Actual Patient Review

Emergency Dental Care Review ~ Saul A.

I was really glad I caved in and finally got my impacted/infected wisdom teeth extracted. I had been putting it off for years but this past week it just became too much to bear. So I called in an emergency extraction at several places but none would take me that same day (6/16/20), then I came across this one and was immediately taken in for X-rays. Got prescribed antibiotics and pain killers along with an appointment for surgery on (6/19/20). I’m really happy with the work done, it was more nerve wracking than anything, but once I was getting worked on… It went off with a cinch. Quick and painless procedure. Two wisdom teeth and a molar taken out. I highly recommend coming here, I never thought it’d be this fast and easy. Will be going back to get more work done later this month.

Thanks a lot!

Emergency dentistry can encompass a number of situations. Most cases involve an injury, such as a broken or knocked out tooth. In other cases, patients might have a severe toothache and require a root canal or other treatment to relieve their pain and discomfort. Patients can call Dr. Luu if they have a false tooth that has come off of their partial denture, have a loose or broken restoration, or are experiencing any other emergency that may require immediate assistance. At Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley, we understand that not everything goes as planned, and we’re here to help whenever you need it.

Patients who have a tooth that has been knocked out should keep the tooth to allow Dr. Luu the opportunity to attempt to replace it. Patients are encouraged to put the lost tooth in saline solution or milk if possible. However, because everyone reacts differently to trauma, not all lost teeth can be placed back in the mouth. Regardless, Dr. Luu does offer a variety of cosmetic procedures that can assist patients in restoring their smile after a traumatic occurrence.
