A dental emergency is a condition that requires immediate dental attention to alleviate severe pain, bleeding, swelling, or infection. It is a situation that cannot wait for regular dental office hours or a scheduled appointment. Dental emergencies can happen suddenly, often due to trauma or injury, or they can develop over time due to infection or decay.
Some examples of dental emergencies include:
Severe toothache: A toothache that is constant and severe can be a sign of a dental emergency, especially if it is accompanied by swelling or a fever.
Broken or knocked-out tooth: A tooth that is broken, cracked, or knocked out due to trauma requires immediate attention to save the tooth and prevent further damage.
Gum or facial swelling: Swelling in the gums or face can be a sign of a serious infection that requires prompt treatment.
Severe bleeding: If a tooth is knocked out or a cut in the mouth is bleeding heavily and cannot be controlled with pressure, immediate attention is needed.
Loose or broken dental appliance: If a dental appliance such as a denture or bridge is broken or causing discomfort, it may require immediate attention.
In any dental emergency, it is important to seek professional dental care as soon as possible to prevent further damage or complications. If a dental emergency occurs outside of regular dental office hours, emergency dental services are available to provide prompt care. Dr. Brandon and Dr. Iris at Westgrove Dental Care in Garden Grove, CA are available at (714) 893-2453 for your dental emergency needs.
