We never want our patients to experience pain. That is why we recommend routine exams and professional dental cleanings. When we have the opportunity to see you on a regular basis, it allows us to stop most dental conditions before they cause discomfort.
If you experience gum or tooth pain, you should call us right away. We will ask you a series of questions to determine how to best handle your dental emergency. We will ask questions about when the pain started, what you were doing if it is worse when exposed to hot or cold, if you lost a dental restoration, as well as a series of questions to help us prepare for your appointment.
Scheduling Your Appointment
Chances are if you are in pain during business hours, we will try to see you on the same day. If we talk to you after hours, we will get you in as soon as we can and suggest ways to help you manage your pain until we can arrange for an emergency exam.
Tooth pain is an indication that something is wrong. Do not postpone your call because tooth pain rarely resolves on its own. We will diagnose and treat the cause of your pain, restoring your dental health. Call Irvine Dental and be seen by Dr. Jeffrey C. Robertson, DDS for your tooth pain.
