What constitutes an oral surgery?
Any tooth injury, pain or swelling in the jaw or mouth may require immediate attention. Loose or lost crowns or fillings can cause severe pain that shouldn't wait for treatment. Swelling, throbbing and sensitivity can indicate infected root pulp that requires an immediate root canal procedure before the infection becomes worse or spreads. Teeth that have been knocked out can be replanted, but the best chance for saving the tooth is treatment within 30 minutes of the event. For best results, try to reinsert the tooth or, if that doesn't work, store it in milk until you can get to our office.
