Our Laguna Hills emergency dentistry service is always there for our valued clients. If you knock a tooth out or chip one playing sports we can help. It’s important to us to provide total dental care for each and every one of our valued clients.

That’s why, along with our emergency dental services, we’d like to offer a dental care checklist. Being proactive is part of our commitment to you.


Have a Good Oral Hygiene Routine

Laguna Hills Emergency DentistryAny dentist or periodontist will tell you that having a good oral health care routine lessens your chances of gum disease. Flossing is important. As well, you should brush your teeth at least two times a day and concentrate on those hard-to-reach areas.


Emergency dentistry tip:

If you lose a filling, you can stick a piece of sugarless gum in the spot until you can come and see us at 7 Day Dental. Remember, your gums should be pink and they shouldn’t bleed when you floss and brush. If they do, you should come and see us straightaway.


Control diabetes

When people think of this common disease, they don’t always associate it with a threat to your oral hygiene. However, fluctuating blood sugar levels can promote infections that lead to gum disease. If you are a diabetic, it’s important to your oral health to make sure you monitor these levels.


Laguna Hills Emergency dentistry tip: 

If you knock a tooth out, you should pick it up by the crown and rinse it off. If it’s possible, put it back in place and come and see us. If you can’t, put it back in right away, transport the tooth in a glass of milk to one of our offices as soon as possible.


Look for symptoms

There are certain conditions that can make you more susceptible to gum disease. For example, if someone in your family have suffered from gingivitis, you have a higher risk. Pregnant women also are in a higher risk category. It’s a good idea to be on the lookout when you’re in one of these categories for gum disease.

Emergency dentistry tip:

If you suffer an injury to your teeth or gums, rinsing your mouth out with salt water will help. Holding a piece of gauze in place for 20 minutes should stop the bleeding.


At 7 Day Dental, we make it our mission to supply you with the very best dental services possible. Our Laguna Hills emergency dentistry services are always here to help you.
