Emergency Dentistry Conditions That We Treat

Signs You Need an Emergency Dentist

A tooth that has been fully or partially avulsed (dislodged) requires immediate attention from an emergency dentist. If you’ve had a tooth come out and if possible, put the tooth back in the socket and let your other teeth hold it in place until you receive care. If this isn’t possible, it’s best to place the tooth in a small container of milk to preserve it. If replaced in the socket by our emergency dentist soon enough, and held secure with a dental splint, the tooth may be able to be saved!
Tooth pain that does not go away is often a sign that an infection is present, sometimes even inside your tooth. A filling may be all you need, but extreme tooth sensitivity or sharp pain when you bite or chew can also indicate an emergency dentistry situation involving your tooth root. These cases often require root canal therapy before your painful toothache can be relieved.
Suffering severe damage to a tooth after oral trauma or injury requires the care of an emergency dentist. Minor chips and cracks can wait, but if you have broken or fractured a tooth, the damage may need attention from our emergency dentist in Charleston, SC. Depending on the size and extent of the break, you may need a filling, a dental crown or a root canal. More severe cases may require emergency tooth extractions.
An infection due to an injury, cavity or previous dental work can cause an abscess to form at the base of the tooth root. Treatment frequently involves an emergency root canal to eliminate the damaged pulp from inside the root.
A “dry socket” can occur after you’ve had a tooth removed, if the blood clot in the empty tooth socket is dislodged, exposing the underlying bone and nerves. Preventing infection and resolving the severe oral pain that can result requires immediate treatment, usually involving cleaning the empty socket and packing the space with gauze.
