What Count as Emergencies?

Dental emergencies are any situation where the health of a tooth has been suddenly and thoroughly compromised. If treatment to resolve the concern is not administered in a timely manner, the tooth may be permanently lost.

One of the most common emergencies is tooth avulsion. Certain injuries can cause an otherwise healthy tooth to be knocked out of the smile. The good news is that an avulsed tooth can be replanted, but only if the tooth is preserved in perfect health until your emergency appointment.

Another common dental emergency is a tooth that has suffered cracks or developed severe decay. Teeth in these situations cannot withstand the pressure of chewing, leading to significant discomfort when pressure is applied to them. Adding a crown to the tooth, as well as root canal therapy in severe cases, is usually able to restore the tooth to full health.

Other emergency situations exist as well, and the only sign may be an extreme toothache. If the oral pain you experience is intense, you should call our dental practice in Visalia at 559-732-5396.
