Dental injuries tend to happen very abruptly, whether they lead to a chipped tooth, a painful fracture, or even the loss of one or more teeth entirely. In these scary situations, it’s important to stay calm and contact White Clay Dental Associates for further assistance as soon as you possibly can. Here are some tips on how to best manage your case in the interim:
If good brushing and flossing habits aren’t maintained over time, patients can start to develop excessive pain and sensitivity in specific areas of the mouth. The most likely cause of this is an infection that’s developed beneath the enamel’s surface. Alternatively, there may be something stuck between the gums near the tooth, such as a piece of stray food. We recommend that patients floss and rinse their mouths thoroughly to rule out the latter possibility before contacting our Newark, DE office. If the discomfort persists, please reach out to us right away – we can provide care to prevent any further spreading of the infection and ideally rescue the tooth, too.

While helping patients maintain a healthy smile with their own natural teeth is a chief goal for our dentists, there are certain circumstances that necessitate tooth extraction. Some patients having orthodontic treatment need to have one or more teeth removed. Others have teeth that have succumbed to severe decay or injury, while others need to have their wisdom teeth removed. At White Clay Dental Associates, we use the latest dental technology to extract teeth painlessly.
