Our Urgent Dental Care Treatment Process in Santa Ana, CA
Atlantic Children & Family Dentistry handles cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry for infants and adults. We’ll ask you a few important questions when you call for an emergency dental appointment. Your answers will help us know whether you have an emergency or a problem that can wait until your next dental appointment.
If the problem qualifies as an emergency, we’ll schedule your appointment with an emergency dentist immediately.
During the appointment, Dr. Chang and her team will examine the affected area and take x-rays if necessary to determine the treatment that can best resolve the dental issue. Some of our treatment options include:
- Root canals
- Tooth extractions
- Dental bonding
- Dental crowns
- Periodontal treatment
In some cases, it’s impractical to complete your treatment during an emergency dental visit. In that scenario, we’ll provide you with temporary relief and then pencil you in for an appointment at a later date to complete the treatment.
How to Avoid Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies, such as ones due to accidental physical trauma, aren’t always avoidable. But for others, you can prevent them by being more proactive with your oral health. Here are a few things you can do:
- Keep up with your dental exams and teeth cleaning appointments. It will help us find dental problems before they get out of hand.
- Be more intentional about your oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
- Avoid eating sweets, highly acidic foods, and other foods that are not good for oral health.
- Wear a mouthguard when taking part in sporting activities.
