Dental Emergencies at Centre Dentaire Anjou: Common Situations
Tooth fractures :
Following a trauma, a fall or after chewing a hard food, a dental fracture can occur. This is an emergency to be taken seriously, since the degree of damage to the tooth must be assessed by a dentist in order to assess the urgency of the situation. The patient is then directed to the appropriate treatment. Seek prompt medical attention if you notice any bleeding, severe pain, or the presence of a red dot at the site of the fracture.
Loss of a tooth (avulsion) :
An avulsion occurs when a tooth comes out of its socket completely, that is, from the place where the roots are normally anchored in the gum and jawbone. This represents a dental emergency that must be treated without delay to maximize the chances that the tooth can be replaced and to preserve the integrity of the teeth.
Tooth abscess :
A tooth abscess is an infection at an advanced stage. It can occur after a fracture or a crack, when tooth decay is not treated, or when there is periodontal disease (gums and bones). Tooth abscess can cause swelling, a build-up of pus, and severe pain. See a dentist right away to treat the abscess and stop the infection.
Broken filling or dental restoration :
Various types of complications are possible depending on the type of restoration that broke. To avoid pain, cosmetic inconvenience as well as any risk of infection, consult your dentist.
