If you experience a dental emergency, make sure to contact your trusted team at Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs Endodontics right away. We will offer advice on stabilizing your condition before you arrive at your emergency dental appointment.
The following are the most common dental emergencies we treat at our endodontic practice:
Severe Tooth Pain: Tooth pain may result from infected or inflamed tooth pulp. If that’s the case, a root canal treatment will provide prompt relief. Symptoms of tooth pulp damage include pain, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, drainage, tooth discoloration, and tenderness in the lymph nodes, gum tissues, and nearby bone.
Knocked-Out (Avulsed) Tooth: If your tooth has been knocked out of its socket, you’ll require immediate attention. First, pick the tooth by the crown without touching the root and rinse it with warm water. If possible, return the tooth to its socket. Otherwise, carry it between your teeth and cheek or in a container of milk. We will stabilize the affected tooth and may recommend a root canal treatment to save it.
Partially Displaced Teeth: A tooth that’s pushed sideways, into, or partially out of the socket will need emergency care. We will examine your mouth and take x-rays to determine the extent of the damage. We may need to reposition the affected tooth and stabilize it using a splint. Endodontic treatment may be required to save the tooth.
Chipped or Broken Teeth: According to the American Association of Endodontists, chipped teeth are the most common dental injuries. If your teeth are loose or tender to the touch, make sure to contact us right away. Meanwhile, locate any parts of the tooth that may have come off and bring them to your appointment.
Dental Infection or Abscess: If you have an abscess, we may recommend a pulpal debridement to relieve the pain and pressure. This emergency procedure provides instant relief until you can get a root canal treatment done.
