What You Will Need to Bring to Your West Los Angeles Emergency Dentist Appointment
Once you’ve given us a call to secure an appointment for you, the best thing to do while you’re waiting is to gather what you’ll need for said appointment.
Even though this may be common sense, we want to remind you to bring a piece of personal identification, such as your driver’s license, for example. Any recent paperwork or documentation, even if it’s a receipt that details the treatment you received, from a visit to your regular dentist is also something you should look for and bring, as well.
It won’t take long for us to book your appointment with a West Los Angeles emergency dentist. Once you’ve gotten the call back from us to give you the time, date, and location of your appointment, we highly suggest that you call ahead to check if your dental coverage under your current insurance provider, if this is applicable to you, will be accepted by the emergency dentist. If not, it doesn’t hurt to ask for a quote just so you know what to expect.
Finally, make sure that you arrive at the office with a minimum of 15 minutes to spare. You will need some extra time to fill out necessary paperwork, ask any questions, and let the emergency dentist and their team know about any anxiety or fears you may have. Don’t be scared to speak up, they have experience in keeping their patients calm and comfortable.

Common Emergencies Treated by Emergency Dentists
Knowing a bit about the common emergencies treated by emergency dentists and what you can do to help your situation until you go to the appointment we have booked for you is the best way to turn the situation around to your advantage.
However, you must remember to keep other injuries in mind, if you have any. For example, if you’ve been in a car accident, make sure you don’t have a concussion or any other form of direct head injury or trauma to the head, in general.
Dental emergencies don’t care what you have planned for the rest of the week, but knowing what the most common ones are and what you can do about them will help immensely.
Lost and/or Knocked Out Teeth
Even though losing a tooth, whether it was knocked out or lost some other way, it’s important to not panic and check yourself for any other injuries, especially trauma to the head, before you do anything else. If all else is fine and you have no other serious injuries, you’re clear to try and find your tooth.
Once you’ve found it, make sure you don’t pick it up by the root, which is identified as the bottom of the tooth. Doing so may damage the tooth to the point of no return, ensuring that the emergency dentist will not be able to implant it back into the empty socket.
For the time being, until the day of your appointment, you will need to make sure that the tooth is properly preserved. If you’re comfortable with doing so and the lost tooth and empty socket haven’t taken too much damage, try putting it back in yourself as a temporary measure. Otherwise, getting a cup of water or milk and storing the tooth in there is the next best way to keep it preserved.
An Abscessed Tooth or an Oral Infection
If you suspect that you’re suffering from an abscessed tooth or oral infection, even for just a second, you need to call us straight away. Infections, no matter where they occur, are extremely dangerous. Oral infections destroy the roots of your teeth, plague the tissues of your mouth, and run rampant, further, through your bloodstream, which can lead to blood poisoning and death.
Though most patients only realize they’re suffering from one once the pain sets in, you can use a compact or small mirror to check your mouth yourself. You may also need a penlight or a flashlight, too. If you spot anything that looks like a pimple or a red bump, in general, call us.
Losing a Crown or a Filling
Crowns and fillings are put in place to restore and protect your teeth, but they don’t last forever. If you’ve lost your crown or filling, you need to take action quickly. Leaving the tooth it came from exposed without protection may result in having to get an emergency tooth extraction as a result of further damage.
Dental cement, gauze, and a cotton ball are all great ways to protect the tooth until your appointment with the West Los Angeles emergency dentist. No matter which method you choose to use, make sure something is protecting the tooth at all times.
Having an Emergency Tooth Extraction
Going for an emergency tooth extraction, or being told that you need to have one done, can be a scary experience if you’re unprepared for it. Knowing a little bit about how the procedure works and what will be required of you after is a great way to ease some of the stress and anxiety
Once the emergency dentist administers something to freeze the extraction site so you don’t feel any pain, and checks with you after a few minutes to make sure it’s working as it should, incisions will be made to help loosen up the tooth.
Next, the emergency dentist will use a set of dental pliers that aren’t as scary as you probably expect them to be, he or she will rock the tooth around until it pops out. Sometimes, however, this doesn’t always work. If this is the case, the tooth will be broken up into smaller pieces and removed in fragments.
Finally, once you’ve relaxed for a couple of minutes, you will be given a strict aftercare routine by the emergency dentist for you to follow at home. Properly following their instructions will ensure that the extraction site stays clean, infection will be avoided, and that it won’t take very long for everything to heal up nicely.
When to See an Emergency Room Doctor vs an Emergency Dentist
It’s extremely important that you know when you need an emergency room doctor or an emergency dentist as soon as an incident or accident occurs. For example, if you’ve sustained head trauma during a car accident, but you’ve also lost a couple of teeth, do you see the emergency room doctor or the emergency dentist first?
An emergency room doctor cannot save your teeth, but they can manage your pain, treat minor and major injuries, and, more importantly, treat your head trauma.
Emergency dentists can’t treat your head trauma, but they can save your teeth, help manage your pain to a certain extent, and treat any oral injuries you may have.
