Let’s consider three dental issues that may require immediate treatment.
Most of us experience a toothache at some point in our lives. Even one day with oral pain can seem like an eternity.
A toothache could be a symptom of an abscess. If an abscess progresses, it can destroy the root of the tooth. It can even destroy the surrounding bone.
Possible causes of a toothache are tooth decay, an injury to the tooth, a broken crown, an infection, and TMD (temporomandibular disorder).
Let Dr. Ortega take care of you. You will quickly be back to pain-free eating, speaking, and sleeping. What a relief!
Call Marcos Ortega DDS if you have a toothache.
What if one of the wires on your braces comes loose? It can damage your teeth or gums. If this happens and you cut the inside of your mouth, rinse with a solution of salt and water.
Call Marcos Ortega DDS if a wire on your braces breaks. We have extended hours for when an oral problem can’t wait.
We hope this never happens to you. But we are here in the unfortunate event that it does. And it’s not the end of the world.
If a tooth is knocked out, it may be successfully re-implanted if done swiftly. Make sure you hold the tooth only by the crown. Never touch the root!
If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently with water. Be wary not to brush off any tissue attached. It possible, put the tooth back in the socket. (This may not be possible with younger children.)
