Have You Had a Dental Accident?

If you have injured your tooth, fractured it, or completely dislodged it from the mouth, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. There is typically only a small window of time for successful reimplantation – in the meantime, keep the tooth moist by placing it back in its original socket or keeping it in a container of milk. For fractures, facial swelling is likely to happen, but a cold compress can help reduce this uncomfortable symptom to a minimum. Dr. Taxin may recommend restorative services like dental crowns, bridges, or dental implants to repair the damage that’s been done if the natural structure cannot be saved in its entirety.

Do You Have a Toothache?

If you are experiencing significant pain that seems to be focused in a specific tooth, there may be a dangerous infection raging beneath the surface. First, though, we recommend that you floss and rinse your mouth first to rule out the possibility that’s something merely stuck between the teeth. If the discomfort continues without relief, please contact our office right away for further instruction.

In order to save the tooth, Dr. Taxin may recommend root canal therapy. This procedure will involve accessing the inner chamber of the tooth, eliminating diseased pulp, and replacing it with a biocompatible substitute before sealing the structure once more. This procedure has an average success rate of over 90%, and most treated teeth are able to stay a stable part of patients’ smiles for many more years!

Alternatively, if the tooth is too badly infected to receive treatment, extraction will be the right choice. Rest assured that our team will not only handle the removal process comfortably, but we will start working with you immediately on the ideal replacement so that you don’t have to spend an excessive amount of time without your complete smile.
