Do you make same day appointments and How do I know if it's an emergency?

tooth and first aid kit | Dentist Glendale CaIf you are having a dental emergency, we make every effort to get you in as soon as possible. Usually, it is the same day! 

Emergencies usually can't wait.  

If you have extreme pain, swelling, can't open your mouth, increasing pain that doesn't go away for a couple of days, if you fell or hit your mouth and teeth on something and just want to have your lips, teeth, and gums checked out...this is what we call emergencies.  If the tooth has been sensitive on and off for a month or two, if the gums are tender on and off for a month or two, if you were in an accident last year and want to get things checked out....not really categorized as an emergency, but you still should get the situation checked out.

If you find yourself in a different state or part of the country, give me a call and I can direct you what to do.  If you call after hours and need to leave a message (which is rare b/c usually I pick up the calls after the office is closed) then we will get back to you usually that same night or first thing in the morning.

If you're still not sure if it's an emergency, call us and we can triage it for you as well!
