Dental emergencies can happen to anyone. Despite your best efforts, you may encounter a dental emergency because of unexpected falls, sports injuries, and other issues. When a dental emergency occurs, you should contact your dentist immediately. Whether you have a minor issue, such as a chipped surface or signs of major dental emergencies, Dr. Rajpal and her team are here to help. Dr. Rajpal offers numerous advanced dental procedures to address your dental concerns and help you maintain optimal oral health.
What are Dental Emergencies?
Determining exactly what constitutes dental emergencies can be difficult. Issues that seem fairly mild, such as a toothache or increased sensitivity, may indicate severe dental infections, cavities, or gum disease. And issues that seem more severe, such as bleeding, can be fairly superficial. As such, you should be proactive and seek immediate dental care regardless of the severity of your symptoms and condition. If anything feels out of the ordinary in your mouth, please contact your emergency dentist in Beverly Hills.
The importance of proactive dental care shouldn’t be understated. Most dental problems start as mild issues that gradually escalate and affect your entire mouth. Even issues like small cavities can eventually spread deeper and affect your entire tooth, necessitating a root canal or tooth extraction. Instead of waiting for your dental issues to become emergencies, you should contact your dentist when you first notice the signs and symptoms of dental problems, such as increased sensitivity, gum redness, tenderness, and toothaches.

Comprehensive Emergency Dentistry Solutions
When you visit Dr. Rajpal, you can expect a thorough consultation and dental evaluation. Dr. Rajpal will examine your teeth and gums, discuss your symptoms, and use cutting-edge diagnostic tools to visualize the root cause of your problems. After assessing the extent and nature of your dental problems, the dentist will curate a personalized treatment plan for your dental emergencies. Depending on your unique condition, your treatment plan may include dental repairs, bonding, or dental cleaning.
If you have broken, damaged, cracked, or missing teeth, the dentist will perform same-day dental repairs. If you have mildly cracked or fractured teeth, the dentist may perform dental onlays/ inlays, dental crowns, or dental bridges. Onlays/ inlays replace the damaged components of the teeth, crowns replace the entire external structure of the teeth, and dental bridges replace missing teeth. We use a premier local lab to customize and design the crowns and bridges in one sitting.
Sometimes, chipped or cracked teeth don’t pose any medical problems or concerns. The chip or crack on the tooth may look unattractive, but it’s not necessarily dangerous. If the dental crack or fracture isn’t severe, the dentist may perform a dental bonding with composite resin. During dental bonding, the dentist applies the composite resin material to the crack to seal it closed, restoring the tooth’s smooth appearance. Dental bonding also reinforces the tooth’s structure.
If you have the signs and symptoms of gum inflammation, gum disease, or dental infections, there’s a strong chance that your oral hygiene isn’t optimal. If you don’t maintain optimal oral hygiene, plaque and bacteria accumulate on your teeth, eventually leading to cavities, gum inflammation, infections, and other problems. Our dentist curates a personalized treatment plan to restore your dental health, treat gum disease, and prevent future dental infections. Optimal oral hygiene allows you to maintain flawless dental health for a lifetime.
