Accidents can happen to us at any time of day. Damaging a tooth impacts your ability to bite and chew at mealtime, speak clearly, and its effect on your appearance can be upsetting. When they occur, dental emergencies can cause stress and panic in addition to pain. You should respond quickly when dealing with these situations to ensure that you treat them with the seriousness they deserve and relieve any pain and other threats to your oral health. For this reason, it is important to know in advance who to contact at this difficult time. Thankfully, your Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office provides the services needed to respond to your dental injury, which will help calm your nerves and return you to good health! We will treat the immediate effects of your injury and recommend services to restore the proper look of your smile.
How To Tell If You Are Having A Dental Emergency
Signs of a possible dental emergency include:
- A cracked or loose tooth
- A dental abscess
- Severe pain
- Gum problems or bleeding
- A knocked-out tooth
We do not typically consider having a cavity to be an emergency situation. They are often discovered at your routine cleanings and examinations before you even realize something is wrong with your tooth. However, if you are experiencing pain that will not go away, it is important to call us and schedule an appointment to evaluate the cause.
Preparing For Your Visit
The first way to prepare for a dental injury is having the phone number for a dentist that provides emergency services to call when you require them. Our practice has extensive experience in treating cracked, chipped, or lost teeth in a swift and safe manner. However, you should head to the nearest emergency room if you believe your injury may be life threatening. If you are experiencing excessive bleeding that you cannot control, you should head to the hospital before visiting us for dental repair.
If your tooth is partially broken or chipped, collect any pieces in a sealed container and bring them with you to your visit. If your tooth is fully knocked-out, rinse it under water and place it in a container with milk or salt water. Preserving your injured teeth will increase our chances of restoring their natural structure.
