Maybe you’ve done everything right. You brush twice a day, limit sweets and are the king (or queen) of flossing. Or maybe you’ve skipped a few appointments, and are a little embarrassed to admit that you love to crunch on the ice in a soda. Either way, you are not protected from an unexpected dental emergency. And if you find yourself in a distressing dental situation, it’s good to know that there is a trusted Corona, CA dentist with 24-hour emergency phone number available.

How Do I Know If It’s An Emergency?

Sometimes you can be very sure. Was a tooth completely knocked out of its socket? Did something break, or come off? Sudden and intense pain, extreme discomfort, and overwhelming anxiety are all signs you should pick up the phone and call.

Isn’t That Kind of A Bother?

Dentists are in the business of caring for teeth. The best dentists view it as a calling, and not just a way to earn a living. They value their patients, and want them to have the care they need, and peace of mind. It’s true that if you have been having discomfort over a period of days or weeks, it is probably most convenient (for everyone) if you call for an appointment during business hours. But don’t get the idea that you are bothering someone, if you call for 24 hour emergency advice or care.

Will It Cost Extra?

It’s imposible to know the costs and reimbursements of emergency care beforehand. However, most dental emergencies are restorative in nature (meaning a tooth, mouth or jaw has sustained damage and must be repaired), and this means it may be at least partially covered by insurance. The experienced office staff can help you navigate filing an insurance claim, and any financial questions, during regular business hours.
