What are the common dental emergencies?

Common dental emergencies include toothaches, oral injury, or broken tooth/restoration. Of course, some emergencies fall out of these categories, so we recommend calling our dental office if unsure.

Common Dental Emergencies in El Dorado Hills, CA

The most common dental emergency is toothache brought on by root infection. This is an infection and inflammation deep in your tooth, which holds the nerve and pulp. We use root canal treatment to relieve the pain and restore oral health.

Deep decay is also common; many patients call when the decayed tooth becomes painful or begins to break. If you suspect a cavity, getting it filled as soon as possible is essential to avoid losing the tooth.

Common—but not as common as deep decay or root infection—is tooth or restoration loss or breakage. When you damage your tooth or restoration, you put the inner workings at risk for severe infection. So it’s crucial to see the dentist as soon as possible.
