A dental abscess is a buildup of pus that forms in the gums or bone structures of the mouth. They can form below the surface of the gums, or appear as an growth protruding from the gums that may or may not cause pain. This type of dental infection can cause severe damage to gum tissue or teeth and usually requires treatment in the form of antibiotics or dentist intervention. When left untreated, an abscess can become fluid filled pocket of tissue known as a cyst and may require more aggressive treatment. Abscesses are common in individuals that have bad oral hygiene where tooth decay is allowed to run rampant. If you believe your tooth ache may be caused by a dental abscess, seek immediate treatment before the condition worsens.
Large Cavity or Dental Caries
If cavities or dental caries form in a tooth and are allowed to grow the point of reaching the tooth’s pulpy nerve, it can be extremely painful and requires immediate treatment to relieve the pain. Dental caries that are early in their development may not be painful at all, making them harder to discover without a dental examination or X-ray, but the tooth may be more sensitive to hot or cold food. The typical treatment for a severe cavity is a root canal or extraction of the affected tooth if the decay is too widespread to save the tooth. Visiting your dentist often and maintaining a rigorous dental hygiene routine are the best defense against the formation of large cavities. Schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning or examination today at Carson & Carson, DDS.
Sensitive teeth or dentin hypersensitivity can be caused my many underlying dental issues, but typically affect teeth where the roots or dentin layer have been exposed. Sensitive teeth can be extraordinarily receptive to exposure to hot & cold air, and acidic or sweet food. Hypersensitivity is most often caused by the erosion of the outer, protective enamel layer of the tooth or gum recession that leaves the tooth root exposed. In cases with light sensitivity, it may be possible to treat the hypersensitivity with a desensitizing toothpaste or fluoride gel that helps to rebuild enamel. In more severe cases where the tooth root has been exposed, a gum graft may be utilized to cover the sensitive root layer. For extreme cases where other treatments are not effectively reducing the sensitivity, a root canal or tooth extraction can relieve the issue.
Tips for Dealing with a Dental Emergency
There are some things that you can do immediately to reduce pain and the possibility of infection stemming from an oral emergency:
– If your tooth has been knocked out, clean it gently in warm water, removing any dirt or tissue.
– Rinse your mouth with warm water to remove dirt or excess tissue.
– If you experience swelling or other facial trauma, apply a cold compress to the area.
– DO NOT TAKE ASPIRIN. Aspirin is an anti-coagulate and can lead to excess bleeding. If you are in pain, take acetaminophen (like Tylenol).
