Emergency Dental Service

A dental emergency such as severe toothache or dental injury can be a stressful and painful experience. That’s why our aim is to be as flexible as possible to ensure an emergency dentist can see you within 24 hours. We are available to answer your questions 24/7.

A dental emergency includes any pain, swelling, or discomfort in the mouth. This includes the gums, teeth, and jaw. A toothache is the most common form of dental emergency. Severe toothache with swelling could indicate an abscess or infection and requires an urgent dental appointment, preferably within the next day or two. Please note that if you have suffered from a head injury, if you have unstoppable bleeding, or if swelling makes it difficult to breathe, then please head directly to the emergency room and schedule a follow up with the dentist.
Once you arrive at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care, you will be greeted by our calming dental staff that will help alleviate any anxiety you have. Dr. Bijan Afar will give you a thorough exam, take x-rays if needed and then come up with a treatment plan for your dental issue. He will then answer any questions you have and walk you through your plan, every step of the way. Remember - tooth pain will not just “go away” and could be indicative of a deeper issue or even an infection. But there is no need to worry - we are here to help. Let Mid-Wilshire Dental Care get you out of pain as soon as possible. Call us at (323) 931-2000 or click the 'appointments' button below.

What Should I Do in a Dental Emergency?

We will get you in and get you out of toothache pain as quickly as possible, but until then, here are a few things you can do.

    Milk Bath: If you have a tooth knocked out or broken, submerge the tooth or broken fragment in milk (or salt water).
    Salt Water Rinse: If you have cut or damaged your lips, tongue or gums rinse with salt water and put gauze on the affected area.
    Denture Glue: If a crown or filling falls out make an appointment right away; you may use denture glue to secure it temporarily.

“Needing to find a dentist in a hurry due to a toothache, I felt very fortunate to have found Dr. Poneh; she was able to see me the very next day. Not only did she promptly take care of my immediate needs, but she and her staff got me back on a program of returning to proper dental health and care. Not only have I found Dr. Poneh and her staff to be consummate professionals, but they treat their patients with the utmost respect and courtesy. Having always had extreme anxiety about visiting the dentist, I found that Dr. Poneh and her wonderful staff made it much easier for me to return for regular care.”
