime you are dealing with a loose tooth or a knocked-out tooth, it is time to consult with a dentist right away. Although a missing filling or a chipped tooth can be uncomfortable and aesthetically unappealing, most times these instances shouldn’t necessitate a visit to the emergency room (although these situations should be treated sooner rather than later). During instances of a more alarming nature, patients in the Winnipeg area can rely on Bronstein Family Dental for swift dental treatment and advice when it matters most. We are your emergency dentist in Winnipeg.
Not all dental issues involving oral discomfort require immediate assessment; however, excessive bleeding or severe pain in your gums and teeth should be considered a dental emergency. Whether the issue is a result of trauma or a lingering issue resulting in physical symptoms that can no longer be ignored, rest assured Bronstein Family Dental in Winnipeg can help. We are your source for efficient emergency solutions that can help try and save the tooth (or teeth) in question.
Pain of any degree is never a good sign, and you shouldn’t have to live with recurring oral discomfort on a day-to-day basis. Tooth pain most often stems from exposed or irritated nerves. When disease takes hold at the root of the tooth, and the pulp is infiltrated with bacteria, your mouth is exposed to any number of serious issues. Exposed dentine, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, and sudden localized overnight pain are just some of the more noticeable symptoms. If left untreated, these conditions can lead to more severe situations involving inflammation of the gums, facial swelling, and fever. If you find yourself suffering from any of the above-mentioned indicators, we advise getting in touch with our office immediately to determine the level of threat the condition poses to your overall well-being.
Save the Tooth
Whether you lead an active lifestyle or you’ve taken a spill, dental trauma is never a pleasant situation to deal with. Injuries to the hard dental tissues and pulp including fractures, lacerations, loosened and displaced teeth, or an avulsed tooth (when the tooth is knocked out of the socket completely) should never be ignored. Once an adult tooth comes out of the mouth, you have a limited window to place it back successfully. Avoid touching the tooth’s roots and keep it moist using milk or water. You can also maintain the tooth in question by either placing it back into the mouth between the cheek and gum or by inserting it back into its original socket. Unless the tooth is broken into pieces, it’s advisable to try and save the tooth in question whenever possible.
