Repairs due to injury/accidents
A completely damaged tooth needs extraction. Emergency dentists remove the tooth so that the infection or the cavity doesn’t spread to the other teeth or gums only when all possibilities of retaining the tooth do not workout. The removal sometimes helps the gums heal and prevent continuous bleeding that may have been caused by trauma. The emergency dentist is well equipped to do the needful and safely extract the tooth with the right equipment and technique.
Injury or otherwise, your smile may no longer look healthy if the tooth gets damaged or chipped. It will impact your oral health because the tooth is exposed without the protective enamel causing bacteria to attack the tooth leading to a faster case for cavity and further damage to the tooth. The tooth gets fractured with the impact causing a crack in the tooth. The tooth will no longer have the strength, and it needs repair by an emergency dentist. You can pick the best on your first dentist visit.
Sometimes the dental accessories that add aesthetic and functional value to the smile may be damaged, which are also repaired by an emergency dentist so that patients need not have face discomfort or feel shy to flash the smile due to the damage. The repair or replacements happen for
- Broken or damaged crowns
- Broken brackets (orthodontic treatment)
