Some types of dental emergencies include:

- Fractured or broken teeth
- Missing or lost teeth
- Oral injuries
- Cuts or lacerations of the mouth
When a dental emergency does occur, it is important to stay calm and seek out treatment immediately if possible. While waiting for treatment, there are several actions that can be taken. For fractured or broken teeth, you should rinse the mouth gently with warm water in order to keep the area clean. If the case of bleeding, biting down on gauze or a piece of cloth to control the bleeding is recommended. If swelling is present, it can be brought down with use of an ice pack on the outer cheek. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce pain.
If a tooth has fallen out entirely, the tooth may be able to be saved if action is taken quickly. The first thing to do is to make sure the bleeding is controlled. Then, clean the tooth off completely and store it in a glass of milk or inside the mouth to keep it moist. In most cases, a tooth may be able to survive for up to two hours.
If you experience a dental emergency, we will do everything in our power to help. Our office is located at 27420 Tourney Rd, Unit 230B, Valencia, CA 91355.
