Emergency Dentistry Services in Lansdale, PA
Some of the emergency dental problems that we can treat include:
Lost Permanent Teeth
If you have just knocked out one of your permanent teeth, try to locate it. Pick up the tooth by the top, or crown, and place it in a cup of cold milk. In some situations the lost tooth can be successfully reseated into the socket. If we cannot restore the natural tooth, we will recommend a tooth replacement option such as a dental implant. Dental implants are titanium posts that replace teeth at the root. They are the most durable and versatile restoration option for our patients with missing teeth.
Broken or Lost Dental Restorations
Our office can repair or replace dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. Please bring your broken restoration to our office and do not attempt to place it back in your mouth, as this can damage your teeth and gums. We will find the appropriate solution for your specific restorative needs.
Tooth pain and toothaches can have many causes. Dental injuries, wisdom teeth, dental erosion, or tooth decay are the most common reasons for tooth pain. Contact us if you are unsure of the cause of your tooth pain. We can examine your smile to find the cause and recommend the right treatment.
Have you just chipped or cracked one of your teeth? Gently rinse your broken tooth in water. Then, apply a cold compress on the outside cheek or mouth. You may also take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Our dental office provides multiple options to restore structure to broken teeth. We may recommend dental bonding, which is a procedure where we sculpt biocompatible material onto an injured tooth. A dental crown can also provide strength to a fractured tooth or molar.
It is normal for patients to experience bleeding at an extraction site several hours after their procedure. However, it is abnormal for bleeding to continue for days after an extraction. Several causes of continual bleeding can include accidental injury or damage to the site or broken stitches. Call our office so we can stave off the bleeding and ensure that your gum tissue heals properly.
