Emergency Dental Care in Baltimore
The most common dental emergencies includes the loss or severe loosening of a tooth and a toothache. Quest Dental provides emergency dental care in Baltimore and we offer a few recommendations if any of these experiences happen to you or a family member. Toothache pain can range from what may be described as a mild, dull ache to an excruciating and sharp pain. In addition to varying intensities of pain, the feelings may become more intense when chewing, or if consuming foods or liquids with extreme hot or cold temperatures. No one symptom can identify the cause and will require an oral examination in our office to truly determine the reason for the pain. Patients experiencing a toothache can expect our dental professionals to gently probe and tap on the tooth and may require an x-ray to make a complete diagnosis.
Loosened teeth or teeth that are completely out of the socket are among the reasons patients should seek emergency dental care in Baltimore by Quest Dental. Patients who experience a mouth injury that loosens a tooth are advised to push it back into its socket if possible. No other treatment may be required if the pulp stays healthy. If however, an infection occurs or the pulp is damaged, a root canal may be required. If a tooth is completely loosened and falls out, Quest Dental recommends you seek immediate treatment. During the time the patient seeks dental care, keep the tooth moist by either placing it in milk or a glass of water with a pinch of salt. Depending on the level of root development, a root canal treatment may be recommended. The type of treatment for a completely avulsed tooth will be determined following the length of time the tooth was out of the mouth and how it was stored as well as the level of success in treatment.
If you require emergency dental care in Baltimore, contact the professionals at Quest Dental for treatment.
