What If You Need A Root Canal?
A root canal isn't as dramatic as it sounds... but it can still be vital to your health!
Tooth pain could indicate a whole variety of things like gum disease, a cavity, a damaged filling, or emerging wisdom teeth. However, based on the nature and severity of the situation, a root canal may be in order.
Even if the swelling comes and goes, it could be a sign of a serious dental problem. The swelling may or may not be accompanied by pain.
A chipped tooth or cracked tooth
Chipped or cracked teeth are potentially infected teeth and should be taken care of immediately. An infection in a tooth's root can spread to the bloodstream and beyond.
Discoloration of the tooth
Discoloration could be the result of poor hygiene or the consumption of food and drink that stains the teeth. However, in some cases, discoloration occurs due to nerve damage under the surface of the tooth. If that's the case, then a root canal might be needed.
When deep tooth decay sets in, brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash will no longer have the desired effect. When a cavity has been left alone for too long, it will spread to the nerve and root of the tooth. In this situation, a root canal is the only likely option for repair.
Pain when touching the tooth
If the tooth is sensitive to contact, it could be a sign of significant decay or nerve damage.
A loose adult tooth
Teeth that are infected feel looser than healthy teeth. If your teeth feel loose, you may need to take steps to save them!

How Do You Know It's A Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies can happen anyplace, anytime
Dental emergencies can take many forms, shapes, and sizes. In general, anything that causes extreme, persistent pain or discomfort in the mouth can be considered a dental emergency. Below are a few specific examples. If you have a knocked out or missing tooth, call us right away. Those who see a dentist within one hour of losing a tooth have the highest chances of saving that tooth. Lost fillings and crowns also require a visit to the dentist. If it's a lost crown, be sure to retrieve it and bring it with you to the dental visit. It can often be saved! Another emergency situation involves an extruded tooth. An extruded tooth is a tooth that has been displaced from its socket but is still fully intact with the nerve and blood vessels. Frequently, extruded teeth can be restored without root canal treatment. You may be surprised to find that chipped or broken teeth are dental emergencies as well. That's because the flaws
in the teeth increase the chances that bacteria from plaque will build up and cause an infection in the tooth. If left untreated, an infection could require your tooth to be extracted! Finally, a tooth abscess is an often painful pimple-like swelling on the gum that can damage tissue and teeth. In the case of an abscess, contact us immediately, as the infection in this troublesome formation can spread throughout the body. However they happen, rest assured that we're well equipped to deal with dental emergencies. We've been doing this for a long time, and there's no situation we can't handle. If you're experiencing an emergency, don't hesitate to contact us at (562) 356-0948 and let us impress you with the skill and speed with which we tackle the problem. Not only will we knock it out of the park for you, but we'll make you feel like you're on cloud nine the whole time.
What is considered to be a dental emergency?
Generally speaking, any situation that requires immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered a dental emergency.
What does an emergency dentist do?
Emergency dentists perform treatments designed to provide short term relief of pain or swelling, or treatments for facial trauma that affects teeth. During emergency dental care, the dentist may place a temporary dressing on the affected tooth, or extract the tooth entirely.
What do you do if you chip your tooth?
Chipping your tooth potentially exposes nerves and increases the risk of tooth infection. A chipped tooth can be fixed by having a dentist administer bonding or veneers. If you chip your tooth, do your best to save the broken pieces of the tooth. It's possible they can be saved.
Can a chipped tooth heal itself?
In general, chipped teeth do not heal on their own and require intervention. However, it is sometimes possible for some healing to occur if the damage is minimal. The process is called remineralization and involves the minerals in your mouth repairing lost enamel.
What is the fastest way to stop a toothache at home?
The quickest home remedy for toothache relief is a saltwater rinse. The rinse is exactly as it sounds: mix half a teaspoon of salt into a glass of warm water and rinse your mouth with it. Saltwater is a natural disinfectant, and it can help loosen food and other particles stuck between your teeth as well.
What causes gum pain?
Gum pain often occurs when people don't practice proper dental hygiene. Plaque, tartar, and bacteria build up in the mouth, causing swelling in the gums. Sometimes the inflammation can be painful. If you are experiencing gum pain, call us right away.
