Dental emergencies can happen at any time, anywhere, and when you least expect it
playing a contact sport or in an unexpected accident. Many times, it will be obvious as soon as it happens: your tooth gets knocked loose during sports or you fall and your tooth sustains severe damage. Or it may be that you are experiencing an extreme onset of pain or swelling.
Depending on the extent of the damage, a fractured tooth may be repaired by reattaching the broken piece or adding a filling. Sometimes, an artificial crown can restore your tooth. If the pulp is damaged, you may require root canal treatment.
Your tooth may be repositioned and stabilized depending on the nature of the injury. When a permanent tooth is dislodged, root canal therapy is often necessary within a few days of the injury.
The sooner you get dental treatment, the better in order to save your tooth. Be careful when handling your tooth, including not touching the root surface. How long your tooth is out of your mouth and how it has been stored will inform your Detroit dentist on how best to restore it back in its socket and stabilize it.
