Common Summertime Dental Emergencies

Did you know that summer is one of the most common times of the year to see dental emergencies in Encino? Not only is it because kids are officially out of school, but people of all ages are more likely to get involved in outdoor activities and recreational sports. As such, they’re more than likely to find themselves in situations where
accidents, bumps, falls, hits, and other injuries occur on a frequent basis.

At Encino Dental Studio, the summer usually brings a rise in dental emergencies like:

Broken or Knocked Out Teeth

When it comes to broken teeth, time is of the essence. Call our Encino dentist immediately, as we need to see you within the next hour if possible. Try to find your broken tooth fragment and store it in a cup of milk or contact solution (then bring it with you.)

Busted Lips and Tongue/Cheek Lacerations

Your teeth are sharp. So, when you take a hit to the mouth, it’s common to see heavy bleeding in your lips, cheeks, and tongue. Apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth. If it doesn’t subside, call our office.

Jaw Injuries and Concussions

Concussions and broken jaws are common injuries in contact sports, but they can also happen in activities like cycling/biking, baseball, soccer, etc. Wearing a customized mouthguard can help.

Toothaches

Indulging in a snow cone to stay cool? The sugar may cause that undiagnosed cavity to flare up and send a “zing” through your mouth that really catches your attention. Since sweet sensitivity is a red flag for cavities, those summertime indulgences may alert you to a bigger issue that’s going on.

White Spots and Other Dental Stains

WE ALL WANT white, straight, beautiful teeth so that we can dazzle everyone with our smiles. Unfortunately, sometimes stains can get in the way of this goal, and they come in several different types.

Defeat Bad Breath with a Tongue Scraper

ONE OF THE MAIN things people overlook about a daily oral hygiene routine is cleaning their tongues. The rough surface of the tongue makes it the perfect place for all kinds of bacteria to hide and build up.

Hypodontia and Supernumerary Teeth

Not everyone gets all four wisdom teeth. Plenty of people don’t get any at all! In rare cases, a person could end up with extra teeth beyond the 32, or they could have fewer than 28!

Building a Healthy Smile

WE ALL KNOW how important daily brushing and flossing are to a growing child’s smile. But what about the vitamins and minerals that help build those healthy smiles in the first place? Let’s take a look at some of those.

What Are Dental Implants?

Tooth decay, accidents, and injuries that once would have left someone with a gap in their smile that they could never fill can now be treated so that everything works. For one, dental implants are effective ways to fill in the gaps.

Your Teeth Are Not Tools!

HUMAN TEETH ARE awesome. We wouldn’t have dedicated our professional lives to working with them if we didn’t think so. Unfortunately, a lot of people try to put their teeth to other uses they weren’t designed for, which can lead to serious problems.
