Urgent Dental Care in Bryn Mawr, PA
The most common dental emergencies that our office treats include:
Lost Permanent Teeth
Have you just knocked out a permanent tooth? Hold the tooth by the crown and rinse it if it is dirty. Place the tooth in a cup of cold milk to transport to our office. If we cannot reattach the tooth, we will recommend a dental implant. Implants are one of the best restorative options for missing teeth. Dental implants restore teeth at the root. They also look and feel natural.
Do you have chronic or severe tooth pain? There could be multiple causes. Tooth decay, TMJ disorders, dental injuries, and tooth impaction are some of the most common causes of toothaches. Contact us and we will examine your smile find the source of your pain. We will recommend treatment based on the cause of your toothaches.
Broken Dental Restoration
Do not try to place a broken tooth crown, dental bridge, or denture back in your mouth. Call our office so we can place a temporary restoration and plan your permanent restoration. Continuing to wear a broken restoration can damage your gums and remaining teeth. We offer temporary restorations so you can feel more comfortable in the meantime.
If you have just chipped or cracked a tooth, clean your mouth with warm water. Apply pressure to the broken tooth with a clean cloth and then call our office. It is important to treat a broken tooth as soon as possible. Sometimes, tooth damage can expose the inner nerves of the tooth. This causes tooth pain and sensitivity. It also leaves patients prone to dental infections. We provide dental veneers, tooth bonding, and dental crowns to cover and protect broken teeth.
Bleeding gums are a common result of gum inflammation and an early sign of gum disease. Sometimes patients can also experience bleeding gums if they brush their teeth aggressively. Additionally, some bleeding is normal if you have recently undergone tooth extraction treatment. However, excessive bleeding is abnormal. Contact our office if your tooth socket keeps bleeding a day or two after treatment.
