Emergency Dentistry in Rehoboth Beach, DE
There are common dental emergencies that we can treat in our office for existing patients. Learn what you can do at home as well as how we can treat your dental emergency in our office:
Lost Permanent Tooth
If your tooth is knocked out, pick it up by its crown, or top. Avoid touching the tooth roots and place the tooth in a cup of cold milk. Our team may be able to reattach the tooth if it is kept moist. However, if we cannot reattach the tooth, we can replace it with a dental implant. Dental implants restore teeth at the root. They are made of durable titanium implants that fuse with the jaw bone beneath the gums.
There are multiple common causes of toothaches or tooth sensitivity. If you have worn teeth, you may be more sensitive to temperature. Additionally, if you have tooth decay or gum disease, you can experience frequent or chronic tooth pain. Even wisdom teeth can cause pain when they come in behind the back molars. Take pain medication at home and schedule an appointment with us even if your tooth pain fades. We will thoroughly examine your smile to find the source of your pain. Then, we will recommend the right treatment.
Object Stuck Between Teeth
Gently floss between your teeth if you have an object stuck in your mouth. Using any other method can damage your teeth or gums. If you cannot dislodge the object, we can help. Our dental professionals have small dental tools to comfortably remove the object.
Broken Dental Restoration
Have you just broken a tooth crown, dental bridge, denture, or tooth filling? Contact our office. Do not try to place the restoration back in your mouth as this can damage your teeth and gums. At your appointment, bring the appliance with you. If we cannot easily reattach your restoration, we will create a new restoration.
After tooth extraction, patients will continue to experience bleeding at the extraction site. We use gauze to create a blood clot and prevent dry socket. However, if your mouth continues to bleed hours or days after treatment, contact our office. Alternatively, if your blood clot is dislodged, you may also contact our office. A dry socket can be a painful problem because it exposes the bone and nerves.
