If you have received a facial injury, and are still suffering from pains within your mouth, you could be suffering from a dislodged tooth. Such dental injuries should never be left without treatment, and should be seen by your local Wheaton endodontist
as soon as possible for immediate emergency care. Dislodged teeth can easily become infected or lost entirely without care from an experienced professional. For endodontic care you can count on when you need it most, be sure to call upon our team of experts at the offices of Linda Ricks, DMD, MS, PC.
Wheaton Endodontic Care
Dislodged teeth sound to most as if they have fallen out of your smile, but they can in fact be pushed from impact and injury either outside or inside your gum line. If you are feeling any pain in your mouth after following an injury to your face, you should seek care as soon as possible. Over the counter pain killers and ice packs are recommended for pain and swelling until you are able to receive treatment from your trusted Wheaton endodontist
. If you are able to visit the doctor immediately after your injury occurs, our team can in most cases re-position your tooth back inside its socket for those that have become partially pushed out of place, and stabilize it once more into its natural position. Care of dislodged teeth is most commonly planned around the current health and strength of the pulp within your tooth. Often times patients will wait for the pain to become unbearable, which mean the damage in your smile has worsened into a root canal infection. If this occurs our team will need to provide treatment for the roots of your tooth to take out the infected matter, and place a permanent filling in its place to seal the canal off from infection. In many cases our team utilizes a medication in the form of calcium hydroxide placed inside the tooth to insure that the last traces of your root canal infection are removed for a healthy smile.
