With ongoing concerns and uncertainty about the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, we want to reassure you that the health, safety, and wellbeing of our patients and your family are very important to us. We are closely monitoring developments of the outbreak and are taking precautionary measures — consistent with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines – to help support the ongoing health and safety of our employees and patients.
If you’ve suffered a dental injury or orofacial trauma as the result of an accident (whether it be due to sports, an automobile wreck, etc.) you need to see an oral health provider immediately. Our Tustin, CA oral surgeon is available to provide emergency dental services and same-day pain relief when at all possible, providing you with the reassurance and attention that’s needed in such an emergency. We are on staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and St. Jude Medical Center, and encourage you to seek emergency room care in cases of severe damage or pain.
Locate the tooth and store it in a sealed container, submerged in milk or contact solution. Take care not to handle the tooth by the roots. Seek care from our oral surgeon within the next hour.
Apply a clean compress to the wound or surgical site to stop the bleeding. Tea bags compresses are also effective. Call our office for further emergency dental service instructions. If it’s after hours and bleeding cannot be controlled, call our emergency number or head to the nearest emergency room.
Take an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen and alternate a cold and warm compress every 20 minutes. Make an appointment at our office as soon as possible.
For severe emergency dental service situations, like a broken jaw, you should head to the emergency room as soon as possible. De. Thiede is on staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and St. Jude Medical Center.
If you’re unable to go to work, school, are in severe pain, or unable to eat, you need to see an emergency dentist. Our Tustin, CA specialist provides emergency dental services to new and existing patients alike, making every effort to see you on the same day when possible. Complex injuries such as facial trauma and broken bones of the face require an extra level of attention from an oral surgery specialist. The long-term function and aesthetics of your smile depend on it!
Get the pain relief and peace of mind that you deserve.
