Some oral health problems can call for treatment with minimal delay. If you are worried that you might lose a tooth, or if you are in a significant amount of discomfort, you can be eager to see a dentist as soon as possible. Our Temecula, CA dentist’s office recognizes that these problems do arise, and we are prepared to provide emergency dental appointments for our patients. We can work with you to see you as soon as possible and determine what might be wrong. Once the problem is identified, we can work out the right restorative dental procedure and send you away with a healthy smile. Emergency visits can be provided for patients who experience dental injuries, or have issues with pain that have no obvious cause.
Our Practice Can Help You If You Cannot Wait For A Regular Appointment
What makes an emergency dental appointment appropriate? There are many different issues that can call for care on short notice. Any problem that makes you worry your tooth will be lost, or an issue that leaves you in too much pain to ignore, can justify a prompt visit. If necessary, we can work out a plan for a same-day appointment or after-hours visit.
Saving A Tooth That Is Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken
After chipping or cracking a tooth, you can experience significant pain that does not seem to subside, or even develop pain after the injury occurs. Physical trauma can lead to problems with infections that threaten the health of a tooth and cause discomfort. Our practice can work quickly to restore an injured tooth and provide it protection with a dental crown. To deal with the internal damage caused by infection, we can provide a root canal procedure.
What Can Be Done To Address A Dislodged Tooth?
A tooth that has been knocked out can be saved, but its successful restoration can depend on when you undergo care, and what condition the tooth might be in when you arrive for your appointment. If possible, you should try to gently and carefully put it back in place. If you need to clean debris from it, leave attached tissues in place. Sometimes, re-inserting a tooth is not possible. A small container of salt water or milk can help you transport a tooth without letting it dry out. In the event that a tooth cannot be saved, you can still have your smile restored through prosthetic dental work that restores your appearance and bite function.
