What is your problem?
Treatment for severe toothache
An agonizing toothache is a very unpleasant event that always occurs out of place. It can quickly destroy all your plans, interfere with your work, sleep, eat, and generally spoil the mood. The problem requires immediate treatment, but to understand which one, you need to understand the reasons for its occurrence. Why does a toothache appear, and is it always associated with oral cavity diseases? Dr.Regina at Cedar Park Dental Wellness will give those answers.

Excruciating toothache usually occurs only in 2 circumstances, first, with pulpitis (inflammation of the tooth's nerve). It happens when the patient has not cured caries, and there comes a moment when the carious cavity becomes so deep that the infection penetrates the tooth cavity and reaches the nerve. Periodontitis is the second circumstance. When the infection penetrates beyond the tooth, it forms a purulent periodontal abscess at the roots' tops. Such an inflammatory process usually occurs either due to pulpitis not cured on time or after poor-quality filling of root canals in the past.

Painkiller medications are not the best solution for severe toothache. They only help you delay your visit to a dentist, but in some cases, even a potent pain reliever does not help. Therefore, if there is extreme pain or a pronounced swelling or fever, it is worth getting immediate help from your local emergency dentist in Cedar Park, even on the weekend or at night. Luckily, in most cases, 10-15 minutes is enough time for a dentist to relieve you from suffering.

What are the consequences of not treating a severe toothache?

In most cases, the appearance of a toothache indicates the development of pathology. Even if the pain decreases over time or disappears entirely, this does not mean that the problem is gone. On the contrary, the disease can spill over into a more severe stage and require a completely different treatment. And it's not just about the condition of your oral cavity. The teeth are in the brain's immediate vicinity, and your digestive system starts from your mouth - imagine where the infection might go. In medicine, there are cases when ordinary caries were fatal. That is why it is necessary to take care of an acute toothache without delay!

Bad teeth also can make your body vulnerable to outside infections and viruses. It reduces your immune system response because your body throws resources to fight inflammation, thereby depriving other areas. As a result, a common cold, flu, or even coronavirus can instantly cripple the body.

Conclusion

  • When a toothache develops, you should seek professional help as soon as possible, especially since modern dentistry has all the resources to carry out the treatment quickly, painlessly, and comfortably for the patient. Unfortunately, most medical emergency rooms cannot treat dental-related issues, so it is always better to find an emergency dentist near you. Luckily Cedar Park Dental Wellness is one of few dental offices that offer 24 hour emergency service in Austin and the surrounding areas.
Treating Broken or Cracked Teeth

Broken or cracked teeth Treatment in Cedar Park, TX

Even if you take the best care of your teeth and religiously visit your dentist, there is always a risk of mechanical damage. In this case, a tooth fracture always ends in a tooth's dislocation or a tooth crack.


What are the common causes of tooth fracture?

  • unsuccessful falls, fights, traumatic sports without appropriate means of protection, traffic accidents;
  • bad habits (cracking nuts with teeth, opening bottles, etc.);
  • hard food;
  • failed tooth extraction;
  • improper orthodontic treatment.

If teeth are not healthy enough, they can easily break even under minor mechanical influence (chewing, impact, falling, etc.). The decrease in strength can be a large volume of carious cavity or resorption (destruction) of the tooth root. Resorption can be internal and external. The inner one develops in the middle of the root canal; the outer one begins with the root's outer surface, which comes into contact with the bone. Resorption can occur due to prolonged chronic inflammation, chronic tooth injury, or improper orthodontic treatment.


Sometimes the destruction of the root of teeth is due to the presence of cysts. For example, periodontal (lateral) tooth cyst in a long chronic course can lead to resorption of the tooth root's lateral surface.


What are the symptoms of tooth fracture?

Patients usually complain of pain when chewing food or drinking hot or cold liquids. In case of damage to the crown part of the tooth (pulp chamber), the tooth sometimes turns red or purple, and you can see a part of the pulp in the fractured area. A root fracture will cause sharp pain. The gums in the root projection can be red and swollen, and gum abscesses can occur.


What are the common types of tooth fracture?

  • a fracture of the crown part of the tooth;
  • a tooth root fracture;
  • combined fracture (crown and tooth root).

How to treat tooth fracture?

  • A dental filling, inlay/onlay, and even a dental crown are excellent for fixing small cracks in the tooth's crown part.
  • Root fracture treatment depends on the fracture level and the tooth pulp condition. In most cases, a root canal treatment and a crown will be the answer.
  • Dental implant placement can treat complete vertical fracture of the tooth.

Conclusion.

It is hard to prevent dental trauma and injuries due to accidents, but you should always remember that poorly maintained oral health will lead to more severe damages. Take extra caution when biting and chewing hard and solid food, do not use your teeth to open, cut, and hold things. When engaging in traumatic sports, observe safety rules, and use a protective mouthguard.

Contact Dr.Yunusov at Cedar Park Dental Wellness immediately if you suspect a tooth fracture, even if it does not hurt. Timely examination and x-ray can save you from losing a tooth.
