If accidental trauma or oral infection puts your smile at risk, we offer same-day emergency dental care services to help make things right. Dr. Tony Lu provides urgent dental care to relieve pain and restore oral health promptly and effectively.
Dental emergencies can occur unexpectedly or over a course of time. Dental trauma from sports or auto accidents, for example, can happen suddenly, causing such injuries as fractured or broken teeth, lacerated gums, partially dislocated teeth, or a knocked-out tooth. These injuries must be treated immediately to relieve pain and preserve your smile. Prompt treatment can also keep your problem from worsening and causing even more damage as time passes. In the case of a partially dislocated or knocked-out tooth, time is of the essence for saving the tooth and restoring your smile.
Some dental emergencies occur over time, such as oral infections that go untreated and cause severe damage to your tooth’s nerves and roots. Damage to the pulp of your tooth can only be rectified through root canal therapy. Depending on the extent of damage, you may need emergency dental treatment to save your tooth from extraction.
An abscessed tooth is another dental issue that can become severe over time. Left unchecked, infection from an abscessed tooth can spread to nearby healthy teeth, surrounding gum tissues, or other parts of your body, putting your general health at risk. Abscessed teeth must be treated quickly, even if you’re not experiencing extreme pain. Prompt treatment can help save your tooth and avoid problems with your overall health.
The following are some common dental emergencies that require immediate care:
