Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies seem to be a fact of life that affect all of us at one time or another. Even if you take excellent care of your oral health, you can chip a tooth or suffer an injury during sports.
There’s no doubt a dental emergency can turn your world upside down, especially if you’re in pain. Whatever your problem, the team at PhD Dental is here to provide the treatment and relief you need. If you have a dental emergency in LA, Inglewood, Lynwood, or Pico Rivera, you can count on us to treat you as soon as possible so you can get back to enjoying life.
What’s Your Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Lost crown or filling
- Dental infections
- Knocked-out teeth
The one thing all these emergencies have in common is that you need a solution and you need it right away. We provide the following treatments on an emergency basis to our patients in need:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Root canals
- Tooth extractions
- Replace knocked-out teeth
How to Know When to Call Us
If you’re not sure that your problem is a dental emergency, call us anyway. We are always happy to hear from our patients, and we’d rather spend a few minutes finding you don’t need to come in immediately than have you suffer needlessly.
Some emergencies, like a chipped tooth or lost crown, need to be treated as soon as possible, but you may not need to stop what you’re doing and run to one of our LA dental offices. Others like severe pain or a knocked-out tooth need immediate treatment because in both cases our chances of saving the tooth are best if we see you right away.
The Best Way to Avoid Dental Emergencies
Emergencies like having a tooth knocked out in an accident are unavoidable. However, you can prevent many others just by maintaining good oral hygiene habits and seeing us twice a year for preventive dental exams and cleanings.
During these appointments, our dentists will check all your fillings and restorations to make sure they’re secure and in good condition. We’ll check for signs of decay or gum disease that could flare up and cause discomfort and the need for an emergency visit. It’s better for your oral health and your peace of mind to see us routinely to prevent problems rather than waiting until you’re in urgent need of dental care.
Please Call Us and We’ll See You As Soon As Possible
If you think you need an emergency dentist in LA, Inglewood, Lynwood, or Pico Rivera, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll listen to your concerns, give you instructions for handling the situation until we see you, and make a dental appointment to get you on the schedule as soon as possible.
We always leave time in our schedule to see emergency patients, which means we can probably see you the same day, especially if you’re in pain. Please call one of our dental offices so we can provide the relief you need.
