Emergency Dentistry in Coronado
Helping you in your time of need.
Here at Isabella Avenue Dentistry, we understand the inconveniences and pain that can accompany an emergency dental situation. Being unsure of what to do and not knowing how to fix it, can be a stressful experience. Thankfully, we build time into our schedule to be available to treat patients experiencing an emergency situation. We can often see patients in just a short period of time when they present an urgent circumstance.
Cracked Teeth Can Definitely Present an Emergency
One of the most common dental emergencies that we see is cracked teeth. This can happen when you are simply chewing on a piece of food, or from grinding or clenching your teeth in your sleep. Not only is a cracked tooth painful, but it can also present a dangerous situation for your mouth. A cracked tooth can be split, meaning when you bite down, that crack opens. When the crack is open, the nerve or root of the tooth may be exposed, causing pain. Also, that crack can then hold on to bacterial debris from inside your mouth, and can cause tooth decay or an infection.
If you have a cracked tooth, we request that you call us as soon as you suspect that is the problem. We will gently examine the tooth in question. We are happy to report that many of the cracked teeth who have paraded through our office have been repaired and life goes on as normal. In rarer circumstances, your tooth may need to be extracted to protect the overall health of your mouth.
Severe Tooth Pain Is Also an Emergency
If you are suddenly in severe pain from within your mouth, you need to give our office a call, even if you aren’t exactly sure which tooth is causing the pain. We will thoroughly examine your mouth and narrow down the cause of the pain. From there, we can talk with you about what type of treatment plan will relieve you of any discomfort. Then, we can take the steps to get you back to your life!
There are a lot of issues that can be considered an emergency. If you aren’t sure if your situation qualifies, call us. We can be reached at 619-435-0147. Let us know what is going on, and we can then tell you the best ways of being able to either manage your pain until you can be seen, or we can offer other advice to help. Don’t hesitate to call us. We are always here for you!
