Emergency Dentist Encino

What to do during the event of a dental emergency

Dental treatment is a very crucial part of general health. In dental treatment, we get various emergency dental cases on a day to day basis. Emergency dental care is a significant medical procedure that is aimed at dissipating pain and also restoring the functionality of the patient’s dental structure. At Philip Farzad, DDS dental clinic we offer emergency dental treatment for both children and adults. Visit us today for the best dental emergency treatment in the city. Dental emergencies are generally very important since they help prevent other dental complications from occurring.

How do I know when to visit an emergency dentist?

Dental emergencies occur in various ways. Some of the most common causes of emergency dental care that we encounter regularly are sports injuries, car accidents, and dangerous falls. When the teeth or any other region of the mouth is injured, it is best to seek dental care as soon as possible.

 

Here are a small number of symptoms that indicate that you need immediate dental care:

  • Losing a tooth
  • Loose teeth
  • A missing dental crown
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Facial pain
  • Wounds to the cheeks or tongue
  • Wounds to the cheeks or tongue
  • Tooth pain caused by accidents.

It is always important to find a reliable and efficient emergency dentist to address your dental issue. At Philip Farzad, DDS dental clinic we offer a large array of emergency services focused on getting your backside on your feet as soon as possible. If the dentist is unable to provide immediate help, he may guide you on how to perform a simple pain relieving procedure to reduce pain and manage the condition.

What to make in the event of a dental emergency

We usually encourage all our patients to employ pain relief methods in case of a dental emergency. Sometimes, dental emergencies occur at a very odd time of the day making it difficult to get immediate dental help. In such a case, you can apply pain relief measures or take pain relievers according to the dentist’s instructions. If a tooth crown or any other dental appliance begins to dislodge it is best to visit the dentist for immediate repair. 

Until then, you can ensure that the appliance does not dislodge completely in order to reduce the intensity of repair. For knocked out teeth, you can carry the broken tooth by the crown. Rinse it and store it safely before your next visit to the dentist. For some small injuries like biting your tongue, we do not offer emergency services. However, we recommend rinsing the area with lots of water and then compress the area with ice.

Pain relief at home

Emergency treatment usually requires pain relief measures before the condition can be treated. Our dentist can prescribe pain relievers for reducing the pain. Avoid taking pain killers that aren’t recommended by the dentist since they can increase bleeding instead of stopping. 

As you become more accustomed to prescription drugs, you can advance to natural models of pain relief as per the dentist’s instructions. Regular checkups at the dentist are important to assess the effect of dental emergencies and mitigate any dental complications.
