Dental Accidents & Facial Trauma
These types of injuries can happen when you’re least expecting it – maybe you’ve tripped on the sidewalk while walking to work, or maybe someone’s elbow accidentally slammed right into your mouth while playing around with the kids at home. Whatever the circumstances are, experiencing a broken or knocked-out tooth can induce panic at a moment’s notice.
First of all, we strongly urge you to remain calm and pick up the phone right away, as there is a small window of time for traumatized teeth to be successfully preserved and restored. If the tooth has been completely dislodged, try to place it back into its original socket and hold it there – otherwise, carry it in a container of milk. If facial swelling occurs, the use of a cold compress can help reduce the uncomfortable effects.
Dental Emergencies Due to Oral Care Neglect
Severe pain and/or sensitivity in a specific tooth is likely the cause of an advanced dental infection brought on by ineffective brushing and flossing at home. In order to rescue the tooth and help it stay a stable part of your smile, Dr. Isaacson will likely recommend root canal therapy. If you’re unable to reach the practice right away, it is safe to take Aspirin to manage the pain in the interim but be careful NOT to place the medication directly on the gum tissue, as this could cause burning.

Root canals may have a “scary” reputation, but today’s advanced technologies and comfort techniques have helped make it more pleasant and successful than ever before! The procedure is simple enough – Dr. Isaacson will carefully access the tooth’s inner pulp chamber, eliminating the diseased bacteria that’s causing a severe “toothache” and thoroughly cleansing the structure.
