A dental emergency may sound like a catastrophe to many San Diego area dental patients, but having a tooth knocked out doesn’t always mean you’ll need cosmetic dentistry to fix your smile.
Around San Diego, the most common causes of a tooth ache include tooth infection, decay, injury, and loss of a tooth. Tooth pain can also occur after a tooth has been extracted, or after an oral surgery involving anything from a tooth or your jawbone.
Infection, tooth damage, prolonged bleeding and swelling, and gum recession are just a few of the dangers and risks of oral piercings. See your San Diego dentist before deciding on oral piercings, or call Dr. Marcos Ortega, DDS, for a consultation if you already have damage.
Many people will experience at least one tooth emergency in their life. You could break a tooth playing a sport, accidentally dislodge a dental crown, experience sudden pain caused by an abscess or break a wire on your braces. In the case of a dental emergency, see your San Diego dentist as soon as possible!
