Emergency Treatment Q & A

What is emergency dental treatment?

Dental emergencies often happen when you least expect it, and some require treatment from an endodontics specialist. Dr. Sarmiento frequently treats patients with sudden or severe pain because of diseased, infected, or damaged teeth.

Why might I need emergency treatment?

Some of the most common endodontics emergencies include:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Badly infected teeth
  • Inflamed or infected bone tissue
  • Pus in the gumline
  • Facial or gum swelling
  • Tooth pain
  • Hot and cold sensitivity

See Dr. Sarmiento at the first sign of a dental emergency, as doing so can save your tooth from falling out or needing extraction.

What happens during emergency treatment?

When you arrive at Sarmiento Microendodontics for emergency treatment, Dr. Sarmiento immediately provides you with pain relief to ensure you feel comfortable. He offers anesthesia with sedation to help you relax during treatment.

Dr. Sarmiento examines your teeth, gums, and mouth and may take dental X-rays. He discusses your oral health history and symptoms and develops a customized treatment that may include:

Treatments available at Sarmiento Microendodontics decompress swelling, reduce pain, and restore your tooth to prevent future pain and damage.

What should I expect after my treatment?

What you can expect after treatment depends on the type of emergency treatment you undergo. Your tooth might feel a little bit sore for a day or two. Ice the treatment area or take over-the-counter medications as needed to maximize comfort. Follow Dr. Sarmiento’s post-care instructions to ensure the best outcome.

How can I reduce the risk of dental emergencies?

While you can’t always avoid dental emergencies, there are several things you can do to reduce your risk. Examples include:

  • Brushing your teeth after meals
  • Flossing daily
  • Not chewing on hard objects
  • Not opening packages with your teeth
  • Wearing a mouthguard when playing contact sports 

Visit your dentist every six months for teeth cleanings and dental exams, and see a specialist at the first sign of tooth damage or pain.
