Consultation

Our staff is dedicated to caring for you. If you are experiencing dental pain or sensitivity, don’t wait for the pain to get worse; call our office today at (909) 815-4255.  Before anything can be done, the dentist needs to determine what the actual problem is. This generally happens with x-rays or CBCT scans. The patient will sometimes know the cause of pain, especially if they have had treatment in the area. At other times, the patient will call and express the pain in a general area but no further clues about the source of discomfort. The dental care provider will look for signs of concern, such as gum inflammation or infection. Exposed nerves are also a common cause of an emergency visit. This can be very painful. Other things the dentist will look for include any damage to wisdom teeth or crowns falling out. A broken tooth can also be a concern, especially if it has any type of rough edge. Sometimes, the problem is under the gum, such as a wisdom tooth that is trying to break through.

Diagnosis and Treatment

It’s common for patients to visit an emergency dentist because of pain. If you have pain, be sure to describe it clearly. After an examination, your dentist will take every step possible to work on the underlying cause of that pain. However, medications needed, such as antibiotics, can take several hours to kick in.

That is why the first step is often to provide some in-office pain treatment. The use of painkillers may be necessary after you go home as well. In the office, an injection into the impacted area often offers faster relief. After this, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics is necessary to clear up any swelling or infection present.

Pain Relief

Pain treatment may be possible during an emergency dental visit, but that doesn’t mean the problem can be treated entirely during this appointment. Fixing the underlying problem may take an additional visit. During your emergency appointment, the dentist will take any steps possible to help relieve your pain. 

Our emergency practitioner can help in many situations, including:

  • Toothache relief

  • Oral pain relief

  • Emergency tooth extraction

  • Restoration of a loose filling or crown (sometimes a temporary solution)

  • Dental infection care

  • Wisdom tooth pain management

  • Much more...

When you come in for dental care on an emergency basis, you may not be in the right frame of mind to make decisions about your treatment and the costs involved. You can get help for pain now and then make decisions later.

Expenses Concern You?

In cases of severe pain, some people choose not to visit an emergency dentist for fear of the cost. We offer an in-house finance plan and optional financing to help offset expenses. The most important thing is getting the help you need as quickly as possible.
