Whether it is a severe toothache or an injury, emergency dentistry gives patients peace of mind when it comes to the unexpected. Patients of Dr. Luu at Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley can enjoy the benefits of an on-call dentist for emergencies. In fact, new patients can also use Dr. Luu’s personalized answering service regardless of what time of day or night they need assistance.
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.
