Dental Emergency

Dental EmergencyRegular preventative care can be one of the best ways to take care of your smile, but accidents and emergencies can happen. Dental emergencies can be frightening and painful, and they can seriously disrupt the health and function of your smile. Our Phoenix dental emergency expert can help.

Tooth pain is one of the most common dental emergencies. Our expert in dental emergency in Phoenix will first need to determine the cause of the pain. Severe tooth decay, a lost crown or filling, infection or abscess, or a cracked or broken tooth can all cause toothache. Once we have identified the source of your pain, we will explore your treatment options, which may include a dental filling, a root canal treatment or a porcelain crown. Medications such as antibiotics may be needed. If you need a dental crown or other restoration, this may be placed at a later appointment.

Another common dental emergency is avulsion. A tooth that is avulsed, or knocked out, can be a serious dental issue that requires prompt action. Do not touch the root of the tooth. Hold it by the crown and rinse away any debris. Place the tooth in a cup of milk or the saliva of the patient, and visit our emergency dentist in Phoenix as soon as possible. We may be able to replace the tooth in its socket. In some cases, we may need to explore your restoration options. If the tooth cannot be saved, we may recommend a dental implant, a dental bridge or a partial denture.

You cannot prevent all dental emergencies, but you can reduce them with good dental practices. Brush after meals, floss daily and visit your dentist at least every six months for checkups and cleanings. Wear a mouth guard during contact sports and a seat belt whenever you are driving or are a passenger in a vehicle. Check your teeth and gums regularly for signs of problems, and have your worn or damaged restorations replaced as needed. Contact our Phoenix emergency dentist today to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
