Teeth may break for a variety of reasons including:
Treatment is dependent upon the degree of the break, how much tooth is broken and how much remains. Most teeth can have treatment to help save them, but a thorough assessment is required.
Gum pain can arise from a variety of causes, and maybe the result of something relatively minor (for example trapped food) to something that may require active treatment (periodontal abscess). It is important to arrange an appointment immediately as often this pain may escalate and may very well be the initial signs of an underlying problem.
Treatment is dependent upon the cause, but can vary from debridement of the area and antibiotics to specialist periodontal treatments.
Facial swellings are usually a sign of a severe infection. Pus has formed and has entered the space between tissues. This may or may not be accompanied by pain, but it is very important to see a dentist straight away to assess the cause, and start any appropriate treatment. Left untreated, swellings may cause hospitalization, especially if they spread to the neck region and start to cause difficulties in breathing.
Treatment may include drainage of the swelling if appropriate (either by a small incision, or by making a small hole in the tooth) and the use of antibiotics. Sometimes, if appropriate and if clinically feasible, the offending tooth may be removed.
"I had a sudden toothache on one tooth. The gums are slightly swollen. I feel the tenderness when I touch it. After a few days it subsided and I ignored it. A few days later, I had the same toothache. What can I do about this?"
Sudden excruciating pain or toothache may indicate the deep spread of decay in the tooth. Often, root canal treatment is necessary. If you note mild symptoms on the teeth, a check-up with your dentist will help prevent a bigger problem from occurring.
This can be particularly distressing for anyone unfortunate enough to experience it. A full examination is required to ascertain likely causes. Dental infections can cause radiating pain, such that it is difficult for the patient to pinpoint where the pain is coming from.
Once the source of the pain has been diagnosed, appropriate treatment may be started to relieve your pain.
On rare occasions, you may be suffering from a pain of non-dental origin which may require referral to a specialist for further assessment.
