Marrero Emergency Dental Services
Have you experienced a recent injury to your mouth or is a tooth or series of teeth causing you pain? Our Marrero emergency dental services will help you get the analysis and treatment you need to get you on the path towards healing and recovery! Injury to the teeth, mouth, or gums and severe decay and cavities only get worse the longer you wait to be seen, so it is important you call our office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment to be seen by our team of highly qualified dentists and dental care professionals. Extreme tooth and mouth pain or discomfort might be the cause of one of the following issues:
Increased tooth sensitivity is often the result of receding gum lines or from the thinning of a tooth’s enamel. While not a severe dental problem, tooth sensitivity can cause light to moderate discomfort that can get in the way of daily life and make it difficult to eat and drink (especially hot and cold food and drink items). If you have light pain or discomfort associated with hot or cold food and drink items, then sensitive teeth might be your issue.
A cracked tooth can be caused by a traumatic injury to the mouth, a tooth grinding habit, or something as seemingly harmless as chewing on ice, hard candy, or another hard food item. Your molars are particularly prone to cracking since they bear the brunt of the force teeth experience when chewing or when the mouth is clenched shut. Depending on the severity and cause of the cracked tooth, you can expect either minor pain or substantial discomfort while chewing. If you suspect you have a cracked tooth, contact our office as soon as possible for our New Orleans, Harvey, and Marrero emergency dental services and we will fit you in for an appointment as soon as possible. Minor cracks in teeth may only require our dentists to polish your teeth. However, deep cracks in teeth can result in infection or more severe damage to the tooth itself that can require more extreme and costly dental services. Severely cracked teeth are often corrected by a crown, a root canal, or tooth extraction. More information on cracked teeth can be found here.
The most common source of tooth pain is the infamous cavity. Typically, a cavity is no cause for emergency. But, if proper dental assistance is not sought to remove severe decay from a tooth, infection can occur and require more costly and complicated procedures to restore your tooth’s health. When severe tooth decay occurs and infects the pulp or nerve of the tooth, a root canal will most likely be required. During a root canal procedure, the infected pulp of the tooth is removed and the inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned. A root canal has the benefit of restoring your tooth to its former health, and preventing the need to remove the tooth and replace it with an implant, which is a more complicated and costly procedure. During the procedure, we take additional steps to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible. Brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing, mouthwash, and biannual dental checkups are the best ways to prevent severe decay from forming on your teeth.
