EMERGENCY DENTAL TREATMENTS, SUCH AS TOOTH EXTRACTION OR FILLING A BROKEN TOOTH

Dental health is essential for our quality of life, but sometimes emergency situations can arise that require immediate attention. In these cases, it's important to know what emergency dental treatments are available and how they are carried out. In this blog, we'll discuss two of the most common emergency dental treatments: tooth extraction and filling a broken tooth.


Tooth extraction


Tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth from the mouth. It's often done when a tooth is damaged or infected and can't be saved through other treatments. Tooth extraction may also be necessary in cases of space problems in the mouth, such as an impacted tooth or wisdom tooth causing issues.


Before tooth extraction, the dentist will perform a complete dental examination to determine if extraction is the best option. If proceeding with extraction is decided, local anesthesia will be administered to reduce pain during the procedure. The dentist will then use special techniques to extract the tooth safely.


After tooth extraction, it's important to follow the dentist's postoperative care instructions to reduce the risk of infection and promote healing. This may include using ice to reduce swelling, avoiding smoking and hot foods and drinks, and following a soft diet for a few days.


Dental filling


A broken tooth can be caused by a blow or a cavity and can cause pain and sensitivity. Fortunately, a broken tooth can be repaired through a dental filling.


Dental filling is a procedure in which the dentist cleans the affected area and then fills the tooth with filling material. The most common filling materials are dental amalgam and composite. Dental amalgam is a mixture of metals and composite is a mixture of resin and glass.
