Need an Emergency Dentist? Call Now!
If You’re Looking for an Emergency Dentist in the Irvine, CA area, You’re in the Right Place
When you need an emergency dentist, it’s comfortable to know that he’s the same person as your regular dentist. We know that dental emergencies don’t always happen during our office hours. That’s why we are a 24-hour emergency dentist!
If your dental emergency happens after hours, our answering service will immediately reach out to Dr. Mogari or Dr. Brown.
Are You Having a Dental Emergency?
If a filling falls out, it’s an urgent matter, but probably not worth calling 911 about. Rather, take a piece of sugarless gum (and it has to be sugarless, sugar will hurt your mouth) and put it into the filling. Then call us and arrange to see us as soon as possible.
This can be startling, but in most cases it can wait until the next day, when we can usually squeeze you into our schedule. When you chip a tooth, the most important thing is to save the pieces if you can. Put them in a glass of milk or a glass of salted warm water.
Place a cold cloth on your face to help reduce the pain. Important: Never attempt to glue your tooth fragments back in place. Never use any type of commercial adhesive, such as Super Glue, in your mouth or on your teeth. Glue will burn and damage your teeth and gums!
Persistent Tooth Ache
If you have a tooth ache, and it just doesn’t seem to go away, then you need to see a dentist as soon as possible. We can help treat the pain as well as identify the underlying cause. If your tooth hurts, floss around it and then rinse your mouth out with warm water. Never rub aspirin or other painkillers directly onto your gums as this will burn your gums!
If one (or more) of your teeth gets knocked out, try to save the broken tooth. Don’t touch the root – try to only handle the tooth by the parts you normally see above the gum line.
What to do: Rinse the tooth, including the roots, in water, then place the tooth in a glass of milk or, failing that, a glass of warm saltwater. Then call us immediately! Time is of the essence and we will treat you according to the severity of your injury.
Important: As with a chipped tooth, NEVER use SuperGlue or any other type of commercial adhesive on your tooth or in your mouth. It won’t help, and could result in serious complications.
When in Doubt, Give Us a Call
