Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

If you’ve experienced a dental emergency, such as a broken tooth, sudden toothache, or laceration on your gums, emergency dentistry can minimize the damage and keep your smile healthy.

Emergency dentistry services are many of the same used in general and restorative dentistry, but the team at Encino Dental Esthetics performs them in an urgent setting, ensuring that you get the care you need when you need it the most.

Their highly skilled professionals know how to care for emergency situations and will make sure to keep your smile looking great and functioning optimally. The practice even offers same-day appointments so you can get your treatment as soon as possible.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any condition requiring immediate attention and involves your oral tissues, including your teeth, gums, lips, tongue, and cheeks.

Dental emergencies come in a variety of forms. They happen often in car crashes and sports injuries, but they can also occur in seemingly harmless situations, like biting down on a piece of hard food awkwardly.

Some of the more common types of dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Loose tooth
  • Broken, chipped, or fractured tooth
  • Loose or dislodged filling
  • Cut or tear on your lips, gums, or cheeks
  • Foreign object stuck in your gums
  • Abscess

If you’re not sure if your situation requires emergency treatment, don’t hesitate to call Encino Dental Esthetics. The friendly team members will be happy to talk with you about your dental concern and recommend emergency treatment or a regular appointment.

What steps should I take in a dental emergency?

Make your way to the Encino Dental Esthetics office as soon as possible. Depending on your condition, getting treatment quickly could mean the difference between saving and losing your tooth. The practice offers same-day appointments so that you can get your treatment as soon as possible.

If you’ve knocked out your tooth entirely, try to bring it with you to your appointment. When transporting it, make sure to avoid touching the roots, since this can damage the tooth. You can also prevent the roots from drying out by keeping it in a glass of milk or saliva.
