How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in TorranceOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Torrance is a city with more than a 100 dentists2, making it easy to find an emergency dentist near you that will take you in for an appointment as soon as you call, right? Not so much. The majority of dentists work only during business hours. According to the American Dental Association, only 4% of dentists in the US work on Sundays3. A larger percentage works on Saturdays, but since weekdays are busy for both patients and dentists, there is not much time left for dental appointments on weekends. Emergency dentists are difficult to find, but we have are working with a great number of dental offices, and can locate one for you today.
You might have been searching for a dentist near you in Torrance using Yelp, Google Maps, or some other tool, and you have probably found many. The difference with us is that if you give us a call, we will locate an emergency dentist near you, and schedule an appointment on the same day, without you having to call the dentist yourself. We are proud to say that we can take your call and get you an appointment in under three minutes, regardless of what type of insurance you have, or what kind of emergency procedure you need. We can also cater to any special requests, such as finding a dentist that uses sedation if you suffer from anxiety.
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.
On the day of your emergency dentist appointment, try to avoid sugary beverages, or caffeine. While they give you enough energy to keep you awake, they can also make you jumpy, and even more anxious. Nobody is calm before their emergency dentist appointment, so we will presume you aren’t either. If the level of anxiousness is too high, you should tell your dentist. Dental offices nowadays have perfected techniques of soothing patients that suffer from anxiety, or fear of dentists. There are several ways both dentists and patients themselves can help lower their anxiety before and during the appointment, and we will name some of them.
We have already covered not drinking high energy drinks. Another way to regulate how you feel is if you breathe properly. If the dentist knows about your anxiety, he will help you with breathing. Many people get scared, and during the treatment hold their breath. That is wrong because by not breathing, you are denying your body as much oxygen as it needs, and you’re putting yourself in a state of panic. Breathing normally helps with the pain or discomfort. If the sound of the drill scares you, you can bring headphones and listen to music, while the dentist is repairing your teeth. Stress relief balls help as well, since you focus on squeezing them.
Get a walk-in emergency dentist appointment todayCall us to schedule you an appointment with an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Getting a walk-in can be equally difficult as finding an emergency dentist in Torrance. Walk-in appointments are considered hard to get because dentists work on a busy schedule, and taking you in would disrupt the way or the order in which they are working. While dentists are with some patients doing a checkup or a cleaning, another patient may be waiting in another room for anesthesia to take effect. Arranging two patients at the same time like this, so neither of them feels neglected, takes time and careful planning. That planning would go to waste if the dental office would rearrange your schedule, or call other patients to postpone their appointments because of you.
Many dental offices work by appointment only. We also advise you to call a dentist’s office to ask if you can come instead of showing up at the door. If you need an emergency dentist and you’re thinking about doing a walk-in, rather call us. In less than three minutes, we can schedule a same day appointment at an emergency dentist near you. Even if you need one during off-hours, we will find one for you, or if not possible, we will access the dentists’ appointment book, and schedule you to come in first thing in the morning. Patients needing a crown on the same day because it is chipped or it fell out can also relax because we have dentists in Torrance that make same-day crowns.
Top emergency dentist procedures in TorranceLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
While chipped teeth or crowns are the most searched for dental emergencies, they are not considered to be actual emergencies. Fractured tooth, knocked out tooth, facial swelling, bleeding gums, or lost crown are all more serious than a chipped tooth, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. If you chip your tooth or crown, your tooth might have additional damage that you cannot see or feel. If your tooth is chipped, don’t eat on that side of your mouth because you might chip it more, or even fracture it, making it impossible for the dentist to save the tooth. If the pulp is not damaged, you won’t need a root canal, just a filling or another crown to cover the affected tooth.
