Pain can be just one of several concerns you have if you injure a tooth. The sight of a tooth after being cracked or chipped can alarm you. The feeling of a loosened tooth, or the actual loss of a tooth, can be distressing as well. Our Riverside, CA dentist’s office recognizes that dental injuries can be scary as well as painful. To help our patients recover sooner, and to help prevent complications, we do provide emergency dental services. We can see to it that you have your problem with a damaged, loose, or lost tooth examined with minimal delay, and we can find the most conservative solution for restoring your smile and oral health.
Bring A Dental Emergency To Your Dentist, Not The ER
If your dental emergency is also a general health emergency, then you should seek general treatment. However, a problem that only concerns your oral health should be treated by your dentist. We understand that some dental problems can be difficult to ignore, or call for a prompt response, so we do provide treatments on short notice. Because you are seeing a dental professional from the beginning, you can have an easier time arranging every step of your care in a single location, making the restoration process more convenient!
Fully Restoring Your Tooth After An Injury
It may take more than just a dental filling or dental crown to take care of your injured tooth. Injuries can often cause an infection to occur in your tooth, or damage your pulp. In these situations, it can be necessary to arrange a root canal procedure. The root canal can stop an internal problem from permanently damaging your tooth and making a tooth extraction necessary. Once this is done, a dental crown can be put in place.
What To Expect When A Tooth Cannot Be Saved
It may be hard to hear, but there may not be a way to save your tooth if you suffer a serious injury. Fortunately, a gap in your smile can still be closed effectively. With a dental bridge, we can restore your full smile with a permanent restoration. The stability of this appliance can make biting and chewing easier, which means you can recover your appearance as well as your bite function!
