Why Fevers Are So Dangerous When They Come with a Toothache
Posted on 7/20/2018 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
When talking about a toothache, the thing that most people worry about is the pain. They take care to avoid the tooth that hurts when they eat or drink. They hope that the toothache will go away. They do not always look for one of the more dangerous symptoms that can accompany a toothache. A fever is a sign that the body is fighting something. If you have a fever and a toothache, you need to know how they are related and what the dangers are. Toothaches are TreatableBefore finding out why a fever with a toothache is dangerous, it is important to understand that toothaches are treatable. A toothache is the result of a cavity in the tooth. The cavity fills with bacteria and that causes the pain. The solution is to drill to the cavity and fill in the tooth. The dangers from the toothache are gone. The longer a cavity goes untreated, the more problems arise. Gum disease is one of the dangers. Another danger is an infection or an abscess. These are the things that can lead to bigger problems. The Signs of an InfectionAn infection in the teeth or gums comes with symptoms. There is pain and swelling. Often times a fever accompanies the infection. A low-grade fever is not dangerous, but it is a warning sign. It is not the fever that kills people. It is the infection that can spread throughout the body. If the infection gets worse, it can actually kill a person. So, if a fever with a toothache is a sign of infection, and because an infection can kill you, it is something that is very dangerous. It is possible that people can ignore the pain, but the fever should trigger them to act. If you have a fever and a toothache, contact our office immediately. Do not wait until it gets worse. You can also contact us if you have any other questions about your oral health....

Options for Impacted Teeth Other Than Extraction
Posted on 6/13/2018 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Tooth impaction occurs when you have a tooth that's stuck between two other teeth, your bone, or a piece of soft tissue - all things that can prevent your tooth from properly erupting. When you have an impacted tooth, you shouldn't believe that your only option is extraction or braces. Nevertheless, you really do need to have it treated by Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery so that it doesn't result in additional dental problems in the future. For instance, when left untreated, these teeth will push against the other teeth or bone near it, which will result in the pain that's associated with this issue. Options for Treating Impacted TeethAlthough extraction is a popular way of treating impacted teeth, it isn't the only way of doing so. There are several other options that are also available here. Expanders will make more room in your mouth so your teeth can erupt properly. This may take a few months to work though. There are also two forms of forced eruption commonly used. Open forced eruption utilizes a full set of braces after surgery for when the problem is noticed later in development. There's also closed forced eruption. This resembles open forced eruption, but the primary difference is that the braces are placed on the impacted tooth itself. Many oral surgeons believe closed forced eruption delivers the most aesthetically pleasing results. When none of these other options work, surgical repositioning may be necessary. If you have an impacted tooth, make an appointment with our office. We'll start by taking some x-rays of your teeth to see exactly what's going on with your impacted tooth. Once we have a better idea here we'll discuss your options with you. Rest assured there's nothing to fear here since extraction is never your only option. So, call Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery today at Centennial Hills: (702) 660-5574, Summerlin: (702) 660-5576 and let's work it out....
