Our mouth and teeth work hard for us. Consider how much they endure day after day. It’s not surprising that occasionally problems occur.
As an urgent care dental practice, we are uniquely qualified to treat a broad range of oral problems.
Here are three of the most frequent:
1. Abscessed Tooth
An abscess is a serious infection accompanied by pus, pain, and swelling. It transpires deep down in the root of a tooth. The infection can destroy tissue and even bone it left untreated.
A root canal procedure is used to remove an abscessed tooth root.
2. Knocked-out Tooth
This is the classic dental emergency. We hope it never happens to you.
But if it does, follow these vital directions:
- Pick up the tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) NOT the root.
- If it’s dirty, carefully rinse the tooth with warm water, being careful not to remove any tissue attached.
- Put the tooth back in the socket promptly (if possible). Gently set it into the socket. Bite down slowly and carefully. If it’s a small child that has suffered the injury, don’t risk swallowing or choking. Put the tooth in milk. Don’t use tap water.
- Make sure the tooth stays moist at all times.

3. Painful Wisdom Teeth
Whether wisdom teeth have erupted or not, they can cause a lot of oral problems. They move around and bump into other teeth. They can be challenging to clean and increase the risk of tooth decay. They can become painful and inflamed. At Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center, we treat wisdom teeth-related issues.
If you still have your wisdom teeth and want to avoid future problems, come into our office for a dental exam and consultation. We can take an X-ray and advise you on a course of action.
