Soft Tissue Injury
Damage to the soft tissues such as the cheeks, gums, tongue or lips can result in pain, bleeding and swelling. Mild soft tissue damage will often cure on its own. Persistent bleeding or pain may require professional treatment.
Bitten Lip or Tongue
A bitten tongue or lip can be a painful annoyance. If you have a deep cut or bite on your tongue, lip cheek, or other soft tissue:
- At first, you should clean the injured area thoroughly with cool water.
- Then, apply cold compresses to decrease any swelling or pain.
- If bleeding has not mostly stopped after 15 minutes, we recommend visiting the emergency room, as you may require stitches.
An abscessed tooth also needs emergency dental care, depending on the pain that persists.
Abscessed teeth happen when tooth decay and cavities go untreated. They may also be caused by previous injury to the tooth, a crack in the tooth.
The first signs of an abscessed tooth are a pain and toothache when chewing or biting down. Another symptom is a swelling of the jaw.
A dentist bores out the decay, then flushes the root with a root canal treatment. It will clear the area of the abscess.
In the situation of a broken jaw, at first, you should go to your local emergency room. You can use a cold compress to reduce any inconvenience you might feel. If you have ache lost teeth as well, contact us only after your physician has cleared you.
Oral Bleeding and Swollen Gums
Oral bleeding and swollen gums symptoms are signs of gum disease. They should be taken gravely to prevent common oral health problems. The disease causes gums to retreat. It can even weaken teeth and cause them to fall out. If your gums are prone to bleed, visit our dental office and we will immediately diagnose your problem.
