EMERGENCY DENTISTRY IN PLEASANTON

WHAT IS CONSIDERED AN EMERGENCY?

Emergency dentistry becomes crucial in situations where urgent dental care is required. These emergencies can arise from various incidents, such as a tooth being broken or dislodged due to trauma, an accident, or even while chewing. Other emergencies include experiencing a debilitating toothache or when a dental restoration, like a crown or a filling, breaks loose. Such incidents can not only lead to tooth loss but may also necessitate emergency room visits to manage severe pain. However, as any emergency doctor would advise, dental issues require specialized dental care.

DEALING WITH A TOOTH ACHE

The dentists of Pleasanton Star Dental know that dental pain is no joke! A painful tooth can be caused by many different issues. If a visual scan or intraoral photography does not reveal the immediate problem, x-rays will likely be necessary to look for causes. The source of tooth pain may include:

  • Severe tooth decay, reaching down to the root
  • Bacterial infection, leading to abscess
  • Oral cysts or tumors.

Our examination will reveal the cause and we will proceed to the remedy. Tooth pain can be a sign of serious illness and can progress to dangerous problems, if not handled immediately.

Do not let any of these disasters jeopardize your life or that of your family and friends. Toothache does not go away by itself or with painkillers. Only fixing the source of the pain can end your problem.

 

BROKEN AND DISLODGED TEETH OR RESTORATION

“The longer the tooth is out, the less chance of having a successful implantation.” — Dr. Kimberly Harms, ADA spokesperson

If your tooth, crown, bridge, implant or other restoration has broken or become dislodged, collect the parts, if possible, and come to our E Street office immediately. Before you arrive, take the following steps:

Clean the tooth or restoration gently using whatever means are available, preferably water, saliva or the classic milk.
Reinsert the tooth or part where it belongs. If that is not possible, keep it between your cheek and gum.
Bite down on a wet rag or tea bag to keep the tooth in place.
Apply a cold compress to your cheek to keep swelling down.
Alert our office at 925-462-4045 and immediately come to the dentist.

Saving your tooth and your sanity is possible with emergency dental service at our office. We are ready to solve your problem and send you back to your normal life. Curing your pain and restoring your bite are the primary goals of emergency dental service from Pleasanton Star Dental.
