Emergency Dental Care

1. A Loose Tooth

Adults shouldn’t experience wiggly teeth. If you’ve noticed your teeth feel loose, you have to go to an emergency dentist in Brisbane, if you live in the area, as the loose teeth could indicate a painful tooth injury that required immediate dental care. Even if your teeth seem safe, an emergency dentist can check for jaw and nerve damage and treat you before the condition gets any worse.

A localised infection can also cause a loose tooth. If the tooth is sore, you could be experiencing gum disease and your emergency dentist can use x-rays and an oral exam to find the cause of the infection and carry out treatment.

2.Excruciating Toothache

If you are in toothache agony, it’s time to go straight to the dentist. Treatment will depend on what’s causing the toothache, which is why a proper diagnosis is important.

3.Sore, Bleeding Gums

If your gums bleed after flossing, it can indicate early signs of gingivitis or gum disease. If your gums are bleeding excessively, you need to get to the emergency dentist.
It’s important to catch gum disease early to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

4. You’ve Got A Swollen Jaw

A swollen jaw can be the sign of a serious infection. If your jaw is swollen and you have a bad taste in your mouth, trouble breathing or swallowing or a fever, seek immediate dental assistance. Salivary gland infection is a bacterial infection that’s caused by a blockage in the salivary glands.

5. Dental Abscesses

If you have any signs of a dental abscess, you should go straight to your emergency dentist. An abscessed tooth is a painful infection found at the root of the tooth. It’s usually the result of an untreated cavity or extreme gum disease. It could also be the result of tooth trauma. Symptoms of an abscessed tooth include swollen glands, pus and a foul taste in your mouth.

6. You’re Getting Constant Headaches

But if you’re experiencing chronic, recurring headaches, something else might be going on. Your head and teeth are connected, so pain in the jaw and mouth can show up as a headache. It could even be the result of grinding your teeth.

7. You Have A Numb Tooth

If you’ve been having painful toothache and then you don’t feel anything at all, the infection may have spread to the tooth’s root. Numbness in a tooth is not a good sign. Pay attention to toothaches, as you may need to get to your emergency dentist right away.

Don’t ignore that nagging pain. There’s always an emergency dentist just around the corner to help relieve your pain and symptoms.
