Dental emergencies can be scary. Unlike medical emergencies, which can be treated in urgent care clinics or emergency rooms, dental emergencies often require the special skills that can only be provided by an experienced emergency dentist. Our Huntington Beach emergency dentist offers the emergency care you need when you need it.
Emergency Dentist Huntington Beach
Emergency dental services offered by our emergency dentist in Huntington Beach include:
Often associated with dental decay, abscess, or fractures, toothaches can be extremely painful and signal the need for prompt care. We may recommend a dental filling, root canal, crown, or other treatment or restoration to remove decay, treat infection, and restore the tooth.
- Broken teeth
A broken tooth can be extremely painful, vulnerable to infection and risky for soft tissues. A filling or crown may be necessary to prevent further problems.
- Infections and abscessed teeth
Medications can be used to control some infections, but root canal treatments may be necessary for infections that are located inside the tooth.
Teeth can become dislodged from their sockets as a result of dental accidents. Restoring the tooth to its proper position and stabilizing it may be necessary to save it.
- Avulsed, or knocked out, teeth
If you have a tooth that has been knocked out, take care not to touch the root, and try to keep the tooth moist by storing it in a tooth preservation kit, glass of milk, or between your cheeks and gums, and seek dental care as soon as possible.
- Soft tissue damage
Most soft tissue damage is minor in nature, but it can be painful. Heavy bleeding, swelling, or similar symptoms may benefit from emergency care. Other dental emergencies, including broken braces, broken or lost crowns, and damaged restorations
