When to Seek Emergency Dental Care

Any dental emergency, including persistent toothache, an injury to the tooth or the gums can be potentially serious and requires prompt medical treatment. Although most patients wait until the opening of their dentist’s office to seek help, it is important to know when to contact a San Diego emergency dentist for immediate medical attention and treatment.

My staff and I offer immediate appointments and are ready to serve dental emergency patients in Kensington, North Park, Normal Heights and throughout the San Diego area. Our dental emergency practice in Kensington serves dental emergency San Diego patients 24 hours a day, including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

If you experience any of the following dental problems, please contact our office for an immediate appointment.

  • Extremely painful and persistent toothache
  • Pain as a result of a chipped or broken tooth
  • Knocked out tooth as a result of an injury to the mouth
  • Extruded (partially dislodged tooth)
  • Pain as a result of a lost filling
  • Pain as a result of a lost crown
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Bleeding after an extraction

An aching tooth is the most common dental emergency that can lead to an abscess (infection). Although most patients take over-the-counter medicine and wait for the opening of their dentist’s office, some fail to realize the seriousness of the situation and develop an infection. Oral infections can be extremely painful and require complex emergency dental procedures that may lead to additional expenses. If you are experiencing a toothache that is not getting better, it is important that you schedule an immediate dental emergency appointment.

A tooth that has been chipped or broken is usually not considered a dental emergency, unless it involves extreme pain, soft-tissue swelling and bleeding. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is essential that you contact your Kensington emergency dentist right away. In the meantime, you should rinse your mouth with cold water to stop the bleeding and take Tylenol for pain. An injury to the mouth can also lead to a knocked out tooth or a partially dislodged tooth, which requires immediate medical attention.

Likewise, if you are experiencing a toothache as a result of a lost filling or crown, it is vital that you contact our office. My staff and I can help replace your filling right away or re-cement your lost crown in order to protect your oral health and avoid an infection.

Our emergency dental practice in North Park serves patients 24 hours a day. We offer complex dental emergency treatments, including root canal therapy as well as cosmetic dentistry procedures for patients who require dental restorations as part of their dental emergency treatment.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry and How Can it Benefit You?

Cosmetic dentistry differs from general dentistry in that is focuses on the appearance of an individual’s smile rather than oral health. However, Dr. Byers who is a renowned San Diego cosmetic dentist as well as a highly sought after general and emergency San Diego dentist, believes that combining these two disciplines of cosmetic and general dentistry allows his patients to achieve both maximum oral health and an aesthetically pleasing smile. In fact, most dentists specialize in either one discipline or the other. Dr. Byers is among the select few dentists in San Diego who is able to combine multiple disciplines to provide his San Diego cosmetic dentistry patients with comprehensive oral health and beauty services.

Cosmetic dentistry is generally characterized by highly sophisticated procedures that focus on enhancing the appearance of the teeth. These procedures often include: teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, dental bonding, crowns, full mouth reconstructions and a range of other similar treatments. General dentistry on the other hand, focuses on treatment techniques that improve oral health and prevent gum disease as well as tooth decay, which can lead to toothaches, infections and subsequently require dental emergency procedures such as root canal therapy. Dr. Steven Byers, who has been serving dental patients for more than 25 years, also offers 24-hour emergency dentistry services and immediate appointments to treat his San Diego, North Park and Kensington dental emergency patients.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Benefit You?

In order to perform cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr. Byers will first need to address any oral health issues you may have. This will help you achieve maximum oral health prior to your cosmetic dentistry treatment. Once you have undergone one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, you will see immediate and dramatic results in the appearance of your smile. This often motivates patients to smile more often as they begin to feel more beautiful. In fact, a smile can greatly improve the appearance of a patients’ face as a whole and give them a boost in self-confidence that they have not had before. This can automatically improve their social skills and subsequently affect their quality of life. Therefore, one can easily claim that the most advantageous benefit of cosmetic dentistry is on a deeper and emotional level as it greatly affects how an individual looks and feels. There is no denying that everyone wants to look beautiful and a gorgeous, sparkling smile can get you there. Remember that your smile in generally the first facial feature others notice about you. In addition, cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental implants, can also be used as an effective restoration technique for patients who want to replace missing teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Trends

The success of cosmetic dentistry as its own field has led to numerous technological advances and developments that make the process of a smile makeover highly sophisticated and long-lasting. Today, cosmetic dentists strive to use the least invasive cosmetic dentistry techniques and laser-guided equipment to achieve quality results that are completely natural and can last for many years to come. This also helps patients achieve an aesthetically pleasing smile in a short amount of time and minimum recovery.
