Emergencies happen. When they do, you can trust Corte Madera Dentist to be there for you and your family. We offer emergency dentistry to our patients because we understand how important it is to take care of emergency situations quickly before the issues or problems become worse.
Types of Emergency Dentistry
Dental emergencies vary. You can damage your arm or leg in any number of ways, and the same can be said of how you can damage your mouth, teeth, or gums. Common types of dental emergencies include:
Fractured Teeth | Severely cracked or broken teeth need to be taken care of right away.
Lost Filling or Crown | If you lose a filling or a crown, it may be necessary to get it replaced quickly in order to protect your teeth.
Extreme Pain | Intense pain could indicate more serious problems like disease or decay.
Foreign Object Lodged in Teeth/Gums | Do not try and remove anything stuck in your mouth/teeth/gums by yourself. Schedule an appointment with us right away.
Bleeding | Excessive bleeding that won’t stop can be an indicator of other problems in the mouth.
Infections | Infections need to be addressed quickly so they do not spread and threaten your overall oral health.
Tooth Loss | If you have a tooth dislodged, clean it off with clean water and carefully try to insert it back into the open hole. Handle it on the crown; do not touch the root area if it can be avoided. If it can’t be put back in, place it in a glass of milk or water.
These measures can help you until you can reach our office.
