Chipping a tooth is a precarious situation and sometimes it is hard to know if you have an emergency on your hands or not. Here are some tips about chipped teeth from your emergency dentist in Sarasota.
More serious dental chips
If your tooth has a large chip or break that is noticeable, your dentist can fix it right away with cosmetic bonding, a porcelain veneer, or crown. It will be important to see your dentist as soon as possible to get the process underway. In many cases, you will leave the office with a temporary restoration that will restore your smile until your permanent restoration is ready. Some procedures such as dental bonding can be completed the same day and don't require additional visits to your dentist.
Smaller dental chips
If your chip is small, you might not need immediate treatment, but you probably want to schedule a time with your dentist to have the chip smoothed so it doesn't irritate your tongue or other soft tissues.
Whether your chip is big or small, call Dr. Aygen and his team at Sarasota Dental Arts to learn more about your options for repair and determine if you need immediate attention.
Dental pain is said to be some of the worst! If you are experiencing a toothache that is constant or severe, it's crucial that you contact your dentist in Sarasota as soon as possible. This type of pain is often indicating that your tooth is infected and an infection won't go away without treatment, so please don't wait for it to get better.
At Sarasota Dental Arts, we make every effort to see our emergency patients as soon as possible. If you can't get to our office right away, here are some helpful tips for temporary toothache relief:
- Warm salt water rinse: Mix a half teaspoon of table salt with 8 ounces of warm water. Swish in your mouth and spit out, be sure not to swallow.
- Pain relief: Over-the-counter pain relief may eliminate your pain temporarily in some cases.
- A cold compress or ice pack: A cold compress applied with light pressure can relieve swelling and stop bleeding from soft tissue injuries.
- Anesthetics: Over-the-counter anesthetics can help relieve pain by numbing your mouth for a little while.
Please understand that these are only temporary remedies, and they may not even work for severe toothaches. Be sure to contact Sarasota Dental Arts right away if you are experiencing dental pain.
