We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise, and at Monarch View Dental Care, we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Whether it is something as simple as a tooth filling or a more complicated procedure, we can provide you with assistance. If the problem arises outside of our office hours, our answering service will forward your message to our dentist.
The most common reasons our patients need emergency dentistry are accidents or toothaches. Toothaches can be caused by infection or injury. If you are suffering from a toothache, don’t hesitate to call us immediately. We will get you in as soon as possible and figure out what is going on so we can relieve your pain.
A tooth that has been knocked out or cracked is perhaps the most critical dental emergency. If your tooth has been knocked out in an accident, seeing a dentist as soon as possible is vital to saving your tooth. In the meantime before you get to the dentist, you can take steps to keep your tooth alive, including gently trying to place the tooth back in its socket (without touching the root), keeping the tooth between your gums and lip, placing it in a glass of milk or placing it in an ADA-approved tooth preservation kit. If your dental emergency is potentially life-threatening, you should go to the emergency room.
Even if you have never been to our office before, Dr. Judy Tiffany and her team are happy to help you during a dental emergency. Please contact us immediately at 949-496-1222 if you are in urgent need of emergency dental care in Dana Point, California, or a neighboring area.
