There are several steps you can take to manage a dental emergency until you can get to our office for treatment. But the first thing you need to do when you experience anything out of the ordinary with your oral health is to call Winning Smiles at (909) 822-3003.
Here are some of the most common problems our emergency dentist in Fontana, CA treats, and how to handle them until we see you.
- Toothache – Don't ever ignore tooth pain. Take OTC pain relievers, swish salt water around in your mouth, or try a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling until you get to our office.
- Broken tooth – Collect the broken fragments and bring them with you to your dental appointment.
- Lost dental crown or filling – Wrap the lost crown in tissue to keep it safe. If we see you promptly, there's a good chance we can cement it back onto your tooth. Our emergency dentist will need to replace any lost tooth fillings.
- Knocked-out tooth – Hold the tooth by the crown only and do not touch the root. Try to gently place the tooth back in its socket; if this isn't possible, put it in the pocket between your cheek and gums, or in a container of milk or saliva, and bring it with you.
Since we offer same-day emergency care and we'll decide if you need to see our emergency dentist in Fontana, CA right away or if it's safe for you to wait until our next available appointment.
We are available to take your emergency call 24/7. Call our main office number at (909) 822-3003 to speak to a member of our team.
