When scheduling an emergency appointment, we ask that you be as descriptive as possible. Are you in pain? Where is the pain located? Sensitive to cold and/or hot temperatures? How long has this been bothering you?
All this information will help determine the culprit and will enable our treating team to be prepared to help you back to health in the most efficient way.
Once you arrive to The QPD for your emergency appointment, you will have the necessary radiographs of the affected area and a limited exam with Dr. Salehezadeh to determine the cause of your discomfort. Sometimes, we will be able to treat you on the spot and get you out of your pain. And sometimes, once the pain has been identified, your treating dentist may need to refer you to a dental specialist for further treatment.
