Despite your best efforts and the backing of a professional dental team, emergencies can happen. In the event of an accident that damages the mouth or teeth, it is important to stay calm. Call our office as soon as possible, as emergency dental care should only be performed by a dentist. If the injury is serious or there is uncontrolled bleeding, please call 911 or get to a hospital emergency department right away.
Dr. Garcia is dedicated to serving the needs of patients in the Glendale area. He understands the impact that a dental emergency can have on your emotions and quality of life. That’s why time is allowed in the daily schedule for emergency appointments.
What is a dental emergency?
- Acute oral pain that keeps you from eating, sleeping, or taking part in normal daily activities.
- An abscessed tooth or on the gum.
- A broken or dislodged filling.
- Gums that are severely swollen or bleeding.
- Accident or injury that loosens or knocks a tooth out.
For the best chance of saving an avulsed (knocked out) tooth, please handle it only by the crown, not the root. Keep it moist in the socket, between your cheek and gum, or in a cup of milk. Call Dr. Garcia immediately!
Please don’t take a chance with your oral health. Call Bright Smiles Dental Studio in Glendale, even if you are not sure that your situation is an emergency. We are happy to provide calming advice.
