When you’re in pain from a broken or infected tooth, you usually need to see a dentist immediately. Dental emergencies don’t wait. In fact, they’re one of the most painful things you can experience (next to earaches or a kidney stone.) That’s why Encino Dental Studio provides emergency treatment as well as evening and Saturday hours to accommodate same day care.
Types of Dental Emergencies
Some of the most common same-day emergencies that we treat, include:
- Broken teeth
- Knocked-out tooth
- Filling or crown falling out
- Abscessed tooth
- Swelling or bleeding
- Broken dentures
In most cases we’ll want to see you for an emergency appointment within the hour. The sooner you can get to our office, the quicker Dr. Jamsheed can get you out of pain. But not only that; a broken or knocked-out tooth usually needs to be repaired within the hour for best results. Once you get to our office, we’ll apply numbing medication to get you out of pain.
When you finally feel comfortable, we’ll talk about what’s going on and the options you have to treat your tooth. It could be that you need something like a small filling, an antibiotic, or may even need to have the tooth extracted. Bottom line, Dr. Jamsheed will do everything he can to help you save and preserve your natural smile.
Even if you’re a new patient who has never been to our office before, we encourage you to contact us.
