Urgent Dental Care
Emergency Dentistry in Essex
Our dental staff are ready for any urgent dental service including:
Fractured or Knocked Out ToothAny sudden and forceful impact on the face can cause a tooth to fracture or get knocked out entirely. A broken and knocked-out tooth is a harrowing situation and needs immediate dental attention as you risk losing the affected tooth with every minute of delay. If you or your child have knocked a tooth out, the first thing you must do is find the tooth and put it in a jar of cold milk. Next, call us immediately, and we will schedule an emergency dental appointment for you in Essex. In the meantime, bite on a soft piece of cloth to stop bleeding and reach the office as fast as possible. The sooner you come, the better the chances of the tooth being saved and re-implanted.
Dental Soft Tissue InjuriesAny trauma to the face can lead to gum and other oral soft tissue injuries. The face has a rich supply of blood, and oral injuries can lead to severe blood loss. If you have injured your gums, cheek, tongue or fractured your jawbone, it is a dental emergency that requires immediate attention.
Dental AbscessIf you notice a gradually facial or oral swelling accompanied with pus discharge, it most probably is a dental abscess. Dental abscesses can be excruciating and require the immediate attention of a professional dentist for relief and proper treatment.
Intense ToothacheAn intense, persistent, throbbing and severe toothache is a dental emergency that needs to be checked out at the earliest. If you happen to be in such a crisis situation, please do not worry and call us immediately. In the meantime, over the counter painkiller and cold compression may provide some relief untill you reach the dental office.
Broken Orthodontic BracesSnapped wires or broken brackets can lead to injury as it pokes around in the mouth. Brackets are small and can even be ingested. It is important to get broken wires, and brackets removed promptly to prevent such complications from arising.
Pain or Bleeding After Dental ExtractionBleeding after a tooth extraction usually stops within an hour. Postoperative tenderness and discomfort are also manageable with prescribed painkillers. However, if you are experiencing extreme pain and continuous bleeding from the extraction socket, it is a dental emergency and must be addressed swiftly. Please call us immediately at Essex Family Dental, and we will schedule an emergency appointment for you right away.
Loose, or broken crown, or getting something stuck between your teeth is also a form of dental emergency as it can lead to complications and immense discomfort. If you find yourself or your loved one in such a situation, reach out to us at Essex Family Dental without any delay. Prompt dental intervention is key to managing dental emergencies.
