Accidents are never planned and rarely anticipated, but good dental care is always ready and available 24/7. Like all medical emergencies, dental emergencies require quality care, and fast! Here’s what to do if you think you have a dental emergency on your hands.
If you are in a lot of pain or have experienced trauma that puts your oral health at risk, you should seek emergency dental treatment immediately. Sports impact, chewing hard food, using teeth as scissors, and infections can all cause a dental emergency.
Pain and swelling, discoloration of gums or teeth, or a broken or knocked-out tooth should send you to Blue Wave Dental immediately. Dental emergencies can lead to complicated health issues if left untreated.
In any dental emergency, call your Walnut Creek dentist and make an appointment right away. Even if the office is closed, our dentists are on call and available to help. At the same time, clean and treat your wound as much as you can while at home to preserve the tooth and tissues.
Here are some specific care instructions:
Of course, it’s much easier to avoid an accident in the first place. Your oral health is very important for a fulfilling and enjoyable life.
