When Is It a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can be scary! Knowing what to do when you’re experiencing a dental emergency can help you save your tooth or avoid a painful, difficult problem. When you’re having a dental emergency, it’s also important to see the dentist in Victorville CA. Below, we’ve listed the signs of a dental emergency. Here’s what you need to know.

You’ve Lost a Permanent Tooth

You should never lose a permanent tooth, so if one of your permanent teeth falls out, then it’s important to get to the dentist right away. The faster you can get to the dentist, the more likely it will be that the dentist can put your tooth back in your mouth. If your dentist is unable to put back your natural tooth, then you may be a candidate for a prosthetic tooth, like an implant.

You’re in Serious Pain or Your Gums are Swollen

Don’t ignore pain in your mouth, especially if the pain is severe or accompanied by swelling of the gums. If you’re in serious pain, call the dentist as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. When scheduling your appointment, make a point to mention your discomfort, so they’ll know that you need immediate help.

Your Tooth is Chipped or Broken

A chipped or broken tooth can be a dental emergency, depending on the injury. Call the dentist right away to get advice.

You’re Bleeding

If you’ve injured your mouth and your teeth are bleeding, you may have damaged your teeth. Call the dentist to find out if you need to come in for an examination.

If you’re experiencing any of the above problems, call for dental emergency help in Victorville CA. We can help you with problems like a lost or broken tooth, severe pain and more.
