What is a Dental Emergency?
According to the American Dental Association, a dental emergency can be potentially life-threatening and requires immediate treatment to stop bleeding and infection and alleviate pain. Some common dental emergencies include:
- Severe dental pain
- Knocked out tooth
- Chipped, fractured, or broken teeth
- Infection that may cause painful swelling in and around the mouth and may compromise a patient’s airway
- Uncontrollable bleeding
- Trauma impacting facial bones that may affect a patient’s airway
What can I expect during my emergency visit?
During your visit with our emergency dentists in Redwood City, Palo Alto, or Santa Clara, our trained dentists will first need to determine the actual problem. This is usually done via a dental exam. The patient may or may not be aware of what’s causing the problem, but you should be as specific as possible about the discomfort and pain you are experiencing. Our dentists will look for signs of concern, such as infection, inflammation, and/or exposed nerves. Sometimes, the problem can be damaged due to a wisdom tooth or a crown falling out.
Once our emergency dentist in Redwood City, Palo Alto or Santa Clara, CA have identified the problem, our first line of action would be to minimize pain and/or stop the bleeding and discomfort. We administer in-office pain treatment and may also prescribe painkillers and antibiotics for at-home use to clear up the underlying cause of the dental emergency.
Please know that our highly skilled dentists will do everything possible to reduce your pain and discomfort. However, after the pain treatment, we will need to work on treating the underlying problem. This may sometimes require a repeat visit. For instance, if there’s damage done to dental appliances, such as bridges, veneers, and crowns, those would need to be repaired or remade.
