Tooth pain may be due to a large cavity into the nerve, mobility, fracture, trauma,infection or inflammation of pulp tissue.
Symptoms: Constant severe pain and pressure, swelling of the gum and sensitivity to touch.
Result: Constant pain whole day and disturbance in sleep during night and swelling at involved area.
Rx Needed: See your Emergency dentist Garland Tx immediately for a thorough examination. Once the problematic tooth is isolated, Sometimes removing the irritating agent will solve the problem and sometimes restoring a lost tooth structure due to trauma or a root canal treatment to remove the infected pulp tissue will bring relief while saving the tooth. Untreated, the pain could become worse.
Problem: The pulp tissue inside a tooth is acutely infected, inflamed and dying. This is generally in response to decay coming very close to or entering the nerve.
Treatment Needed: It is important to treat an abscess. If left untreated, the abscess can damage the adjacent teeth/gums, lead to bone loss, be a continuing source of infection, and even be life threatening. To find an abscess, we complete a thorough examination and a series of tests – including x-rays. An infected tooth will never heal on its own, much like an infection around a splinter will not heal until the splinter is removed. To treat and remove the infection, a root canal is completed if the tooth can be saved/ restored. In many cases (especially on back teeth) a crown/cap is required to save the tooth after a root canal is completed. If the tooth is not restorable and can’t be saved, an extraction is required.

What should you do about dental injuries?
Following an accident involving the face/mouth:
- Locate any missing teeth or fragments of teeth.
- Only touch the crown of the tooth – the part usually visible in the mouth.
- Do not wash or rinse the fragment or tooth with anything, even water.
- Store the fragment or tooth in milk, if possible.
- Seek advice from a dentist immediately.
- Check the teeth by looking, or using a finger.
A tooth that has been knocked out, or even a broken tooth, has a better chance of being successfully re-implanted if this is done as soon as possible (ideally within half an hour).

- It may be possible to re-implant the tooth if help is sought quickly, the bone is not too badly damaged and the patient is in a fit state for treatment.
- Milk teeth are not re-implanted, as there is a risk of harming the permanent tooth underneath.
- Soft tissue damage may require stitches.

- A splint is often required to hold a loosened or re-implanted tooth in place.
- A tetanus booster and/or antibiotics may be required.

Wisdom tooth emergency:
Wisdom teeth and Pericoronitis are some of the primary causes of serious dental emergencies. The wisdom tooth or all the wisdom teeth do not always emerge (or erupt) into the mouth correctly due to lack of space. Part of the wisdom tooth remains covered by the gum, which results in food and bacteria can get trapped underneath. This causes the wisdom tooth to become infected.
Mouth infections such as Pericoronitis caused by wisdom teeth can be treated with antibiotics, but the infection will reoccur unless the wisdom teeth removal is performed.
Treatment of wisdom teeth at Smiline Dental Texas Emergency Garland:
During a consultation involving x-rays or OPG (panoramic x-ray) and examination, the dental surgeon can determine which wisdom teeth or wisdom tooth will be, or are, functional, and which ones need to be removed. In many cases all four wisdom teeth will need to be removed.
The wisdom teeth removal at smiline Dental Texas Garland Tx commonly involves an incision to open the gum, and sometimes a small portion of the bone may need to be removed to provide access for the wisdom teeth removal. The wisdom teeth may also need to be divided into segments so it can be removed safely and easily. Perfect wisdom teeth technique and a lot of experience is a must for these surgical procedures.
