When Do You Need Emergency Dental Care?
When any of the following circumstances occur, emergency dental care is necessary:
- A tooth gets cracked or dislodged due to trauma, accident, or while eating;
- You have a dental restoration that is damaged or displaced;
- You have a severe toothache that causes excruciating pain.
If left untreated, these complications can require an emergency room visit for the pain and escalate to tooth extraction. Although medical doctors can provide treatment for some dental issues, it is essential to remember that a dentist is the best professional to handle dental problems. If you need emergency dental care, contact Tahquitz Dental Group!

Damaged Teeth and Dental Appliances
If your tooth, crown, bridge, implant, or any other restoration becomes loose or dislodged, please save the pieces if possible and bring them with you to our Tahquitz Dental Group office without delay. Before arriving, please follow these instructions:
- Gently clean the affected tooth or restoration using water, saliva, or milk.
- Try to reposition the tooth or restoration in its original place. If this is not possible, keep the tooth between your cheek and gum.
- Bite down on a wet towel or tea bag to secure the tooth or restoration in place.
- Use a cold compress on the cheek to reduce swelling.
- Tell us what happened at (760) 325-6480 and make your way to our office without delay.
With our emergency dental services available at our Tahquitz Dental Group practice, it is sometimes possible to preserve your tooth and maintain your oral health.
Numerous issues can lead to a sore tooth. If a visual inspection or intraoral photography fails to reveal the underlying problem, x-rays can assist in identifying the root cause. Some possible causes of tooth pain are:
- Tooth decay that is severe and infecting the roots;
- A bacterial infection causing an abscess;
- Abnormalities in the oral cavity, such as cysts or tumors.
Upon examination, we identify the underlying problem and provide a solution. Toothaches do not subside on their own or through just taking painkillers. Eliminating the source of the pain is the only way to address the issue effectively.
When it comes to dental emergencies, we are equipped to address your dental problems promptly and efficiently, enabling you to resume your regular activities. Trust the Tahquitz Dental Group for quality emergency dentistry services!
