Emergency Dentistry Tarzana, CA
If there is one constant in life, it is that dental emergencies will occur, and when they do, it will probably be at the most inconvenient time. At the dental office of Dr. Nargiz Zadeh, we understand the helpless feeling that comes with being in pain and not knowing what to do next.
Whenever anything out of the ordinary occurs with your oral health, call our Tarzana dental office first. We offer prompt emergency dentistry and always leave extra time in our schedule for patients who have dental needs that can’t wait.
Dental Emergencies We Treat
As an experienced and compassionate dentist, Dr. Zadeh has a deep desire to help people, and it shows in the one-on-one care she provides to each patient. Patients in Tarzana know they can turn to her for relief and reassurance when they experience any of the following emergencies.
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Lost fillings or crowns
- Bleeding or swollen gums
- Abscessed or infected teeth
- Jaw pain and swelling
- Dental trauma
This is not meant to be a complete list, so if you have another problem you don’t see here, we can help you with that too. Just call us, and a member of our dental team will assist you with care and compassion.
In some cases, an emergency appointment may not give us enough time to complete your treatment. If this is the case, rest assured that we will make you comfortable and stabilize your situation until our next available appointment.
Critical Dental Emergencies
There are everyday dental emergencies like a broken tooth, and then there are urgent situations where our Tarzana dentist needs to see you right away. These are typically situations where we need to relieve your pain, reduce swelling, or take steps to save a tooth.
A severe, painful toothache that limits your ability to think clearly is an emergency that needs immediate attention. This kind of pain indicates that you are in imminent danger of losing a tooth to decay or infection, and we must take steps to save it.
If you have jaw pain or swelling, we need to see you right away as it could signal an infection or abscess that can become life-threatening if not treated immediately.
Dental trauma, including a knocked-out tooth, is a highly critical emergency. We have about two hours in which we may be able to successfully re-implant the tooth back in its socket.
In all these cases, call our Tarzana emergency dentist right away. Until we see you, you can get relief from pain and swelling by taking OTC pain relievers and using cold compresses on and off your face at 20-minute intervals.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, have someone call so we can prepare for your arrival. Place the tooth in your cheek pocket or under your tongue to protect it but don’t touch the root. Otherwise, place the tooth in a container of saliva or milk and bring it with you to our office.
