Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
LosAngelesEmergencyDentist.net now offers services to help Los Angeles residents find appropriate emergency dental care. While most people are familiar with the best way to get treatment in a medical emergency, not as many know where to go when they have a dental emergency. Every second counts when it comes to dental emergencies, though, so having the Los Angeles emergency dentist site as a resource can be invaluable.
Common dental emergencies include:
- Avulsed, or knocked out teeth
- Luxated, or dislocated teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Lost fillings and crowns
- Tooth or jaw pain
- Abscess or infection
- Soft tissue injuries
- Athletic injuries
Some types of dental emergencies only require stabilization, where patients can go on to see their own dentists at a later or more convenient time. Other types of dental emergencies, such as avulsed or luxated teeth, require immediate care. If a tooth is knocked out, or avulsed, the patient should avoid touching the root and gently rinse any dirt from the tooth. The tooth should not be scrubbed or stored in tap water. Over-the-counter tooth preservation kits are available, but patients can also store the tooth in a glass of milk or in their own mouths in a pinch. Getting treatment within an hour of the injury is ideal, but some teeth can still be saved even if not treated immediately. However, it is still important to seek treatment right away.
Other treatments, such as emergency root canals, can provide immediate and dramatic pain relief from a tooth injury, abscess or infection. An emergency root canal removes the diseased tissue from the tooth and protects the tooth until it can be further restored. A situation with a lost restoration can also be quickly resolved. In most cases, a Los Angeles emergency dentist will simply need to clean it and then protect the damaged tooth with a temporary restoration. A temporary restoration is ideal until it can later be easily replaced with a permanent restoration on the patient’s preferred schedule.
