Accidents are a part of everyday life, but when an accident affects your mouth, what you do in the moments after the injury may mean the difference between saving your smile and losing a tooth. We offer emergency dental work in Los Angeles to stabilize and protect your dental health no matter what.
Common dental emergencies include knocked-out teeth, cracked or broken teeth, dislodged teeth, bitten soft tissues, toothaches, objects stuck between teeth or in other tissues and abscesses. In most cases, these emergencies require immediate treatment. We can quickly and efficiently evaluate your situation and take steps to stabilize the tooth or soft tissues and prevent further damage.
After stabilizing your tooth and providing any necessary care, we may recommend specific follow-up care. Following these recommendations is vital to achieving a positive outcome. Without emergency dental care, a dental emergency could lead to the loss of a tooth. An abscess could become a life-threatening infection, and untreated dental disease could cause widespread bone or tissue loss. We recommend a prompt evaluation of any dental emergency and will ensure you get the care you need.
Reduce your risk of dental emergencies by wearing mouthguards when engaging in contact sports, using appropriate tools for opening packages and avoiding chewing on non-food items such as ice, pencils and fingernails.
