Emergency Dental Care
At Burbank City Dental, we offer the leading emergency dental care during our business hours. We understand dental emergencies can arise at any time and our dental professionals are dedicated to helping our patients. Oral injuries oftentimes require immediate attention and should be treated with the utmost care.
Common Injuries Treated:
Traumatic Accident Dental Injuries
Sports, car, home and work accidents are often at the root of most dental injuries. Dental trauma can easily be fixed at Burbank City Dental.
Broken teeth remain one of the most common dental injuries treated by our dentists. When possible, it is imperative for patients to keep all pieces of the tooth for reattachment.
If you are suffering from a knocked-out tooth, we recommend patients recover and clean off the tooth. If possible, place the tooth back in the socket and apply pressure to hold the tooth in place. Depending on the injury, our dental professionals can place the tooth properly back into the mouth.
Partially Displaced Teeth
If teeth are displaced from an injury, patients should seek emergency treatment within six hours of the accident. An oral examination and necessary tests may be required.
These injuries may include damage to the gums, tongue and inside of the mouth. Soft-tissue injuries are serious injuries that should be treated immediately.
Intense Tooth Pain
At Burbank City Dental, we understand that tooth pain can arise out of nowhere. Severe pain can be an indication of a much larger issue and should be treated as soon as possible.
What to do in Case of an Emergency
In the event of a dental emergency, it is important to contact our friendly staff immediately to prevent further damage. Our dental professionals are knowledgeable and can help patients schedule their emergency appointment. Our goal is to save the tooth and restore functionality and appearance with all dental emergency cases. Do not take any ibuprofen or aspirin because they are anticoagulants and can cause excessive bleeding. If your emergency is life-threatening, immediately go to an emergency room.
