A dental emergency can be very inconvenient and painful, and affect your ability to live a normal life. Whether you or a family member has been injured while playing a sport, or even in a car accident, immediate care is crucial for the best results.
At Grand Mission Dentistry, Dr. William Sung and Dr. Tam Nguyen are experienced emergency dentists. We do our best to maintain a flexible schedule, and help you get the dental treatment you need to minimize your pain, suffering, and discomfort.
Understanding Dental Emergencies – What Counts?
There are many different kinds of dental emergencies, but they all share two basic characteristics.
- The injury is causing you serious pain and discomfort.
- You cannot treat the injury on your own.
If your issue fits these two criteria, you’re experiencing a dental emergency. By this definition, issues like pulled out dental work (crowns and fillings) are dental emergencies.
Painful toothaches are also dental emergencies, as are dental injuries like damage to the lips and cheeks, or cracked, damaged, or loose teeth.
Immediate Care Provides The Best Results For Dental Emergencies
In most cases, you will need to get treatment within about 12 hours to maximize the chance of saving a damaged tooth. In some cases, like an avulsed (knocked-out) tooth, you may need treatment within only 2 hours to replace the tooth and ensure that it can be restored.
As a rule, you will need to get care from a dentist as soon as you experience a dental emergency. Call Grand Mission Dentistry for an appointment right away. Once you have scheduled a same-day emergency appointment, you can treat issues like pain, swelling, and bleeding to the best of your ability while you wait.
