Emergency Dental Care In Miami, FL
Don't crack a tooth; make a smile instead!
Almost everyone has experienced tooth pain at some point in their life, which can range from slight discomfort to severe agony. Pain is the body’s way of alerting the brain and immune system that something is inappropriate.
Nonetheless, when teeth are involved, it can be challenging to define the precise origin of the pain, and the discomfort may come and go in reaction to other stimuli, such as hot meals. Exactly what is it that aching teeth indicate, and how should it be dealt with?
Tooth decay, a bacterial infection that can spread across various sections of the tooth and even into the gum tissue, is the most common cause of dental discomfort. Tooth discomfort can also be caused by trauma or gum disease. When you visit our Miami dentist, they will examine your teeth, ask you questions about your symptoms, and sometimes take x-rays to determine the root of the problem.
Sudden Extreme Pain or Root Canal Emergencies
Are you suffering from Infected Teeth? If you’re experiencing constant, severe pain and pressure, swelling of the gums, and sensitivity to touch, it’s likely that you have a tooth infection, which may be accompanied by an abscess (an inflamed, pus-filled sac) in the surrounding gum and bone tissue. Seeing a dentist quickly is essential here, not just for pain management but also to save the tooth if it can be done. Root canal therapy, in which the infection is removed, the abscess is drained, and the infection is halted, are two possible treatments.
Tooth decay, a loose filling, a broken tooth, or even damage to the pulp tissue inside the tooth can all produce intense discomfort while biting down on food. As soon as possible, schedule an appointment with a dentist, as you may require a root canal to relieve the pain and save the tooth.
Wear and tear on teeth
Pain or pressure in the upper teeth and jaw may be an indication of a sinus headache, cold, or flu congestion. It is reasonable to expect that the oral pain will stop after the sickness has cleared up. This kind of pain can also be brought on by bruxism (the habit of clenching or grinding one’s teeth). Nightguards can be custom-made by dentists to protect teeth and jaws from the excessive force that might result from these practices.
