Emergency Dentistry

Is your toothache leading to a sleepless night? Have you suffered trauma to your face and broken your tooth? If your answer to any of these questions was positive, you might be suffering from a dental emergency. Emergencies can come knocking at your door at any time, and dental emergencies are no different.

Dental emergencies can be stressful and require the urgent attention of an Emergency Dentist in Essex. If you are experiencing a dental crisis, we are here to help you with our emergency dentistry services.

Our urgent dental care staff are ready for any emergency dental service including:

Fractured or Knocked Out Tooth

Any 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 Injuries

Any 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 Abscess

If 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 Toothache

An 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 Braces

Snapped 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 Extraction

Bleeding 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.

A loose, 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. If you have any more questions or would like to know more about our services, please get in touch with us. Our team of highly trained emergency dentists are here to assist you.

    Yes. Dental cleaning is 100% worth it. Unlike the body, which can be seen if dirty, this isn’t the case with your dental health. Dental cleaning requires an experienced dentist who is well aware of future problems depending on your lifestyle. A dental cleaning is carried out by learning more about your lifestyle during consultation. Dental cleaning saves you money because our experienced dentist can detect and fix a significant dental problem before it’s too late.

    A general dental examination is a series of procedures where an experienced dentist checks your teeth for problems and reports depending on how severe the pain is.

    Toothaches are unbearable, and it is a good idea to get your teeth checked periodically through a dentist to avoid severe problems like tooth decay, infection, or the need for a root canal. A lot of trouble can be avoided by performing regular dental examinations.

    No, dental extractions are not painful. The dentist will provide local anesthesia, if needed, during the procedure to eliminate the pain.

    It takes around two weeks to completely recover from a tooth extraction. It is also advisable to take any prescription drugs prescribed by the dentist to avoid the chances of infection, as open wounds can cause illness due to food intake and other factors.

    A root canal procedure might sound painful, but root canal procedures are more sophisticated due to today’s advanced techniques and instruments. The dentist may use local anesthesia to ease the pain. Root canal procedures can be carried out without any pain.

    A root canal lasts a lifetime. The root canal treatments are very successful and offer benefits like pleasing aesthetics, restoring the strength and bite power of the teeth, and decreasing the chances of tooth decay or other problems that might need more time, attention, and money.
