Emergency Dentistry

Have you ever experienced a dental emergency? Most of us have or will at some point in our lives, even if we make oral health a priority. All kinds of urgent dental situations can arise, and when they do, you can turn to Dr. Byron L. Carr and his team for the prompt quality treatment and relief you need. 

What Is a Dental Emergency?

One of the most common questions our patients ask is, “Is my dental problem an emergency?” We suggest that you call us right away as soon as you experience something out of the ordinary.

Common dental emergencies that our patients in Hemet and Temecula experience are:

  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Lost or loose crowns and fillings
  • Tooth pain, from mild to severe
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Abscessed or infected teeth
  • Bleeding, swollen, or inflamed gums
  • Dental trauma, including knocked-out teeth

Critical Emergencies We Need to Treat Right Away

There are degrees of dental emergencies, and the last thing we want is for you to worry about whether or not you should contact us. Your concerns are our concerns, and we will help you determine the urgency of your dental emergency. 

For example, a loose crown needs prompt attention but is not typically as urgent as tooth pain or jaw swelling. These are symptoms of a significant underlying problem like a root infection or abscessed tooth that needs immediate treatment.

When dental trauma occurs, prompt action is crucial. For example, a knocked-out tooth needs to be addressed in a matter of hours to have any hope of re-implanting it.
