Sources of Pain in Common Dental Emergencies


In America, dental emergencies are responsible for a great deal of suffering. Twenty-two percent of participants in a recent survey reported having orofacial or dental pain within the preceding six months. If you experience tooth pain, your emergency dentistry expert’s first challenge is finding its cause. Migraines, sinus disease, and temporomandibular joint pain could mimic dental pain, but in most cases, a problem with the teeth or surrounding soft tissues is at fault. Five conditions commonly seen in emergency dentistry include:

  1. Trauma to teeth can result in fractures, loosening, displacement, and avulsion. In all cases, prompt evaluation from an emergency dentistry specialist is essential. After taking x-rays, your dentist in Chantilly can develop a treatment plan to repair or minimize damage.
  2. Knocked-out teeth are completely removed from their sockets. Ideally, a knocked-out tooth should be re-implanted on the spot. If it is dirty or contaminated, rinse it gently with water first. Do not touch or scrub the tooth’s root. See your dentist immediately for further treatment.
  3. Serious periodontal disease may result in abscesses that cause pain, facial swelling, and pus drainage. A dentist can make an incision to drain the abscess if your pain is severe. In some cases, antibiotic treatment is necessary. If you have symptoms of an abscess, you should see a dentist within 24 hours.
  4. Partially erupted wisdom teeth can be a cause of swelling, pain, tenderness, and an unpleasant taste. If you experience symptoms in the area of a wisdom tooth, see your dentist for evaluation immediately. Surgical treatment may be necessary to resolve the problem if it the tooth does not fully erupt on its own.
  5. Cavities aren’t usually painful until aggressive decay causes inflammation of your tooth’s pulp. Emergency tooth extraction is rarely necessary, but you may need to have a root canal treatment to save your tooth.

You can prevent many dental emergencies by maintaining good oral hygiene, seeing your dentist regularly, and wearing protective mouth guards or helmets during sports activities.
