We can repair severely damaged teeth and even replant ones that have been fully dislodged, but patients need to act fast in these situations! Try to recover as much of the tooth/teeth as possible, and give our office a call as quickly as you can. We’ll give you first-aid tips over the phone and schedule an appointment so we can see you and save your smile right away!
Dental Emergencies Due to Oral Care Neglect
Without consistent brushing and flossing, a tooth can easily develop a very painful infection. To get fast relief for a hurting tooth, make sure you:
- Rinse and floss around the tooth to dislodge anything that might be stuck and causing the pain, such as a leftover piece of food.
- If this doesn’t completely fix the problem, give NJCD a call.
- Until you can make it to our office, a cold compress placed on the face or an OTC medication can help manage any discomfort.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy—or just a “root canal”—is the last option in saving a tooth before extraction is necessary. Although it’s believed to be very painful, modern root canals are actually nothing to fear. In fact, they’re usually the only way to get out of pain and back to your regular life.
To perform a root canal, Dr. Johnson or Dr. Baxter will access the inside of your tooth and completely remove all infected matter (the interior pulp and nerve of the tooth). Then the tooth will be filled with a biocompatible material, and a filling will seal it off from future decay. If necessary, a dental crown is placed over the tooth to restore its form and strength. Root canal therapy is often completed in two visits to the dentist.
Don’t Wait, We’re Ready to Help!
Too often, adults put off seeking urgent care because they don’t realize they’re experiencing an emergency. Just remember—if you’re in pain, you need help immediately. Patients in the Northside of Jacksonville, Dunn Avenue, Callahan, and Nassau Village should contact our office for emergency care as soon as possible.
At North Jacksonville Complete Dentistry, we make every effort to save your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are some situations in which a tooth extraction is necessary to get you out of pain or benefit your oral health. But rest assured that our gentle, compassionate team will always make sure you’re well taken care of from start to finish.
