We will make sure that all of your tooth pain and tooth aches are properly examined. Figuring out the source of your pain will help us remove your pain entirely. Examples of causes can be cavities that once started out small, but over time have grown and decayed your tooth's health. Another example could be a foreign object or food has entered your gums or between your teeth. This would require instant surgery of the mouth to remove the object from your teeth. Other examples could be gum disease and wisdom teeth.
If you have an infected tooth or area of your gums and it has been infected for an extended period of time, your mouth can start to grow dental abscesses. These abscesses look like blisters on your gums and are extremely painful and look quite disturbing. The reason for these abscesses is due to an infection of your tooth which is connected to a root between your tooth and gums. The pain shoots up and creates an abscess with the hopes of releasing any puss or build up leakage out of the blister. Dr. Kambez Shukoor has years of experience in handling emergency dental patients and has successfully cured their tooth pain by implementing same day emergency care services. Give us a call today to get started.
Frequently Asked Emergency Dental Questions
Question: I Have A Severe Toothache. What Should I Do?
Answer: Give our office a call as soon as possible. The first step we will take is to properly evaluate your current dental health situation. Once we have identified the root cause of all of your pain, we will have a better chance at removing your tooth pain completely. Also, by calling our Washington DC emergency dentistry, we can prescribe you over the counter medicine to help with your pain.
Question: Can I Save A Fractured Tooth?
Answer: Saving your tooth depends on the severity of the damage inflicted. If your tooth hasn't been damaged too bad, we may be able to save it. Quick action from a local emergency dentist can also prevent the risk of having a dental infection, gum infection and reduce the chance of needing extensive surgery. If you have lost a part of your tooth, try your hardest to find it and make sure you place it in a safe container. Dip the tooth in cold water and bring it in with you. We may be able to save your fractured tooth!
Question: How Do I Know If I Need An Emergency Dentist?
Answer: If you've chipped a tooth, lost a tooth, fractured a tooth, have severe tooth pain or have received an abscess on your gums, then you more than likely need to see an emergency dentist near you.
Question: My Tooth Has Just Fallen Out. What Should I Do Next?
Answer: The correct medical term of a "knocked out" or "fallen out" tooth is called "avulsed". If the tooth that has been lost is an adult tooth, then it is possible to replant the tooth back into it's root. If the lost tooth is a baby tooth, most dentists will recommend that you keep the lost tooth out. Common causes for tooth loss would be due to sports related injuries, falling face first, being hit in the back of the head by a strong force or biting on a hard object.
If your tooth has just fallen out, you may still have a chance at saving it. There are a few options you can choose from when dealing with this situation. If possible, try placing the missing tooth back into the root and apply very light pressure while biting down on gauze or a wet tea bag. Another method would be to dip your tooth in milk while you travel to the emergency dental clinic near you. We must advise you to NOT let your tooth dry out. This can completely damage your tooth to the point where all chances of saving your tooth are lost.
Question: I need instant relief for my dental pain. What should I do?
Answer: When a patient calls in to schedule an emergency appointment, our best advice to ease their pain would be to apply a cold pack or ice pack to the affected areas. This can help with the swelling and reduce inflammation. With most dental problems such as tooth aches or swelling, the pain can be reduced by applying cold to the inflamed areas.
