Emergency Dentistry in Northridge & Manhattan Beach
Dental emergencies can cause stress, disrupt your schedule, and make day-to-day life painful. It is best not to put off treatment. Our gentle and compassionate dentists, Dr. Joel Gould and Dr. Gabe Adorjan, are committed to treating your dental emergencies quickly and effectively so you can get back to living life again.
Many patients hesitate to call when they experience unexpected tooth pain, but tooth-related pain rarely resolves on its own and waiting may cause your condition to worsen, putting your teeth and your oral health at risk.
What Constitutes a True Dental Emergency?
If you are asking yourself whether you are having a dental emergency, give us a call. We can ask a series of questions that will help us determine if you need an emergency dental appointment. Both our Northridge and Manhattan Beach dental offices try to treat dental emergencies on the same day.
Some common dental emergencies include:
- A broken tooth
- A lost restoration
- Tooth discoloration
- Tooth trauma
- Extreme sensitivity
If you experience any of the above symptoms, contact us right away and let us guide you back to good health and comfort.
Your Dental Emergency Appointment
If you are an existing patient, you can count on us to address your concerns even in the event of an after-hours dental emergency. Call our office and follow the instructions. One of our dentists will get back to you quickly. If you are a new patient, you will still receive the same great care. Once we address your dental emergency and restore your comfort, we will set up a comprehensive exam so you can avoid similar problems in the future.
When you arrive in our office, we will take an x-ray of the affected area. We use high-resolution digital x-rays for the best images to make an accurate diagnosis. Once Dr. Gould or Dr. Adorjan diagnoses your condition, we will treat it to eliminate pain and then schedule any necessary follow-up appointments to complete your treatment.
How to Avoid Dental Emergencies
The best way to avoid dental emergencies is to stay current with your dental care. A small investment of time and money in prevention can save you thousands of dollars and countless hours during your lifetime.
We will recommend appropriate preventive treatment to help you stay healthy. Regular dental exams, professional dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, diagnostic x-rays, and a nightguard when applicable are all great investments in the future of your smile.
