Types of Dental Emergencies
Are you looking for an emergency dentist in the Jonesboro area? Dr. Anthony Bartels currently welcomes dental emergencies to our Jonesboro dental office and can often treat them on the same day.
We never want you to experience pain. When you have a dental emergency, pain is often the first indication that there is something wrong.
Common Dental Emergencies
- Fractured/lost tooth – Contact us right away! If you have a fratured tooth, it puts your tooth at risk. If you lost an adult tooth, and still have the tooth, we may be able to repair and keep your tooth, but time is of the essence in both cases.
- Broken/lost restoration – Losing a restoration can be a real pain. Your tooth may feel sensitive and you might even have pain if you lose a large filling or crown. Ion some cases, we can repair and reattach your crown. In other cases, we may need to create a new restoration in order to properly protect your tooth.
- Swelling and pain – Sometimes a tooth can become infected on the inside or near the tip of your root. In these cases, root canal therapy may be required to save your tooth. Anytime you experience pain, it is an indication that something is seriously wrong and needs your attention. Don’t put off a trip to our Jonesboro dental office! Acting fast can make the difference between saving and losing your tooth.
- Gum pain or swelling – Sometimes something may become lodged in your gums. Common culprits are seeds or popcorn hulls. You might be tempted to avoid brushing or flossing the area because it hurts! You should, however, pay extra attention to the area if you believe you have something stuck between your tooth and gums. If bleeding persists for more than a few days, it can indicate an infection. You should give us a call so we can help you feel comfortable and enjoy a healthy smile.
