EMERGENCY DENTIST

Don’t let dental pain derail your day. Get relief fast with emergency dental treatment. If you have suffered facial trauma, have pain in your teeth, jaw, or face, or if you’ve damaged your dental restoration, we can help. All of the preventative care in the world can’t stop a dental emergency.

Dental emergencies should be dealt with promptly. Indeed, if you have a toothache that cannot be controlled with medication, you should seek emergency help. Because ignoring your dental pain won’t make it go away, it could actually make the situation worse. Call us during office hours to arrange a walk-in appointment.

Dental Emergencies in Beverly Hills

We handle all forms of dental emergencies, from chipped and broken teeth to dental abscesses. Broken dental implants and restorations such as bridges and crowns can also be emergencies. Visit an emergency dentist promptly to ensure your teeth aren’t damaged further.

In the case of facial trauma that loosens a tooth, we may be able to save the tooth if you seek help quickly. If you chip or break a tooth or restoration, seeking help from an emergency dentist service can help to prevent further damage to your teeth, mouth, and tongue. Dr. Samuel Lasry offers emergency dental care in Beverly Hills; perfect for those who live or work in the area.

What happens during an emergency dentist visit?

An emergency dentist visit aims to bring your relief from pain and prevent further damage. Dr. Samuel Lasry will use the Panorex X-ray to get a detailed look at your teeth, jaw, and sinuses. This will allow him to accurately diagnose the problem and create a treatment plan. He may also perform an emergency restoration, provide pain relief, or provide medication to treat a dental abscess.

Some dental work can be completed on the same day during your dental appointment, but some work will need a second appointment. If you aren’t registered with the Lasry Dental Clinic, you will be able to register as a new patient to continue treatment or resume treatment with your usual dentist. This can be helpful for patients who are traveling and away from home and need emergency dental care.

Dental emergencies and nervous patients

Dr. Samuel Lasry and his dental team are experienced in working with nervous patients. A trip to the dentist is nothing to be afraid of. Dental sedation is possible for those who find the experience daunting and overwhelming.

If you have any dental phobia, let our friendly team know about this when you call to book your appointment. The more we understand about your phobia, the more we will be able to offer treatment tailored to your needs.

What happens if I delay my treatment?

When you ignore severe dental pain, it might subside eventually, but this isn’t necessarily a good thing. In the case of dental decay, patients might assume that when their pain has gone their dental problems have gone. What is really happening is your dental tissue is dying, which kills the nerve endings and halts your pain. When your pain eventually returns, it will be worse than before.

In the case of facial trauma, you might feel better after a few days, but without an X-ray to assess the damage, it will be impossible to know if your teeth have been damaged. This could mean more problems in the future. If you suffer a facial trauma, you should always visit the dentist to assess the extent of the damage.

If you aren’t sure if your dental problem is an emergency, call our helpful office to schedule an appointment. If we believe that your dental problem is an emergency, we will schedule your appointment for the same day if possible, subject to availability.

What is a dental emergency?

A lot of patients avoid seeking out treatment as they don’t know if their dental problem is an emergency. The following would be considered dental emergencies:

  • Toothache that keeps you awake at night
  • Broken or chipped tooth
  • Facial injuries
  • Lost or broken dentures
  • Swelling in the face or neck
  • Persistent bleeding after dental work
  • Knocked out tooth

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, do not delay treatment. We have COVID-19 protocols in place to ensure that you are safe during your visit. If you are concerned about the risks, speak to our friendly reception staff to find out more about our precautions.

FAQ About Dental Emergencies

If you have dental insurance, emergency dental treatment will be included in your coverage. We accept all dental PPO insurance. We also offer support through access to financing to pay for your dental treatment. To make things easier, we will always inform you of your options and the associated cost before moving forward with treatment. This will ensure you are never surprised by your dental bill.

If your wisdom teeth are impacted, they may need to be removed. This can be a more complex procedure and will often need a follow-up appointment. If you have an infection at the site of the tooth, or if you are in pain as a result of the impacted wisdom tooth, we can prescribe pain medication and antibiotics. This will help you to manage your symptoms until you can book a follow-up appointment.

Yes, an emergency dentist can fill cavities in an infected tooth. If you have lost a filling, it’s important to have this replaced quickly to protect the tooth below it. If you lose a dental crown and are unable to salvage it, a temporary filling may be placed on top of the tooth to help protect the structure until you can have a replacement crown fitted.

In some emergencies, we will recommend a trip to the emergency room instead of our dental office. This is most likely in the case of head trauma if you haven’t visited the emergency room already. If you are looking for emergency dental care outside of office hours, the emergency room may be able to provide pain relief if needed until you can visit your dentist.

We are located in Beverly Hills at 1125 South Beverly Drive. There is parking available in our building and you can have your parking validated by our reception team.

If you seek emergency dental support quickly after knocking out an adult tooth, we may be able to save it. Locate the tooth and hold it by the crown and not the root. Rinse it under running water and try to put it back in place. If it will not go back in place easily, store it in milk until you can visit the dentist. If the dentist can restore your tooth, they will put the tooth back in place and hold it there with a splint. If you delay treatment, the tooth will die and you will not be able to put it back in place. You will then need to think about a bridge or implant restoration.
