Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Emergencies

What are some dental emergencies?

We consider the following types of situations to be a dental emergency: unbearable pain, bleeding that won’t stop, or circumstances in which prompt treatment is needed in order to save a tooth.

Are cavities considered a dental emergency?

Cavities are not typically considered a dental emergency. The exception to this is if you have a cavity that is causing you severe pain. If this is the case, your tooth may be infected.

What helps unbearable tooth pain?

If your tooth pain is unbearable, it’s a sign that something is seriously wrong with the affected tooth and this is a dental emergency. It’s unlikely that the pain will resolve without urgent dental care treatment. That said, you can make it more bearable while waiting for your emergency dental appointment by using over-the-counter pain relievers, numbing creams, and cold compresses.

Can a knocked out tooth be put back in?

Yes, an adult tooth that has been knocked out can often be put back in successfully. The key is to act fast and avoid touching the root of the tooth. With prompt urgent dental care treatment, your gums and soft tissues will reattach to the tooth’s root. Contact our Torrance, CA office for immediate attention with these kinds of dental emergencies.
