Many patients ask about the definition of a dental emergency. Dental emergencies are situations that often occur unexpectedly that can affect one’s oral health and wellness. Some examples of dental emergencies include:
- Lost restorations such as crowns and bridges
- Loose restorations
- Partial dentures that need to be adjusted
- Broken teeth or tooth structures
- Knocked out teeth
- Broken orthodontics
- Severe toothaches
It is important for a family to have a dentist available for their emergency dental situations. Dr. Sarkis Aznavour and his team provide this. During business hours, patients can contact the office and get in for a same-day appointment when available, and our on-call number provides assistance for immediate needs when possible.
What to Do in Case of an Emergency
First, if it is a serious medical emergency, we urge patients to contact 911 first. If the situation requires the assistance of a dentist, our office should be called at (661) 210-4280. Our staff can either schedule patients for an appointment the same day or can guide patients through what they can do until they can be seen by our staff the following business day. Our team can prescribe pain killers for patients who are experiencing severe toothaches until they can get into the office, or can walk patients through the process of preserving their restoration or natural tooth until they can be assisted. We want our patients to trust us and know that we care for them just as we do our own family!
