What is a dental emergency? How soon should you take action on your dental emergency? What do you do if you do if you have a dental emergency?

In short, a dental emergency can be anything ranging from sensitivity, to pain, to even getting a tooth knocked out. The severity of your dental emergency should be used to determine how soon you need to be seen by a dentist. In cases such as sensitivity patients can general carry on with their daily activities without disruption therefore, they can wait a few days before paying a visit to the dentist. In more serious cases, such as getting a tooth knocked out or even in situations of excruciating pain, a visit to the dentist may be necessary immediately.

It is important for patients to realize that just because a circumstance is not life threatening, it can still be considered an emergency. Many of our emergency dental patients that come to Agoura Dental Group face more serious procedures due to not scheduling emergency dental appointments in a timely manner.

Handling a dental emergency can be stressful and confusing. Do you go to the hospital? Are there 24/7 dental emergency clinics available? Should you just go to your general dentist? Well you are in luck because Agoura Dental Group is a dental office in Agoura Hills which gladly accepts emergency dental patients from surrounding areas such as Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Hidden Hills, Westlake, Thousand Oaks, and Malibu. Generally speaking a trip to the emergency room is not necessary and our well-equipped and experienced dentist, Dr. Choroomi will be able to handle your dental emergency without difficulty.

At Agoura Dental Group we make sure all of our patients from Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Hidden Hills, Westlake, Thousand Oaks, and Malibu know that we always make sure to attend to their emergencies as soon as possible.

No one wants to find themselves having a dental emergency, but is every ache a cause for alarm? What actually counts as a dental emergency, and what can we try to ignore?

Knock out a tooth? You have a couple of options; keep the tooth between your cheek and gums to keep it moist, or submerge it in milk. Either way, this is an emergency and you need to get to a dentist ASAP.

Have an extruded, or partially dislodged, tooth? You need to seek medical attention right away. If a tooth is wobbly or loose, it could be a sign of periodontal disease. Get it checked out before symptoms get worse.

Cracking a tooth requires immediate medical attention. If you chip part of your tooth, it may be uncomfortable, but it does not warrant a dental emergency. However, cracking a tooth does. Your best bet for this is applying a cold compress for swelling and getting to a dental office fast!

Many places provide 24 hour emergency room-like dental emergency professionals, but wouldn’t it be better to go to your skilled and local regular dentist? Well, you can!

There’s many myths about the dentist’s office, but a lot of them seem to center around cleaning. Not everyone actually likes getting their teeth cleaned, so it makes sense that so many would make the claim that you only need to go once a year, maybe twice a year, and some say it’s okay to skip the ordeal altogether. These myths are simply not true. Even patients with excellent oral hygiene need to go for a cleaning twice a year, but there is a large percentage of people who need to go more often than that.

A teeth cleaning can seem like a dreaded experience, but it’s actually very simple when you know what is going on. First, the dental hygienist will take a mirror and look for signs of cavities or anything out of the ordinary. Next, they use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth so they can proceed. Then comes the gritty toothpaste cleaning, which makes a horrible sound but is actually a great way to deep clean the surface of your teeth. Then the dental hygienist will floss, rinse, and apply fluoride treatment to your teeth. None of that is bad generally speaking. If you, like many others, experience discomfort during the flossing part, all you have to do is start flossing at home. It’s as simple as that!

Some people have something called periodontal disease, which has to do with the lining of your gums. This could mean you have gum inflammation, loss of ligaments, or even bone loss. Whatever the cause may be, your dentist will suggest you set up an appointment for a deep cleaning. During a deep clean, your dentist has to get deeper into your gums to fix the problem. This will involve anesthetic to numb your mouth, and the dentist will get the bacteria out of your gums. Once the procedure is over, you will most likely be asked to come back every 2-4 months to keep the bacteria away. Even if your gums healed after the initial cleaning, that does not mean the bacteria won’t come back. Your only safe bet is to keep coming back for cleanings to keep your oral hygiene in check.

Agoura Dental Group has proudly served our community for over 10 years. Our dentists treat patients from Westlake Village, Oak Park, Malibu, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and some from as far as Los Angeles. Want to learn more about routine and deep cleanings, or schedule an appointment with our dentist or dental hygienist now? Call us for your complimentary consultation!

Dentist Agoura Hills CA

At Agoura Dental Group we accept a wide range of dental insurances, like PPO plans, HMO plans, and Dentical. Don’t know if you’re covered? We can help.

PPO insurance plans will let you go to most dental care providers, while HMO plans are more picky. Any insurance plan will usually cover annual and semi-annual visits for a simple dental cleaning, but may require a co-pay for more costly procedures, such as braces, crowns, and dental implants. It’s helpful to have a plan that covers preventative dental care, such as cleanings, x-rays, and exams. Having routine preventative care can save you money in the long run, as it avoids problems such as tooth decay.

When an insurance plan offers a co-pay, it means that they will pay for a percentage of a procedure, and you will pay for the rest out of pocket. This can be a good thing, as some plans cover up to 90% of costs. We even offer zero-down payment options to help you with your out of pocket costs. Agoura Dental Group proudly serves our community and surrounding cities, such as Woodland Hills, Malibu, Agoura Hills, Westlake, Oak Park, and some from as far as Los Angeles. To know the specifics in regards to your plan and what we cover, feel free to call us at Agoura Dental Group to see what we can do for you!

Have a missing tooth? Unfortunately, the worst thing isn’t the unsightly gap, it’s the unseen health problems that go along with losing a tooth. When a tooth is lost, your alveolar bone starts shrinking away until it gets down to your basal bone, or jawbone. This will eventually result in the lower third of the face partially collapsing due to lack of support, which can ‘age’ a person. This can seem scary, but it’s easily fixable, either with a dental bridge or implant.
Dental bridges are one popular option to replace a missing tooth. They involve permanently attaching an artificial tooth to the adjacent teeth, which can involve drilling away slightly at the adjacent teeth in order to attach the artificial one. Prices for this procedure vary between dental offices, but dental bridges generally cost less than implants. Dental bridges last about 10 years, and are particularly successful if the adjacent teeth already have crowns.
Dental implants are another popular option to replace a missing tooth. They involve drilling into the gum and inserting a screw with an artificial tooth attached to it. Implants tend to be very successful because they do not affect surrounding teeth. Treatment time is longer for implants, but they last longer. With an implant, you can brush and floss normally, as the implant acts as an independent tooth.
Both options are highly beneficial to both appearance and oral health. Bridges stop other teeth from moving into the gap, which affects your bone structure detrimentally. Implants restore support and stop the shrinking of your alveolar bone and basal bone.
If you are missing a tooth and want the best dental care possible, look no further than Agoura Dental Group. Dr. Choroomi is an expert dentist in the field of dental implants and dental bridges, along with many other areas of dentistry. We serve customers from Westlake, Oak Park, Agoura Hills, Woodland Hills, Malibu, and some from as far as Los Angeles. You can be confident you are getting the best dental care around, so call now to book your complimentary implant consultation!
