Dental implants come in different heights, sizes, and types. Your implant dentist will determine the best option for you based on your specific needs. The main types of implants are endosteal and subperiosteal implants.
Endosteal implants are made of titanium and look like small screws. The dental implants are placed in your jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are placed under your gums on or above your jawbone. These implants are used for patients who do not have sufficient jawbone and cannot undergo a bone augmentation.
You should consult an Orlando emergency dentist if you have persistent and intense tooth pain. Most people will try and control toothache at home, but the pain will persist if there is inflammation of the nerves. Decay is often the culprit of most toothaches, but an Orlando emergency dentist will identify and treat any other root cause.
Accidents and injuries cause more than five million teeth to be knocked out each year. Loose teeth can also indicate localized infection, which our emergency dentists can quickly identify and treat. Emergency dental services can save and replant a knocked-out tooth, as long as you act quickly and consult the nearest dentist.
To boost the chances of saving your tooth, pick it up from the accident scene by the chewing surface and avoid touching the crown. You can rinse it in plain water if it is dirty but don't place it in a cloth.
It is best to keep the tooth moist, and you can try to re-insert it back to its socket or keep it in a container with milk. An experienced emergency dentist can save your tooth even if it has been outside your mouth for an hour or more.
Severe teeth fractures demand an emergency dentist's attention since there may be damage to the inside of the tooth. Call our office immediately if you have lost a significant part of your tooth and are in intense pain.
Our specialists will recommend an X-ray to determine the extent of the fracture. Some patients only need a crown or filling, while others require a root canal to treat damaged soft tissue.
At Avalon Commons Dental Care, we emphasize on proactive and preventative dental care. Most people ignore minor bleeding of the gums after they brush, but this could be an early indication of gum disease. If left untreated, the issue could escalate to severe bleeding or swelling.
We will urgently schedule any patient with unexplained gum bleeding and look for the root cause. Bleeding gums may be caused by brushing too hard, incorrect flossing, nutritional deficiencies, and certain drugs. Our treatment also includes preventing gum bleeding as part of our mission towards restoring excellent oral health for Orlando residents.
Our emergency dental services include relieving patients of the pain and swelling that accompanies abscess. This bacterial infection commonly occurs in and around the root or between the tooth and gum. The abscess should be treated urgently because the infection can spread to the jaw and the rest of the body.
We will customize our emergency treatment to suit your situation. Treatment may involve draining the abscess, root canal, and antibiotic therapy. We may remove the affected teeth in severe cases, so it is essential to contact us at the earliest indications of tooth decay.
Having a swollen jaw is uncomfortable, especially when accompanied by stiffness and tenderness. Simple activities like chewing food will often become a chore, and you will need an emergency dentist to get you back in shape.
Swollen jaws can be caused by bacteria infections, salivary gland infections, injury, and tooth abscess. Call us immediately if you notice a swell in your jaw for emergency treatment.
Many of our patients who schedule emergency appointments have lost their filing or crown. Refrain from using temporary measures like glues to restore crowns and filing, as we can schedule you to see a dentist right away.
An emergency dentist will use a combination of tests, therapies, and treatments to relieve your symptoms and treat your issues. The first thing our Orlando emergency dentists will do is make you comfortable, and we may use dental anesthetics to relieve your pain.
Our dental services include:
Dental emergencies may be unplanned, but you can stay prepared for when they happen. You can furnish a first aid kit with a handkerchief, gauze, acetaminophen for pain, and a small container to keep a fallen tooth. Include the number of an emergency dentist near you.
Time is of the essence during dental emergencies as it can worsen and cause more health problems. If you have severe pain or oral trauma, you call us during our office hours to be scheduled for emergency appointments. If the emergency cannot wait for our regular working hours, you should call 911 immediately for urgent medical assistance.
Dental accidents are unpredictable, but you can reduce your chances of being in one with precautions like:
