What To Do
In a Dental Emergency
It’s not always easy to know for sure if your tooth or mouth pain requires emergency dental repair, but some problems can lead to life-threatening infections or rapid decay if not treated immediately. Here are some examples of common dental emergencies:
The Importance of Immediate Care
For a Dental Emergency?
There are a number of reasons that you should contact Dr. Sung or Dr. Nguyen of Grand Mission Dentistry immediately if you are experiencing a dental emergency:
A Serious Toothache Counts
As a Dental Emergency
A serious toothache is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. The most likely reason for a toothache is that your enamel has been damaged by decay or an injury, and the interior “pulp” of your tooth has been exposed to bacteria.
If you do not get proper treatment for an infected tooth, it will die and fall out, requiring you to replace it with a denture, dental bridge, or implant. It is always best to save your natural tooth, so you should get help for a toothache as soon as you can, particularly if it persists for more than a day or two.

Get out of pain
It’s no surprise that a dental injury is going to cause some pain and discomfort. Before you get to the dentist, taking an over-the-counter painkiller such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can work wonders to reduce swelling and dull painful symptoms while you wait for more permanent treatment.
