Emergency Dental Services

No one plans for a dental emergency, but when the unexpected happens, it’s crucial to know where to turn. At the dental practice of Stephen Cheung DDS, centrally located in Lodi, we prioritize emergencies and ensure that you receive prompt, effective, and compassionate care to address your immediate needs.

 

COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCIES

 

  • Toothaches: Severe or persistent pain can be a sign of an underlying issue, such as an abscess or infection.
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: Trauma or biting down on hard substances can cause teeth to break.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: Immediate action and prompt dental attention can sometimes save the tooth.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: Leaving the exposed tooth untreated can lead to further complications.
  • Swollen or Bleeding Gums: Could indicate gum disease or infection.
  • Abscessed Tooth: A painful infection that can be dangerous if left untreated.

 

WHAT TO DO IN A DENTAL EMERGENCY

 

  1. Stay Calm: Panic can exacerbate the situation. Take deep breaths and focus on the next steps.
  2. Contact Us: Call our Lodi clinic immediately. We offer guidance over the phone and prioritize emergency cases.
  3. Follow Preliminary Steps: Depending on the emergency, actions like rinsing your mouth, applying a cold compress, or storing a knocked-out tooth in milk can help.
  4. Avoid Aspirin: If in pain, opt for ibuprofen. Aspirin can cause excessive bleeding during dental procedures.
