Dentist in Tucson, AZ helps patients find relief from pain with tooth restorations
The only thing worse than tooth pain or a dental problem is one that pops up at the worst possible time. Whether it's a chipped tooth after taking a stumble during a weekend hike or a waking up with a throbbing jaw the day of an important meeting, it's comforting to know that you have a dentist you can trust.
Dr. Jeanne Krizman has been providing expert care to Tucson, AZ-area patients for many years. Here she discusses many of the emergency problems and treatments that bring patients to the office:
Cracked tooth – Maybe you bit into something hard or fell and hit your teeth. Whatever the cause, a cracked tooth can be painful immediately or over time when you eat something hot or cold. The process for treating a cracked or broken tooth typically includes dental bonding, a composite resin, which the dentist uses to rebuild the tooth into the proper shape. If you're in pain prior to the procedure, you can take an over-the-counter pain medication like acetaminophen. You should also keep any jagged edges covered with wax or sugarless gum in order to avoid cutting the inside of your cheek or lips.
Lost tooth – If you've knocked your tooth out completely, it's important to receive treatment quickly. If you still have the tooth, you can place it back in the socket or keep it submerged in milk or saltwater. In some cases, the tooth can still be saved. If the tooth can't be saved, Dr. Krizman will talk with you about replacement tooth options.
Intense pain – Throbbing and intense pain can be quite alarming. While some over-the-counter medications can numb the pain, they can't fix the underlying problem. Only a dentist can determine why you're feeling pain and provide the treatment to fix the problem.
