Emergency

If you are involved in a dental accident please call our regular phone number as soon as possible. If the office is closed, you will be directed to a pager number allowing the doctor or a team member to be personally paged to call you back, answer any questions pertaining to your emergency and then come to the office for Emergency Dentist Moreno Valley treatment if necessary.


 
For interim care of an affected tooth please refer to the following instructions:



 

AVULSION (Entire Tooth Knocked Out)

  1. Avoid additional trauma to tooth while handling. Do Not handle tooth by the root. Do Not brush or scrub tooth. Do Not sterilize tooth.
  2. If debris is on tooth, gently rinse with water.
  3. If possible, reimplant tooth and stabilize by biting down gently on a towel or handkerchief. Do only if patient is alert and conscious.
  4. If unable to reimplant:
    • Best - Place tooth in Hank's Balanced Saline Solution.
    • 2nd best - Place tooth in cold milk.
    • 3rd best - Wrap tooth in saline-soaked gauze.
    • 4th best - Place tooth under patient's tongue. Do this ONLY if patient is conscious and alert.
    • 5th best - Place tooth in cup of water.
  5. Time is very important. Reimplantation within 30 minutes has the highest degree of success rate. Transport Immediately to Dentist.


 

LUXATION (Tooth in socket, but wrong position)

Extruded Tooth - Upper tooth hangs down and/or lower tooth raised.

  1. Reposition tooth in socket using firm finger pressure.
  2. Stabilize tooth by gently biting on towel or handkerchief.
  3. Transport Immediately to Dentist.

Lateral Displacement - Tooth pushed back or pulled forward.

  1. Try to reposition tooth using finger pressure.
  2. Patient may require local anesthetic to reposition tooth; if so, stabilize tooth by gently biting on towel or handkerchief.
  3. Transport immediately to dentist.

Intruded Tooth - Tooth pushed into gum - looks short.

  1. Do nothing - avoid any repositioning of tooth.
  2. Transport immediately to dentist.


 

FRACTURE (Broken Tooth)

  1. If tooth is totally broken in half, save the broken portion and bring to the dental office as described under Avulsion, Item 4. Stabilize portion of tooth left in mouth by gently biting on towel or handkerchief to control bleeding.
  2. Should extreme pain occur, limit contact with other teeth, air or tongue. Pulp nerve may be exposed, which is extremely painful to athlete.
  3. Immediately transport patient and tooth fragments to dentist.


 

What if my temporary crown comes off or breaks?

When a temporary crown falls off or breaks, reattach the crown using dental adhesive or toothpaste. Call us immediately so we can schedule an appointment to replace it. Our doctors may simply reapply the temporary crown or fit the permanent crown if it is available.
