Dental emergencies can happen at any time, and they often require immediate attention to alleviate pain and prevent further damage. At Plaza Dental Group in San Jose, we understand the urgency of dental emergencies and provide prompt, compassionate care to help you get back to your daily life as quickly as possible.

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can take various forms, including:

  • Severe toothache; persistent pain that doesn't respond to over-the-counter medication
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Abscessed tooth; a painful infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and tooth
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Bleeding or swollen gums
  • Injuries to the lips, tongue, or cheeks

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's crucial to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible to prevent the situation from worsening.

What to Do in a Dental Emergency

When faced with a dental emergency, it's essential to take prompt action to minimize pain and prevent further damage. Here are some steps you can take:

  • Contact Plaza Dental Group immediately to schedule an emergency appointment
  • If you have a knocked-out tooth, try to place it back in the socket or store it in a container with milk until you can see the dentist
  • Apply a cold compress to the outside of the cheek to reduce swelling and pain
  • Take over-the-counter pain medication as directed to manage discomfort
  • Avoid applying aspirin directly to the affected area, as this can cause further irritation

Remember, the sooner you seek emergency dental care, the better the chances of a successful treatment outcome.
