in Los Angeles, CA

When unexpected dental issues arise, we understand they can feel stressful or scary. If ignored, a single dental emergency has the power to sabotage your overall health. If you’re suffering from a dental emergency and need a same-day appointment with a dentist in Mid-Wilshire, look no further than Dr. Daniel Adelpour. At BLVD Dental Aesthetics, our emergency dentist is well-versed in emergency dental care and can provide quick relief and care.

What is a dental emergency?

Generally, any oral health issue that requires urgent treatment to alleviate severe discomfort, cease bleeding, save a tooth from extraction, or curb life-threatening infections is considered a dental emergency. Dental emergencies stand out against standard general dentistry issues because they warrant immediate care.

Signs You Might Have a Dental Emergency

If you’ve never experienced a dental emergency, it might be challenging to understand what is considered one. Thankfully, true dental emergencies are rare, but some symptoms that could necessitate emergency dental services include:

  • Toothache
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Cracked filling
  • Bleeding from the mouth that doesn’t stop after 30 minutes
  • Fever accompanied by a bad taste in the mouth or pus along the gum line

Emergency Dentistry Expectations

Our BLVD Dental Aesthetics team will schedule an appointment as soon as possible, many times a same-day appointment can be achieved. 

Dr. Adelpour will base his course of action on the severity and type of dental injury. For instance, if you have a deep tooth infection that cannot be saved through root canal therapy, Dr. Adelpour might suggest an emergency tooth extraction. 

Of course, if you need to see a same-day dentist but can’t due to time constraints or availability, seek immediate medical attention at the nearest emergency room. In this context, your life prevails dental concerns.

What to Do Until You Can Visit an Emergency Dental Clinic

Although a dental emergency can initially feel chaotic, it’s essential to remain calm until you can make it to our Los Angeles emergency dental clinic. After proactively calling 310-620-8060 to schedule an emergency dental visit at BLVD Dental Aesthetics, you can prepare for your visit by:

  • Keeping your mouth clean by gentle rinsing the mouth with salt water
  • Mitigating bleeding, swelling, and pain to the best of your ability
  • Preserve any knocked-out teeth or fillings in a glass of milk
  • Asking a family member or friend to join you for your emergency dental appointment in case you need someone to drive you home
