A Badly Damaged Tooth May Need Emergency Dental Care

Posted .

Traveling for work or play comes with its own natural ups, and downs. Even if the stress of being away from home is minimal, you still want to make the most out of your downtime.

Suffering an accidental chipped or fractured tooth can certainly take away from the experience and could even cause significant discomfort. Even if the damaged tooth isn’t overly sensitive, the change in the natural dental structure could leave it susceptible to a more severe fracture in the coming days.

If you are currently traveling in the Mesa, Arizona, area and you are having an issue with one of your teeth, it’s best to have it examined as soon as possible by a dentist like Dr. Ali Nia. Putting off professional treatment until you get back home could put you at risk for more severe complications.

Our dentist can work quickly to assess the severity of the damage to the tooth to determine the most effective mode of treatment. If the area of fractured tooth enamel is relatively small, and the dentin or pulp layers within the tooth have not been damaged he might be able to restore the tooth and prevent further problems by applying a simple dental filling.

The material our dentist selects for treating the affected area may be influenced by how prevalent it will be when you smile. A tooth located in the front of the mouth might need a composite dental filling, which can be designed to seamlessly match the rest of the natural tooth enamel.

If you are currently traveling through the Mesa, Arizona, area and you have chipped or fractured one of your teeth, you should call 480-730-0500 to have it examined and treated at Mesa Dental Care.
