Toothache? Broken Braces? Knocked-Out Tooth?

Emergency Dental Treatment San Diego

Let’s consider three dental issues that may require immediate treatment.

Toothache

Most of us experience a toothache at some point in our lives. Even one day with oral pain can seem like an eternity.

A toothache could be a symptom of an abscess. If an abscess progresses, it can destroy the root of the tooth. It can even destroy the surrounding bone.

Possible causes of a toothache are tooth decay, an injury to the tooth, a broken crown, an infection, and TMD (temporomandibular disorder).

Let Dr, Gray take care of you. You will quickly be back to pain-free eating, speaking, and sleeping. What a relief!

Call Jeff Gray DDS – Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry if you have a toothache.

Broken Braces

What if one of the wires on your braces comes loose? It can damage your teeth or gums. If this happens and you cut the inside of your mouth, rinse with a solution of salt and water.

Call Jeff Gray DDS – Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry if a wire on your braces breaks. We have extended hours for when an oral problem can’t wait.

Knocked-Out Tooth

We hope this never happens to you. But we are here in the unfortunate event that it does. And it’s not the end of the world.

If a tooth is knocked out, it may be successfully re-implanted if done quickly. Make sure you hold the tooth only by the crown. Never touch the root!

If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently with water. Be wary not to brush off any tissue attached. If you can, reinsert the tooth into its socket. (This may not be possible with younger children.)

These are just a few of the urgent-care issues we treat at Jeff Gray DDS – Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry. But we are also a full-service dental office.
