Dealing With Dental Emergencies

Accidents and participation in contact sports are common causes of dental emergencies. Trauma to the mouth can cause a laceration of the gums and potentially serious bleeding, or can even fracture a tooth. Minor chipping may not be considered an emergency, but the serious cracking of a tooth will require immediate attention. In serious blows to the head or mouth, teeth can be driven into the gums or even completely dislodged from their respective sockets. Some dental emergencies may arise from problems in the teeth themselves, such as the formation of an abscess. Dental problems can be as painful as any other illness and, if not treated, can also lead to serious complications.

Types of Emergency Dental Services

A tooth that has been in some manner damaged in a traumatic event will need to be stabilized, which includes its placement back in the proper position. If the pulp inside is otherwise untouched, the tooth may not need further treatment. However, extensive damage will probably require root canal treatment. In this procedure, the pulp is removed from the tooth and replaced with a special substance, and the treated area is then fitted with a crown. Even a tooth that has been knocked out might be saved, depending upon the amount of time it remained out of the mouth. This type of injury requires immediate attention, as do other types of dental problems, including abscessed teeth or gums.

3V Dental Offers Complete Dental Care and Cleanings

The complete dental cleaning and checkup process includes a number different things, depending in part on how long it has been since you last had an appointment with your dentist. In addition to the actual cleaning process, your dentist will also conduct a physical examination of your teeth and gums.

X-rays may be recommended if a year or more has lapsed between your visit to the dentist. Your dentist will examine your mouth for any sign of oral cancer. Finally, your dentist will examine your bite to ensure that there are no issues.

Once these steps are completed, your dentist or a dental hygienist will do the actual teeth cleaning. Dental cleaning is designed to plaque and tartar from your teeth. The reality is that even if you follow your dentist’s recommendations regarding brushing your teeth and flossing, plaque and tartar can build up in places that you just cannot effectively reach through brushing and flossing.

Reversing Gingivitis with Dental Cleanings
One of the key benefits of dental cleanings if that they can reverse gingivitis in many cases. Gingivitis is the first stage of serious gum disease that can result in permanent damage.

In some cases, you may need more than one dental cleaning to get gingivitis under control and to move towards eliminating it. Into the future, to prevent a recurrence of gingivitis, you may need to up the frequency of your visit to the dentist.

Proper intervention through dental cleanings prevents gingivitis from developing into more advanced periodontitis. Periodontitis is very serious and can result in permanent, irreversible gum damage.

Dental Cleanings Prevent Larger More Serious Issues
Dental cleanings provide the most important time at which a dentist is able to identify other problems that may afflict a patient. For example, it is during the comprehensive dental cleaning process that a dentist can identify cavities.

It is crucial that a cavity be dealt with in a timely manner. The failure to do so can result in it growing and causing bacterial infection to develop in the pulp of a tooth. Such a development can cause significant damage to a person’s tooth structure and be extremely painful.
