Signs and Symptoms of a Dental Emergency

- A lost tooth
- A broken crown
- A fever
When in doubt, call our office. The staff at our Woodland Hills, CA dental office can quickly assess your situation and restore your oral health.
Preventing Dental Emergencies
The most common dental emergencies are infections. Make sure to visit your dentist regularly, adopt a sound oral health routine, and never skip dental cleanings.
During your dental cleaning, in fact, you can ask our skilled hygienist for brushing and flossing tips to utilize at home. These tips will also help prevent dental emergencies.
If you notice changes in your teeth or gums—sensitivity, mild pain, or other—schedule an appointment with our Woodland Hills, CA dental office immediately. These symptoms can be early signs of an infection, which lead to an emergency in the future.
Finally, if you participate in a sport, always wear proper headgear and an athletic mouth guard.
