red emergency signWhen it comes to dental emergencies, swift action is often crucial. Specific injuries to your teeth or gums can escalate, causing additional harm. Urgently contacting our dentist or heading to the emergency room for prompt treatment is essential in addressing a dental emergency. Timely intervention is key to preventing further complications and ensuring effective care for your dental well-being. Some of the common things that count for an emergency dental surgery include:

Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic injuries to your teeth, such as during sports, may require emergency dental surgery. If a tooth tooth is knocked off its socket or severely fractured, you must seek immediate surgical intervention. Such issues can pose severe problems to your general oral health. The fragments of the teeth can injure your oral structures and cause severe bleeding.

Uncontrolled Bleeding

If you have uncontrolled bleeding after a trauma to your teeth or due to another underlying medical condition, you must seek urgent intervention. A surgery might be crucial to stop and address the cause of the bleeding.

A Fractured or Dislocated Jaw

Trauma can result in fractures or a dislocated jaw. The condition can cause severe pain and make performing oral functions such as speaking or chewing impossible. In such a condition, visit us immediately for a surgical intervention.

Severe Toothache

Persistent tooth pain can be due to many causes, such as dental pulp infection. With such severe pain, it can be impossible to chew or grind food in the right manner. You can also experience other problems, such as severe headaches and lack of sleep. We ensure we investigate the root cause of the intense pain, and if surgical intervention is necessary, we perform it promptly.

Many things can call for an emergency surgical intervention. Our team ensures that we offer prompt treatment and alleviate the side effects of the problem. For more information, contact us immediately and let us find a feasible solution for you.
