Nobody can predict a dental emergency, but when one strikes, you need a plan and a dental office you can rely on. Marconi Dental, located in Carmichael, California, has the advanced tools and techniques needed to provide care for any dental emergency. If you are experiencing tooth pain or trauma to your mouth, call the office immediately, and our friendly staff can assist you.

At Marconi Dental, we keep some scheduling availability every day for dental emergencies. Just call ahead and describe the issue you’re experiencing, and our friendly staff will let you know what to do and find a time in the schedule for you to arrive.

Many situations might call for emergency dental services. These include:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Significant tooth pain 
  • Tooth abscesses
  • Broken teeth
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Loose permanent teeth
  • Broken restorations, such as bridges or crowns
  • Objects stuck between the teeth 

If you have a question as to whether your situation constitutes a dental emergency, call our office and ask for assistance. We will let you know if you need to come to our office immediately or if it can wait for a regularly scheduled appointment. 

Why you can’t ignore tooth pain

Tooth pain includes throbbing, aching, or general discomfort that affects a tooth and nearby oral structures. If it persists for more than a day, take action by calling Marconi Dental. Lasting tooth pain should never be ignored because it is usually a sign of an infection. 

If you are experiencing tooth pain or are affected by dental trauma, you need emergency dental services. Call Marconi Dental for assistance. We can usually fit you in for an emergency dental appointment on the same day.

Traumatic Dental Injuries

For a more traumatic injury such as a tooth that has been moved or loosened, treatment needs to occur within six hours. However, if there is uncontrollable bleeding, go immediately to the ER. Fortunately, other dental injuries that happen most frequently are less severe. The most common traumatic dental injuries are chipped teeth. If a tooth is chipped, try to find any pieces that have come off, as it might be possible to reattach them. Make an appointment for an office visit as soon as possible, and bring the pieces with you.

Gum Emergencies

Injuries and infections involving the soft tissues of the mouth may also require emergency treatment. The tissues of the gums, tongue, or cheek lining can be damaged by accidental bites, falls, sports injuries, and scalding liquids. They may also suffer injury from foreign bodies that become lodged below the gum line, and they can develop painful and potentially serious abscesses. A periodontal (gum) abscess is a pus-filled sac caused by an infection and is usually quite painful. Abscesses require immediate attention at the dental office.

Any injury to the soft tissues of the mouth should be rinsed with dilute salt water. If there is visible debris, it should be cleared. Bleeding can usually be controlled by pressing a clean, damp material to the area for 10-15 minutes. If this does not work, go to the emergency room immediately.

A foreign body lodged beneath the gum line can sometimes be gently worked out with dental floss or a toothpick. But if this can’t be accomplished easily, make a dental appointment so the area does not become damaged and/or infected.

Orthodontic Emergencies

Although there can be discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment, there are only a few true orthodontic emergencies. They include trauma or injury to the teeth, face or mouth. Infection or swelling of the gums, mouth or face, and severe, unmanageable discomfort or pain in these areas can also be orthodontic emergencies. In any of these situations, seek immediate care from the dental office or emergency room — whichever is your best option. For loose, broken or irritating pieces of orthodontic hardware, please call the dental office for advice.
