Your Pain is Our Priority
Our Tustin dentist takes emergencies seriously. Our entire team works hard to get you seen as quickly as possible and have you feeling better fast. Prolonging treatment can cause unnecessary complications that can turn a simple restorative treatment into a major procedure that may end up costing you more in out of pocket costs.
What is a Dental Emergency?
Any severe pain or dental injury can be classified as an emergency. The following are common dental emergencies and should be taken seriously:
- A Severe Toothache usually occurs due to extensive decay that has reached the tooth’s nerves.
- A Broken Tooth can result from injury to the tooth or a cracked and failing restoration.
- A Dislodged or Avulsed Tooth has been partially or totally separated from the gum and jaw.
- A Tooth Intrusion is caused by the tooth being forced down into the gum and jaw due to an injury.
While not always a true emergency, call us right away if a dental appliance or prosthetic has broken as it’s important to that it is repaired and replaced quickly to avoid gum overgrowth and shifting of existing teeth.
What to do in Case of a Dental Emergency
Call our Tustin Emergency dentist immediately to make an appointment! We do our best to see you the same day.
If you have a toothache: Take an over-the-counter pain reliever and apply a warm compress to the painful area. Topical numbing agents can also help with localized tooth pain.
If you have a dislodged tooth: Gently rinse the tooth and root without removing the attached fibers and put the tooth back into its socket until you get to our office.
If you have a broken or chipped tooth: Rinse the area of any debris. If you are experiencing pain or bleeding, apply a warm compress and call our office for an appointment right away.
