Dental Emergencies

Are you experiencing a dental emergency and not sure what to do? We can help. Contact our office immediately for help in a dental emergency situation.

What constitutes a dental emergency?

We understand that the definition of a dental emergency can be a bit hazy. That’s why we are here to help clear it up for you. If you are experiencing any of the following situations, please contact our office to schedule an emergency appointment immediately.

  • A loose adult tooth
  • An adult tooth that has fallen out or has been knocked out
  • An adult tooth that has been critically damaged (cracked or broken) in any way
  • A tissue injury, such as to your cheeks, gums, or tongue
  • Severe oral pain of any sort

We can help alleviate discomfort and eliminate pain, but only if you contact our office immediately. The sooner you reach us, the better chance we have of being able to save your tooth and reverse any damage. For information on what to do when an emergency occurs, read on.

What should I do in case of an emergency?

If you are experiencing any of the situations above, there are a few things you can do to aid the situation and seek help. Please follow these steps to protect your mouth from further harm and get the care you need right away.

  1. Secure any loose tooth or teeth that has fallen out. If possible, gently rinse it and return the lost tooth to its socket. If it is not possible to place it back in the socket, protect it from harm until you get to our office. Do not touch the tooth root!
  2. Stem any blood flow with a cold compress. If there is excessive bleeding that won’t stop, please get to an emergency room right away.
  3. Call our office immediately. We can be reached at 818-783-1515. If you catch us after hours, please call the cell phone number on the answering machine to reach Dr. Moin. We will work you in to see us the very same day, or the next day at the latest. We want you to get the care you need as soon as possible, and we will go out of our way to make that happen.
  4. Get to your emergency appointment as planned. Let us help repair the damage and alleviate your pain.

Remember, by following these steps, you may increase the likelihood of us being able to save your tooth. Also remember that in a life or death situation, you should visit the nearest emergency room immediately.

Dr. Moin and his team are absolutely wonderful. Their office is modern and high tech. Staff is very knowledgable, helpful and friendly. i have had quite a lot of work done at Dr. Moin’s office. I recommend Dr. Moin and hope you have a similar experience.

Dr. Moin is a wonderful dentist. He is professional and does excellent work. Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful – so much so that my 6yr old asked if we could go back. We went to him on a family recommendation and I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

-Suzie B, Acton, CA

My family has been going to Dr. Moin since 1996 and since then, he has been and still continues to be a great dentist. He does an excellent job, whether it’d be extracting a wisdom tooth or simply filling a cavity. You should definitely have Dr. Moin as a dentist; you’re in good hands.

Finally, I found a dentist that is compassionate about what he does. His entire staff is courteous, professional, and caring. I’ve been to many dentist through recommendation of friends and although it wasn’t a bad experience, I haven’t experienced service to this degree. I am a professional in the health care field, and because I work nights and long hours, my bad habits include coffee and drinking soda to stay awake. As a results, I destroyed the enamel on my teeth and soon was embarrassed to smile. I came to Dr. Moin through a referral and was immediately greeted by a friendly, warm staff. I sat in the room with Dr. Moin and explained my concerns and needs. He took the time to listen then explain the procedure and informed me of his 20 plus years experience in cosmetic dentistry. I had an inner warmth and security that somehow validated was he was saying, so proceeded with getting Veneers. Let me tell you, choosing Dr. Moin was the best decision I made. The quality is superb and the price could not be beaten. Colleagues who also have Veneers were shocked about the difference in what they paid compared to what I did and some can’t even tell that I have Veneers. I must say, I highly recommend him to everyone!!! Thank you Dr. Moin and Staff.

Going to a dentist is not always the first thing in your to do list. However, Dr. Iraj Moin makes going to a dentist a pleasant experience. There is never a wait. The office staff are always friendly and they remember you. Dr. Iraj himself has a great personality and very knowledge on his field and the procedures he performs. My overall experience is excellent and my entire family has him as a dentist and we are pleased with him.

Hiding my smile became a habit. Now I receive compliments about my smile and teeth. I am very happy with Dr. Moin and his kind and caring staff.
