Emergency Dental Care

Pine Desert Dental offers emergency care for dental issues that need attention immediately. Leaving infections or broken teeth untreated could lead to more significant concerns. At Pine Desert Dental, we offer solutions for all types of emergency dental problems, including:

  • Broken or Loose Dental Fillings
  • Broken, Chipped, or Dislodged Tooth
  • Dental Abscess

Whether caused by dental decay, a mouth injury, or teeth grinding, Dr. Sunitsch will attend to your dental emergency as soon as possible

Broken or Loose Dental Fillings

A broken or loose dental filling can expose your tooth’s dentin, pulp and nerves to bacteria, food, and plaque. If a broken or loose dental filling is not addressed in a timely manner, this can lead to a large cavity or a dental infection.

If you notice a crack in your dental fillings, you should call your dentist as soon as possible. An untreated broken or loose dental filling could let bacteria seep down, leading to decay and potentially infecting the dental pulp (nerves and blood supply). This may result in the need for a root canal or tooth extraction.

You can schedule an emergency dental appointment at Pine Desert Dental if you are experiencing pain and sensitivity in your tooth or gums. In the meantime, we recommend swishing lukewarm salt water in your mouth to flush out all bacteria and food debris.

Broken, Chipped, or Dislodged Tooth

If you have a broken, chipped, or dislodged tooth, you should see your dentist as soon as possible. An untreated cracked or dislodged tooth can lead to a dental abscess or pocket of bacteria. Not attending to these issues promptly might end up causing an infection that could spread to other parts of the body and become a more significant health concern. 

Whether it occurred due to facial trauma or by chewing into hard food, a fractured or out-of-place (dislodged) tooth can cause pain and teeth sensitivity. You can avoid further damage and infections by getting in touch with our emergency dentistry services. 

Teeth damage may not be noticeable right away. However, contact us if you start experiencing pain or tooth sensitivity when drinking or eating food.

Dental Abscess (Tooth Infection)

A dental abscess is a build-up of pus that can form inside the teeth, gums, or jaw bone. It’s usually caused by a bacterial infection from a dental cavity or injury.

Getting help right away is essential since an untreated abscess could lead to an expanding infection. If you notice the following symptoms, contact us as soon as possible:

  • Intense pain in teeth or jaw bone that extends into the ear
  • Redness and swelling of the mouth and face
  • Redness, swelling, and sensitivity in gums
  • Teeth sensitivity to temperature, air, and drinking or eating food
  • Bad breath or unpleasant taste in the mouth

A dental abscess will not resolve itself with at-home care and will require treatment from your dentist to resolve it. You may also need antibiotics prescribed to help clear the infection.
