A severe toothache is a sharp, intense pain or discomfort in or around a tooth or multiple teeth that can be caused by a variety of dental problems. This type of toothache can be constant, intermittent, or triggered by certain foods, drinks, or temperature changes.

If you experience a severe toothache, it is important to seek prompt dental care as it may indicate a serious underlying dental problem that requires immediate attention. In the meantime, you can try to alleviate the pain by rinsing your mouth with warm salt water, using over-the-counter pain relievers, and avoiding hot, cold, or sugary foods and drinks.

A broken or chipped tooth refers to a tooth that has been partially or completely fractured or damaged due to trauma or injury, biting on a hard object, or weakening of the tooth structure. A broken or chipped tooth can cause pain or sensitivity, depending on the severity of the damage, and may also affect the appearance and functionality of the tooth.

If you have a broken or chipped tooth, it is important to
see your dentist as soon as possible to prevent further damage or infection. 

A knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency that requires immediate attention. When a tooth is knocked out, it is important to act quickly to increase the chances of saving the tooth. Emergency dental care for a knocked-out tooth includes the following steps:

  1. Retrieve the tooth: Locate the tooth and pick it up by the crown (the part that is normally visible in the mouth). Avoid touching the root of the tooth as this can damage the delicate tissues that are necessary for re-implantation.

  2. Rinse the tooth: Gently rinse the tooth with water or milk to remove any dirt or debris. Do not use soap or chemicals, and do not scrub the tooth.

  3. Attempt to re-implant the tooth: If possible, re-implant the tooth back into its socket. Gently push the tooth into place with your fingers, being careful not to damage the root.

  4. Keep the tooth moist: If you are unable to re-implant the tooth, keep it moist by placing it in a container of milk, saliva, or a specialized tooth preservation solution. Do not let the tooth dry out.

  5. Seek immediate dental care: Contact an emergency dentist as soon as possible. The dentist may be able to save the tooth if you act quickly.

Remember, time is of the essence when it comes to a knocked-out tooth. Seek emergency dental care right away for the best chance of saving the tooth.

A loose or missing filling or crown refers to a dental restoration that has become dislodged or fallen out of the tooth. Fillings and crowns are common dental restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth and to restore their function and appearance.

A loose or missing filling or crown can cause discomfort, sensitivity, and expose the tooth to further damage or decay.

If you have a loose or missing filling or crown, it is important to see your dentist as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the tooth and to restore its function and appearance.

A gum infection, also known as gingivitis, is an inflammation of the gums caused by the buildup of plaque on the teeth. Symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen, and bleeding gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, which is a more severe form of gum disease that can lead to tooth loss.

A tooth infection, on the other hand, is an infection in the tooth’s pulp or nerve caused by a bacterial infection. Symptoms of a tooth infection include tooth pain, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling of the gums or face, and fever.

If you are experiencing symptoms of either a gum or tooth infection, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Swollen jaw or face refers to a condition where there is an abnormal enlargement of the jaw or face due to the accumulation of fluid, inflammation, or other underlying conditions.

Swelling of the jaw or face can be caused by a variety of factors, including tooth or gum infections, sinus infections, trauma or injury, salivary gland disorders, cysts or tumors, and allergic reactions. It can also be a symptom of more serious medical conditions such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, or infections.

The swelling may be accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, tenderness, redness, warmth, difficulty chewing or speaking, fever, and difficulty breathing.

If you experience swelling of the jaw or face, it is important to seek medical attention immediately to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.
