Sometimes, problems with your smile just cannot wait for your next routine dental exam. If you injure a tooth, if you have issues with severe pain, or if a tooth is at risk of being lost, our Riverside, CA dentist’s office is ready to help on short notice. We are ready to provide emergency dental services to our patients, even when they need to see us that day. By making same day care available, we provide important protection against issues that can quickly worsen. Through the appropriate restorative dental work, we can make sure that your smile is fully restored and in good health!
Why We Take Potential Dental Emergencies Seriously
If you feel like you are experiencing a dental emergency, reach out for help as soon as possible. Severe tooth pain can be a sign that an infection is affecting your health, while damage to your enamel can grow worse until an injured tooth is restored. We want to limit the problems that you have with an injury, infection, or any other problem with your oral health. One way to minimize complications is to see you as soon as possible. Simply put, our ability to provide same day and after hours care can ultimately reduce the amount of work needed to restore your smile!
Treating An Injured, Infected, Or Loose Tooth
If a tooth is injured, shows signs of infection, or feels loose, we can bring you in to provide treatment. Infections and physical injuries can often cause pain that will not subside until treatment. Once you arrive, we can evaluate your tooth and see what kind of care is required. When it is necessary to do so, we will perform root canal therapy to address internal tooth troubles. We can then make plans to cap your tooth with a custom dental crown. If your tooth is loose, we can take care to secure it and do any necessary work to restore its well-being.
Arranging Care When Your Tooth Is Knocked Out
If your tooth is completely dislodged, we may be able to save it, but the time you take in arriving can affect your chances. Before you leave for treatment, you can wash the tooth if it has become dirty, but be careful not to remove organic tissues. Try to put the tooth back in the socket. If this is too painful, or if it will not stay in place, you can carry it safely in a sealable container with milk or salt water.
