Common Dental Emergencies

Whether your dental emergency in Thousand Oaks results from an accident or a recurring dental problem, it's advisable to call our dentist as soon as possible. This way, you will receive expert advice on the next course of action, including what you can do to relieve the pain before visiting the dentist.

Any dental problem can be considered an emergency, depending on the severity and the resulting pain. Here are some of the common emergency problems we treat:

Tooth Pain & Sensitivity: Toothache is often a sign of decay or infection, but the root cause of the problem may vary depending on your current dental health. Tooth sensitivity may arise due to a cracked crown, a broken tooth, or gum recession.

Abscess: A dental abscess is a sign of infection. Such a problem could indicate a more serious oral health concern, and you should call our team for immediate evaluation.

Damaged or Lost Fillings: While this treatment is not usually an emergency, it does require urgent attention if you are in pain. The sooner you see our dentist, the lower the risk of needing a more extensive procedure later.

Damaged or Missing Dental Crowns: If you lose your dental crown by accident or due to decay occurring underneath, you need to see your dentist for quick remedy and advice. If not treated, bacteria and decay can reach the tooth root, making root canal therapy necessary.

An Avulsed or Knocked-Out Tooth: If you knock out your tooth, the best thing to do is handle it gently, never touching the root, until you see our dentist. If there's excessive bleeding, use a cotton pad or clean towel to apply pressure around the gums to stop or reduce the bleeding.

Root Canal Therapy – A Common Emergency Treatment

We will remove the infected pulp, nerve tissue, and any decay using advanced technology and sophisticated dental instruments.

Once done, we will clean the tooth and seal it with a temporary filling. After your tooth has healed, we will place a crown to restore your tooth's function and strength. If needed, we will offer you nitrous oxide to ensure you are calm and relaxed throughout the entire procedure.

We Perform Gentle Extractions When Necessary

While root canal therapy can often save your tooth from extraction, sometimes it's too late to perform this procedure. When the tooth is badly damaged, extracting it can prevent the infection from spreading. The decision to do an extraction is something we don’t take lightly. Because retaining your natural tooth structure is the most beneficial, emergency extraction may result after exploring other alternatives.
