What is a dental emergency?
Are you unsure if you are experiencing a dental emergency?
You may be experiencing a dental emergency if you are experiencing sharp and shooting pain, have a knocked out tooth, loose teeth, or have a broken or damaged dental restoration. While care may not seem to be immediately necessary, it is important to seek professional dental help as soon as you can.
Treating a dental emergency promptly can allow for more conservative treatment options and prevent further damage to your smile. Call our office right away if you are having a dental emergency. Our highly trained front desk staff can often help talk you through what to do.
What if I’m experiencing sudden and intense pain?
If you are experiencing sharp or shooting pain in your tooth or jaw call your dentist. Tooth decay and root canal infections are common causes of tooth pain. In rare cases, an abscess causes tooth pain. An abscess is a serious medical condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated by a dentist. Prompt treatment can help prevent further dental issues and will help to relieve your discomfort.
What if my tooth gets knocked out and lost?
Remain calm and call our Claremont dentist office. You can apply a clean, damp cloth to the site of the lost tooth to stop any bleeding. If you can locate the tooth, handle it only by the crown (top of the tooth). Try to allow the root structure to remain attached.
Place the tooth in a glass of milk or your own saliva. Bring the tooth with you to the dentist. The dentist can possibly save the tooth if it’s seen in enough time.
What if my dental crown breaks or falls out?
If a dental crown, filling, or other dental restoration breaks, becomes loose, or falls out, it is essential to call our dentist office as soon as possible. An emergency visit allows us to replace or repair the restoration. Ignoring the issue can lead to infection and even tooth loss. If you can locate the restoration bring the piece with you to the dentist. NEVER attempt to reattach the filling or crown by yourself.
If you think you’re experiencing a dental emergency, call our dentist office immediately: (909) 277-6919. For all other appointments, call us or schedule an appointment online. We’re ready to help you with any dental concerns you have.
