A dental emergency can arise from a variety of different issues that affect the teeth and supporting tissues surrounding them. Pain is usually an indicator that something is wrong, but some dental emergencies can have little to no pain. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, contact our Richland, WA office right away!
A Fractured Tooth
Accidents can happen and sometimes impact or even biting down on something hard can cause your tooth to chip or crack. Depending on the severity of the tooth damage, this could be something you want treated straight away. Calling Family First Dental and getting to our clinic as soon as possible can help save your tooth and assess the strength of your teeth to prevent future fractures.
Foreign Object Between Teeth
A foreign object stuck between the teeth is not only frustrating to live with but, if left for too long, can cause tooth decay and disease. If you cannot remove the object with dental floss or something has become lodged between the teeth that shouldn’t be ingested orally, we recommend getting to a dental clinic right away, so they can decide the right treatment for you.
Lost Filling or Crown
This can cause pain, discomfort and also affect your appearance if you have a lost crown. The sooner you can get to a replacement the better so you can feel like yourself again! Schedule an appointment and we will help get you back to normal.
Many people wish to ignore swelling or dull pain in the teeth or gums, but procrastinating on your oral health can lead to more serious problems. Infection such as gingivitis will worsen over time if left untreated, that is why it is important to consult a dental professional if you feel you may be suffering from any gum disease.
With years of experience behind us, there really is no job too big or small for our highly-skilled professionals. We are dedicated to not only your oral hygiene, but making you feel confident and cared for. If you are suffering from any of the above issues or have any other dental concerns, make an appointment at our Richland, WA clinic today. We love to hear from you!
