When To Seek Encino Emergency Dental Care

A dental emergency can come about at any time, usually, the worst time, like when you’re right in the middle of an important meeting in Encino or on your wedding day. Though they can often be prevented, dental emergencies can still happen regardless of your oral hygiene habits, age, or diet.

Possible Dental Emergencies

When it comes to a dental emergency, you’ll often have better results if you seek dental care sooner rather than later. But what exactly constitutes as a dental emergency? Not sure? Let’s find out.

Loose or Knocked Out Tooth

Playing contact sports, or being in an automobile accident can cause one of your teeth to loosen, or fall out. If your tooth completely falls out, you can slide it back in place if at all possible ...then immediately call our emergency dentist in Encino. Recovering from a loose or broken tooth injury has a lot to do with how fast you make it to the dentist’s office. If the tooth is turned and needs to be put back in the proper position, we can splint it to help hold it in place.

You Have a Severe Toothache

If you have a severe toothache that is preventing you from performing normal activities like going to work or school, then call the dentist. We can possibly get you a prescription-strength pain reliever along with an antibiotic to ease your discomfort. However, the most important step is to treat the cause of the infection here in our office.

If you experience severe swelling that is affecting your eyesight or swallowing, and/or if you have a fever, you should go to your nearest hospital’s emergency room as soon as possible.
