  • Visit your dentist twice a year for professional dental exams and cleanings
  • Wear a mouthguard when participating in contact sports
  • Avoid foods that may chip or crack a tooth, such as hard candies

Common Dental Emergencies

At Dentist of Gardena, our experienced staff and dentist are prepared to treat all types of dental emergencies. Some of the most common dental emergencies we treat are:

  • Broken tooth - Seeing a dentist right away is crucial to save a tooth that has been broken. To reduce pain and swelling before you get to the office, we recommend using a cold compress.
  • Tooth loss - When a tooth is lost due to accident or trauma, it is important to quickly preserve it by rinsing any debris from the roots (while avoiding removing tissue) and storing it in a cup of warm milk until you arrive at the dentist. We will then work to relieve your discomfort as we try to save your tooth.
  • Object stuck between teeth - If you have an object lodged between your teeth, we recommend that you let a dentist remove it. Trying to remove the object yourself can cause damage to the surrounding gums and pain.
  • Extreme gum pain - Intense pain in your gums can be debilitating. It may be caused by an infection or other serious issue, and it is important to be evaluated by a dentist so we can determine the source of your gum discomfort and provide you with relief.
  • Intense tooth pain - Extreme tooth pain can be caused by a variety of oral health issues, including decay, an exposed root or nerve, or a broken filling or crown. Our emergency dentist will determine the cause of your tooth pain and get you out of pain fast.
