Any dental problem that requires immediate attention to save the tooth, or to stop bleeding, or to save yourself from infection, is included under the category of dental emergencies. For instance, swelling that is increasing in size with acutely worsening pain indicates a rapid spread of infection.
The following are a few more examples of what we would consider to be dental emergencies that require prompt attention
In case of a dental emergency, please call us during business hours or if it is after hours, please reach out to us via our Live Chat or Quick Contact form on our website to get the right assistance. In the meantime, there are some ways to protect your teeth in the following situations while you try to get professional help:
If your tooth is completely knocked out, hold the crown portion with two fingertips and gently wash the tooth in the running tap water. Cover the tooth in the saline solution/Hanks balanced solution/own saliva/raw milk and bring it to us within 20 minutes. You can also place the tooth inside your cheek.
In the case of swelling, bleeding, misalignment, or pain, you can keep cold compression over the affected area. However, make sure to ask us before taking any over the counter painkiller, as some can increase bleeding and some may not be suitable for your health condition. You can call us anytime, and we are happy to help you schedule a video or in-person consultation.
We have a highly qualified team of doctors that can compassionately help you to deal with your dental emergency. In most cases, dental emergencies are seen and treated on the same day. We also offer video consultations. If you feel you have a dental emergency, please contact us right away to get prompt support and care. Dental emergencies are not meant to be delayed. Visiting us as early as possible makes a huge difference in saving or losing your teeth.
Dr. Dobee IS AMAZING, she helped me with my deep clean and continued to follow up with me afterwards to make sure I was experiencing minimal pain throughout the recovery process. She really cares about her patients and I HIGHLY recommend her!
Wow Dr. Dobee is by far the best dentist I've ever been to. She's not only really intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing but she's also very funny and makes the whole experience of going to a dentist a really great one.
I couldn't be happier with my care at Dr Dobee's office! Everyone there is amazing and thanks to Dr Dobee I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Especially thanks to Des at the front desk for making all my visits seamless. Love you guys!
Best dentist I've had and so glad I found her…outstanding in her field but also great interpersonal skills and sensitive to her patients needs. Staff Joanna and Des are professional and make patient feel comfortable and welcomed. I enjoy my visits and it is because the staff and Dentists are ON IT!
I had some problems with my insurance which the front desk took care of and they were super friendly while waiting for responds regarding my insurance. My visit was very informative also the treatment plans weren't pushed and forced like other dentists do. So they're going to be my place for dental treatments from now on!
I'm so fortunate to have found dr Dobee !
She's a beautiful soul! Very caring & professional !
Very trusting ! I have had the bad luck to get bad dentistry practiced upon my teeth , Dobee has been do everything she can to help me out with the budget I have . Her work is worth every penny !
Dr. Dobee has a heart of gold and the skills of an amazing dentist. I had the pleasure of having her take care of my teeth and make solid recommendations on what I need for future work. I walked out with super clean teeth and a well taken care of smile.
I came here because of the yelp reviews and they didn't disappoint. Great availability and friendly staff.
A trip to the dentist you will actually enjoy! It's the first time I've ever looked forward to my next dental appointment. I mean what dentist do you know that's had a private dinner with Obama??
