A toothache is usually a sign of a serious cavity or an infected tooth. When the enamel of our tooth is worn away by decay, the vulnerable pulp inside the tooth becomes exposed to bacteria. When the pulp becomes infected, it can cause serious pain.
No matter if your toothache is caused by a cavity or infection, it’s important to come to University Ave Dental right away for help. At University Ave Dental we provide restorative treatments such as fillings, dental crowns, and root canal therapy to repair your tooth and prevent further complications.
A loose filling or crown can be very alarming and is a serious dental emergency. This usually occurs when eating sticky, gummy or harder foods, when dental work becomes loose or pulled-out the tooth is vulnerable to damage. The enamel can decay, causing further cavity or tooth infection under the filling or crown. Getting your filling or crown replaced as soon as possible is critical to prevent more expensive dental treatments being needed. So contact us for an emergency dental appointment as quickly as possible.
Remain calm! It can be shocking to see a knocked out tooth. Timing is of the essence. It’s important to get treatment as soon as 1 hour if possible to save your tooth. Give us a call immediately to schedule a same-day appointment in Blaine.
While waiting for your appointment, make sure you only touch the knocked out tooth by it’s chewing surface and not by it’s root. Also keep the tooth in a cup filled with milk or saliva as this will help preserve the root surface for reimplantation. As a last resort, you can also keep the tooth in your mouth between your gums and cheek. Be careful not to accidentally swallow it. But remember to bring the tooth to your appointment. Dr. Blakeslee will do his best to save it.
Cracked, chipped or broken teeth can happen any moment. Usually due to accidentally biting a super hard piece of food, non-food objects like a fork tine, or even because of using your teeth as a tool to open packages.
No matter the cause of your broken tooth, it is critical to see a dentist right away. Even when the crack or chip does not look bad, it may be more extensive than it looks. Leading to complications like future infections. So contact University Ave Dental for a convenient same-day appointment right away.
