How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in Costa MesaOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
There are only a few dentist offices that actually work 24 hours a day. If you’re looking for an emergency dentist, then you will be looking for one that works nights or weekends. We call these off-hours because most dentists work regular hours from Monday to Friday. According to the American Dental Association, 45% of dentists work on Saturdays, and only 4% work on Sundays2. That is an astoundingly low number, considering most people don’t work on weekends, and that is the only time they can schedule an appointment. If you are in need of an emergency dentist, and you’re not sure where to get one, give us a call.
We work very differently than other search companies. While sites such as Yelp might give you the location and phone number of a dentist office, we will schedule an appointment for you. If you call us, our dental referral specialists, who are based in the US, will access the dentist’s schedule, and book an appointment for you. The part of service that makes us better than any other website, or even faster than you, is that we are quicker. We don’t need much time, less than three minutes to schedule an appointment at an emergency dentist for you. Whatever your form of payment, or type of insurance, it won’t affect our search for a dentist near you in Costa Mesa.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
Transferring your dental records from your old dentist to your new one is a must before your emergency dentist appointment. If you’re asking yourself if it’s free, then the answer is both yes and no. Your dental records are the property of the dentist that made them. However, by law, you are allowed to get a copy of them, which you can take to your new dentist. If you’re going to have an appointment with your current dentist, you should have written down any changes to your dental health since your last visit. Tracking down all the changes, such as any sensitivity to hot or cold, or any sudden pain or bleeding can help your dentist with the diagnosis.
Before you go to the dentist, you should ask yourself if you suffer from anxiety or fear from the dentist. According to the research done by McKinsey & Company, 35% of Californians haven’t been to the dentist in 12 month or longer3. American Dental Association confirms that information and says that 13% of those people didn’t go to the dentist because they are afraid of them4. If you feel anxious at all, make sure to tell the dentist about it. There are many techniques and tools dentists nowadays use to make you feel more relaxed. Being anxious doesn’t help you during the procedure, but also doesn’t help the dentist do his job.

There are less and less dentists that accept walk-ins these days. The majority of dentists don’t accept them due to a number of factors. One is the uncertainty of what kind of dental procedure you might need. Not knowing what kind of dental emergency you’re having may take too much time if the dentist doesn’t have your dental records or if there are any complications. If it’s just a checkup, the dentist may have some time to do it, but will still probably turn you away. The reason is that dentists work on a schedule, and your walk-in might disrupt it. It is always advised to call a dentist office to ask for an appointment, instead of trying to get a walk-in. Another factor why dentists don’t accept walk-ins is because they’re simply too busy. Accepting you if you’re really having a dental emergency will mean other patients will have to wait, and the dentist will do everything in a hurry. Another thing that can happen is that the dentist may have to cancel someone else’s appointment because of you. On the other hand, dentists want to help people suffering from a dental emergency, and don’t feel good turning them away. In any case, they risk getting a bad reputation or negative reviews.
By calling us, you avoid all of this trouble. Our lines are open 24 hours a day, with referral agents waiting for your call. Giving us a call is actually faster that searching for an emergency dentist near you by yourself. In a phone call that will last less than three minutes, you will have a same day appointment scheduled at an emergency dental clinic.
Top emergency dentist procedures in Costa MesaLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
One of dental emergencies you might be having is a tooth infection. A small infection might just be causing a toothache, but a more severe one is called an abscess. If you bite down on your tooth and experience pain, it’s possible you have an abscess. Decay that is close to the nerve of the tooth can develop into an abscess, and needs to be dealt with immediately. An abscess can easily turn in to a dental emergency if you don’t treat is as soon as possible. A serious infection can spread through the root of your tooth, causing an even bigger problem to your gums or even the bone. If you’re experiencing any kind of pain when biting down, or if you have any swelling in the mouth, dial our number and schedule an appointment at an emergency dentist near you.
