Experiencing a Dental Emergency?
If you need immediate dental care,
please call 402-840-9783.
A dental emergency may result in pain, severe pressure, embarrassment, or frustration. Situations that can lead to a emergency dental include:
Broken or Fractured Teeth
This occurs when you experience trauma to the tooth resulting in a chipped or split tooth. Depending on the severity of the break, there is a chance the tooth could be saved. Otherwise, the tooth may have to be removed.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling
Inflammation can happen for many reasons, one of which is simply due to not flossing and brushing daily. When the leftover food and liquid consumed throughout the day lingers in the mouth, the sugars and food can start to affect the gums negatively. When the gums are exposed to this, the gums begin to redden and swell. As time progresses, the symptoms can intensify and alter the facial structure due to the swelling. It is important to visit the dentist if you’re experiencing swelling to your gums.
Wisdom teeth can lead to pain when chewing, swelling gums, or shifting teeth. Wisdom teeth are unnecessary teeth that often crowd your mouth and other teeth as they come in. They can also be difficult to clean. It is usually best to have wisdom teeth removed.
Lost Crown or Filling
Most of the time, a filling or a crown falls out while eating or chewing gum. If no treatment is performed, the tooth with a missing crown or filling will become more sensitive or infected as debris and bacteria come in contact with it. Teeth also have the ability to shift if a crown is left out of the mouth for too long.
Knocked Out Tooth or Teeth
When a tooth has been knocked out or loosened, damage takes place in the mouth, surrounding tissues, and the nerves of the tooth. It is possible for those damaged tissues to support the tooth again if the tooth is placed back in its socket quick enough after the incident.
