Any type of accident or injury to your mouth that requires quick attention from a dentist or oral surgeon is considered a dental emergency. If your life is in danger, you should immediately go to the emergency room. However, if you simply need impromptu dental care or you’re experiencing extreme pain, Lombard Dental Studio can help.
Dental emergencies typically include:
In some cases, your dentist in Thousand Oaks can help to manage your pain and delay your treatment for a day or two. However, if you suspect you need a emergency dentist, contact the Lombard Dental Studio office right away.
If your tooth gets knocked out or falls out on its own, it’s important to see the dentist right away. There are some instances where your tooth can be salvaged and put back into the socket. If you can, try to put the tooth back into the socket yourself, but be careful not to touch the roots of the tooth or the socket.
If you can’t put the tooth back into its socket before you reach the office, keep the tooth between your gums and teeth or in a glass of milk.
If you lose a dental crown or filling, apply a piece of sugarless gum to the area where it’s missing and visit the Lombard Dental Studio right away.
Depending on the severity of your emergency, you might need follow-up visits or oral surgery after your initial visit. However, many dental emergencies can be resolved quickly and efficiently if you seek immediate care.
To avoid further injuries or complications to your teeth or mouth, wear a protective mouthguard when playing sports, and be gentle when you brush and floss your teeth.
