Any day can be interrupted with a dental emergency, especially if you have children. However, adults can have them if they fall and hit their mouths or wake up with a severe toothache. Our dentist at Marconi Dental Aesthetics offers emergency dentistry services to patients in and around Pasadena, TX.
Permanent teeth should never be loose. If they are, it’s because of disease or trauma. If you have loose teeth, especially if there is bleeding around the gums, you should see a dentist in Pasadena, TX, as soon as possible. Unless you’ve had a trauma that caused the looseness, then it could be gum disease, and starting treatment as soon as possible can save your tooth/teeth.
If you or your child experiences trauma and it knocks out teeth, you need to visit our dentist at Marconi Dental Aesthetics for emergency dentistry in Pasadena, TX. If you have the teeth, bring them with you, and the dentist may be able to put them back and save them. If possible, rinse off the dirt and debris from the teeth and place them back in their sockets on your way to the dentist.
If you or someone in your family has a severe toothache and you see a small bulge of pus on the gum, that’s an abscess. An abscess is an emergency because the infection can get into the bloodstream and affect your organs. The dentist will assess the abscess to determine if it needs lancing, and she may give you a prescription for medication to start clearing the infection.
Generally, if your teeth hurt and are bleeding, you need to visit an emergency dentist. Our dentist at Marconi Dental Aesthetics can provide you or your family with emergency dentistry in Pasadena, TX.
