About Emergency Dental Care
At Beachwood Dental, our patient's needs and care are our top priorities. In certain cases, same day emergency care may be required if a patient is suffering from severe tooth pain, a broken tooth, crown displacements, or other conditions that require immediate attention. Our dentists strive to provide prompt, same-day care for patients who are unable to wait for regular business hours. We encourage our patients suffering from an emergency to call our main office in Los Alamitos, CA and state their condition as an emergency. Our helpful medical personnel will give further directions and encourage you to seek attention during our operating hours. If patients are unable to reach our office, then we encourage them to visit their nearest emergency room to acquire immediate care.
What to Expect
For after-hours emergency dental care, a patient should call our office and leave a message with our answering service. Most emergencies can be taken care of with a prescription called into a pharmacy, and the patient scheduled to visit the office first thing in the morning. If the patient has a true emergency of bleeding, intense pain, and/or serious infection, then help should be immediately sought at the nearest emergency room.
Our dentist will usually schedule a follow-up appointment to check on the patient’s progress or finish the needed procedures in aftercare. We will give each patient specific care instructions that should be followed for maximum relief. Patients should continue to schedule annual dental exams and bi-annual dental cleanings to catch and prevent any future problems that may require emergency care.
