There is not a single type of dental emergency that you need to be worried about. There are several issues that can arise suddenly, put your smile at risk, and require treatment on short notice. Physical injuries are often of concern, as damaged enamel, or problems with a loose or lost tooth, can call for urgent care. However, you should also reach out if you start to experience pronounced discomfort without an obvious cause. At our Corona, CA dentist’s office, patients who experience dental emergencies can contact us to have the appropriate restorative dental work performed on short notice!
1. A Lingering Toothache
If you develop a toothache that does not go away quickly, it should be addressed by your dentist. The reason for your pain could be an infection, either because of an advanced cavity, or because of a tooth injury that proved to be more serious than you realized. If you do have an infection that needs treatment, we can bring you in and provide a root canal procedure to protect you against this problem.
2. Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Enamel
An injury that leaves a tooth chipped, cracked, or broken should be treated as soon as you can. The damage can worsen if you try to bite or chew with your injured tooth, which can lead to more problems as well as more pain. In addition, you can be vulnerable to an infection when your enamel is damaged. With a dental crown, your tooth can be restored and protected, which can restore your ability to bite and chew while also giving you back your confidence in your smile.
3. A Tooth That Has Been Knocked Out (Or Knocked Loose)
Few problems can upset patients like the loss of a tooth, or having a tooth that is knocked loose. If you act quickly, this problem can be addressed and you may be able to stop tooth loss from occurring. In a situation where a tooth cannot be saved, we can discuss prosthetic dental work with a dental implant to protect your bite function and also restore your appearance.
