Your friendly neighborhood dentist here to save the day!

Emergency Dentistry

We try to always leave a chair open in our schedule so we can see patients with emergencies on the same day. We also have a 24/7 text hotline in case something happens after-hours: (626) 538-5507

Why are you in pain?

Exam & Testing


There are many sources of pain in your mouth from periodontal (gum) issues to cavities to TMJ pain to nerve pain. Before discussing treatment options, we will take X-rays and conduct several tests to figure out what is wrong and we will do our best to take you out of pain so you can sleep peacefully or go back to working on the same day.



Tooth fell out?

Tooth Reimplantation


Time is of the essence! If you or your child gets a tooth knocked out, immediately store the tooth in milk or saline. Try to handle it only by the crown (actual tooth part) and not the root. Immediately book an appointment. Success is very much dependent on how quickly you can come see us to reimplant the tooth!



If you crack a tooth

Crown, Bridge, Veneers


Taking care of a cracked tooth is urgent and immediate treatment could possibly save the tooth from infection or worse. Book an appointment today if you feel you fractured a tooth. We also perform bridges which can be a less costly way to replace a missing tooth vs. an implant.



Even some wisdom teeth

Extractions and Bone Grafting


We love saving teeth, but when they are restorable and broken down, they can often be prone to infections. We can perform many wisdom teeth extractions as well and our in-house specialist can even provide IV sedation so you can be as relaxed as possible during the procedure. Bone grafting is key to improve the prognosis of an implant.




Fillings without the drill

Silver Diamine Fluoride


If you have high dental anxiety or need to save up for definitive treatment, we are empathetic and have possible solutions that can help. Often used in dental missions around the world, Silver Diamine Fluoride can potentially stop the spread of a cavity, buying you time for definitive treatment. It’s great to prevent the need for a root canal (temporarily) and for children intolerant of any drilling.



If caught early enough

Filling Restorations


If you are diligent with checkups and experience sudden pain, most of the time, all you need is a filing for a small cavity. Our thorough exam will point out the source and severity of your pain to confirm. We also carry bioactive materials such as Fuji glass ionomers that have been proven to be great for deeper cavities and remineralizing teeth. We also never use mercury in our fillings.



If you have sensitive teeth

Desensitizer


Our thorough exam will identify the source of your pain and we can present you with treatment plan options once we have all the information. But, one treatment option that is available in our clinic that is not available in many others is desensitizer. Two coats of dentin desensitizer are applied to areas such as exposed roots near the gum lines that are sensitive to cold, heat, or teeth brushing. This is a great conservative and affordable option to treat sensitivity.



If you have a cavity to the pulp

Endodontics


If your tooth is infected and you choose to restore it instead of an extraction, a root canal is likely. However, there are other options such as indirect or direct pulp capping that we can try. These treatment alternatives have high success rates and we can discuss these options with you in detail if they are relevant to your case.


You are in control

WHAT TO EXPECT



Your first appointment

EXAM


Like mentioned above, we need to identify the source of your pain. We do this with X-rays and several tests that can narrow down whether the problem is periodontal (gum), odontogenic (tooth), TMJ, etc. in nature or even multi-faceted. Emergency exams are not our comprehensive exams. We will only have time to look at one issue.


BOOK A VISIT

Almost every insurance accepted

TREATMENT PLAN


After the exam, Donna, our front desk receptionist, will clearly provide prices for any treatment you need and desire to do. Our clinic accepts almost every single dental insurance. Additionally, we are a partner with Care Credit and can provide up to 12 months of interest free financing!


On your next appointment

TREATMENT


We will do our best to take you out of pain and perform definitive treatment on the same day. In dentistry, definitive treatment (and not painkillers) is often the only way to take you out of pain. If we are unable to help you, we have a strong referral network with only the best specialists in the area and we have developed good relationships with them so they will be more inclined to see you on the same day.

OTHER SERVICES WE OFFER


Treating all children ages 1+

PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY


Getting kids into the dentist office early is important. Some of the things we look for are possible speech impediments, early cavities, and proper teeth alignment. For kids that cannot tolerate needles or drills, we have solutions such as Silver Diamine Fluoride™ which arrests cavities without the use of a drill!


Not sure about a treatment plan?

We are more than happy to give second opinions through a free 15 minute consult. Often times, we can schedule you in on the same day. Call our office to see if there are available appointments.
