Common Dental Emergencies in Gaithersburg, MD
Our dentists are dedicated to helping patients when they have sudden dental problems. Some of the most common emergencies that we treat in our office include:
Most of the time, tooth decay causes tooth pain or toothaches. However, patients who clench or grind their teeth may also have tooth pain and dental injuries. If you have severe tooth sensitivity or pain, please contact our office, and we will help you schedule a consultation.
We offer root canal treatment for patients with cavities or dental infections. Our team can also make custom nightguards to alleviate pain caused by teeth clenching and grinding.
Lost Permanent Teeth
Have you just lost a permanent tooth? Gently rinse the tooth in water if you can find it and hold it by its top, or crown. Then, locate your tooth socket, place the tooth, and slowly bite down. If you cannot place the tooth back in its socket, place it in your cheek or a cup of saliva to keep it moist. We offer complete implant services for patients with lost teeth.
Damaged Dental Restorations
If you have just broken a dental crown, dental bridge, or dental filling, we can help. Contact our dental office, and we can help plan your replacement restoration. We will provide you with a temporary restoration. You must receive a temporary replacement to prevent pain or damage to worn or broken teeth beneath the restoration.
Many patients may experience bleeding gums if they have inflamed gums or brush their teeth too aggressively. However, excessive bleeding is a dental emergency, particularly after dental procedures. It is common for patients to experience bleeding directly after tooth extraction.
Please call our dental office if your surgical site or tooth socket continues bleeding 48 hours after treatment. We will find the cause of the bleeding and help prevent blood loss.
Objects Stuck Between Teeth
Gently floss if you have an object stuck between your teeth. Do not attempt other methods to remove the object, as this can damage your teeth. Call our office, and we will remove the object for you. We use small instruments that can easily remove small objects from between teeth.
