What is emergency dental care?
If you experience a dental emergency, we provide emergency dental care to meet your needs and care for your smile. Our caring dentists offer emergency appointments after hours and on weekends to ensure that you receive the high-quality dental care you need when you most need it. Emergency dental care in Glendale, California includes treatment for dental emergencies such as knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth, toothaches, and injuries to the soft tissues (gums, tongue, lips, or cheeks). We are committed to scheduling your appointment as soon as possible.
Do I need to go to the ER?
If you have suffered an injury to the head, go to the emergency room (ER) or urgent care immediately, regardless of whether your mouth is injured. If you are experiencing severe blood loss or bleeding that will not stop, go to the ER.
My tooth hurts. What should I do?
If you are suffering from a toothache, you can rinse your mouth with warm water and use floss to remove any food stuck between teeth. If your mouth is swollen, apply a cold compress to the outside of the cheek or mouth. Call T.F. Chen DDS as soon as possible to schedule a visit with our dentists. We also recommend that you call us immediately for an appointment if your tooth is chipped or broken, knocked out, or extruded (partially knocked out), or if you lose a filling, crown, or other restoration. Please feel free to contact our knowledgeable dental team with any other questions and concerns. We are happy to assist you! You may reach us at 818-502-1991.
