Types of Dental Emergencies
- Toothaches: Have you been hit in the mouth or face? Do you see signs of swelling? Broken teeth, cavities, and fillings are many causes of tooth pains. Do not ignore toothaches because they can become serious. If a toothache occurs, it’s best to see our emergency dentist right away. In the meantime, you can take some pain relievers (e.g., Tylenol or ibuprofen) to temporarily reduce the pain. Make sure to never put aspirin or painkillers against gums near the aching tooth, as this may cause burning to the tissue.
- Broken tooth: Broken teeth with small cracks or fractures are often difficult to detect due to minimal pain. However, these small cracks and fractures can lead to serious symptoms affecting the nerve. Teeth with large pieces broken off can become very painful due to internal damage or exposed nerves. Contact our Studio City dentist right away if you notice any of these symptoms. In addition, ignoring indications of a fracture can allow the condition to worsen severely, even to the point of permanent damage. We recommend you to save any pieces of teeth and apply gauze to the area if you experience any bleeding. Placing a cold compress to the outside can help with swelling or pain.
- Lost crown: Another common dental emergency is a lost crown. If your crown has fallen off, be sure to make an appointment with us as soon as possible. Bring the crown with you when you go to your appointment. If possible, try to slip the crown back over the tooth. You can use dental cement or toothpaste to hold the crown in place until we’re able to assist you.
General Rule of Thumb: If you have swelling in the mouth or jaw, or teeth that are painful, bleeding, and loose, it’s probably an emergency. Dental emergencies should always be taken seriously to prevent any further damages. That’s why our emergency dentist in Studio City is available 24/7 at our beautiful, peaceful location.
Why Is an Emergency Dentist Important?
Dental emergencies can happen anywhere, anytime. Regardless of the type and degree, when a dental emergency occurs, you must visit and consult with our emergency dentist right away. All dental emergencies should be taken seriously to decrease the risk of future, permanent damages.
