Some Common Dental Emergencies That Require Immediate Attention


Broken Or Cracked Tooth –
In this case, the nerve of the tooth gets exposed. An exposed nerve is extremely sensitive to temperatures, especially to cold. The patients immediately start suffering from immense pain and worry. The diet schedule of the patients also gets disrupted.

Knocked Out Tooth – A knocked out tooth is caused when the patients suffer from any kind of accident or external injury. This again leaves the temperature sensitive nerve exposed, causing massive pain and swelling.

Loss of Filling – Fillings are materials used to fill the cavities of the teeth. In simple words, it covers the top of the damaged teeth. Sometimes, the fillings come out due to decay underneath its surface. The immediate effect of a lost filling is profuse bleeding and severe pain.

Gum Abscess – An abscess is a pocket of pus that develops in the inner portion of the mouth. It not only affects the tooth but also the areas surrounding it. Gum Abscess is a serious dental disease that has severe adverse effects on the teeth and must be dealt with by an expert same day dentist.
