Dental emergencies occur every day, and without prompt, skilled treatment, they can lead to the loss of a tooth. Hospital emergency rooms are well-equipped to manage medical emergencies, but they generally cannot accommodate dental emergencies, costing you valuable time. Our Glendale emergency dental office can handle virtually any dental emergency in a timely, efficient manner.
Dr. Martirosyan, our expert in emergency dental in Glendale, will determine your dental needs and will explain the best way to proceed. We will stabilize your tooth or soft tissue injury to minimize the risk of long-term damage, and we will create a treatment plan to fully restore your smile.
Glendale Emergency Dental
When do you seek treatment for a dental emergency? The following issues should be addressed by our Glendale emergency dental office as quickly as possible:
1. Avulsed tooth
A tooth that is knocked out must be inserted back into its socket right away or whenever possible. After rinsing the tooth, you can try to put it back, but if it does not go easily back into the socket, don’t force it but instead place it in a tooth preservation kit or glass of milk. Call us immediately in either case.
2. Luxated tooth
This is an injury in which the tooth is essentially dislocated. It may be pushed deeper into or out of its socket. The tooth will need to be repositioned and may need a root canal treatment. Once the tooth has been repositioned, it may need to be splinted or braced into place to secure it as it heals.
3. Abscessed tooth
This is a painful infection of the inner structures of the tooth. A root canal will generally be needed to eliminate the infection.
Not all dental issues are dental emergencies. Some issues that should be addressed promptly but may be able to wait for normal office hours include:
1. A loose or lost restoration
2. A cavity
3. A chip or crack
Sometimes, it can be difficult for you to determine the seriousness of an injury. In this case, Dr. Martirosyan and our team for emergency dental in Glendale will work with you to determine the extent of the injury or disease and ensure you get prompt, experienced treatment.
