  • Infection
  • Gum Disease

2. Trauma

  • a. Broken or chipped teeth could be because of the following:
    • accident or trauma to face
    • biting something hard
    • using teeth to open things
  • b. Avulsed Tooth (knocked-out tooth)
  • Find the tooth, avoid touching the root of the tooth, and make sure to keep the patient calm.
  • Reposition If the tooth is dirty, wash it under cold water for 10 seconds and reposition the tooth in the socket. Bite on cotton to hold the tooth in place.
      If repositioning is not possible, then do the following:

    • Milk: store in milk if repositioning is not possible.
    • Hanks balanced solution: if available, store the tooth in this solution.
    • In between the cheeks, teeth can also be transported in the mouth between the molars and the cheeks. But have to be very careful to make sure patient do not swallow, especially young kids
  • Avoid storing in water.
  • Seek immediate emergency dental treatment.

3. Swelling

  • Abscess could be because of an infected nerve, which proceeds further into the bone or gums infection.
  • Space infection spreads to spaces on the face. Sometimes it can also be life-threatening, especially around the eye and neck area.

4. Lost Filling

It happens when decay developed underneath the existing filling. The exposed tooth tissue can be sensitive to pressure, air, or hot and cold temperatures.

5. Dislodged Crown

It may happen due to failure of bonding of cement or due to sports injury.
Once the crown is dislodged, the tooth might become sensitive due to exposure of dentin

6. Loose Tooth

  • Injury to the teeth: Healthy teeth are strong, but injury to face can damage the teeth and surrounding tissue. Anyone suspected of having an injury to the teeth should see the dentist immediately.
  • Periodontitis is the inflammation of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It damages the soft tissues and erodes the bone that supports your teeth, which can cause your teeth to loosen. Regular dental hygiene appointments can prevent this from happening.
  • Clenching: Clenching the teeth during times of stress or grinding them at night can wear down the tissues and loosen the teeth.A dentist may be able to detect the problem before the teeth are permanently damaged.

7. Broken Denture

Dentures can break due to general wear and tear over time, or in some instances, they fall out and break. We encourage you to gather any piece of your dentures that has broken off, including any of the wires and tooth or teeth. Please do not continue wearing damaged dentures.

8. Trismus or difficulty opening the mouth, can happen due to:

  • Third molar infection
  • TMJ pathology
  • Muscle spasm because of opening the jaw for a period of time or having a needle pass through a muscle
  • Fractures

9. Loose implant

It can be due to a loose dental crown, bone loss around the area, or peri-implantitis. In the event of a loose implant, please contact the dentist immediately. The consequences of leaving it untreated can be life-threatening.
