Dental problems that demand immediate attention
Below are dental conditions that require emergency care and tips on how to diminish the pain until you get to see the dentist:
Knocked out or loose tooth following an injury
Save any pieces of the broken tooth and rinse your mouth with warm water. Apply a cold compress to the area until you can see your dentist.
If you have a pimple-like swelling on your gums, rinse with salt water and use a cold compress to eliminate pain. A dental abscess can lead to a serious infection so make sure to call your dentist right away.
Toothache that won’t go away with painkillers
Serious tooth pain is often caused by an infection. Rinse with salt water, apply a cold compress against your mouth or use an oral numbing gel to eliminate the pain.

Oh boy where do I begin… hahaha I LOVE FIRST DENTAL!!
I know the thought of getting your wisdom teeth/tooth may be terrifying and watching Youtube videos of the surgery does not help… LOL but to be honest, watching the videos did not bother me much and the process was a piece of cake. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Harold Choi perform my extractions. HE IS THE GREATEST. Did I mention he was theeeeee best hahaa ;)!!!
I came in for the typical consultation and I was informed of the procedure and the medical staff(s) answered any questions I had and I also received information on post-operative care.
I chose to do the local anesthesia, cause going under general anesthesia scares me (personally, I will NEVER choose to do it this way) and the process took no longer than 15-20 mins and I was up and going after the surgery :)) I had two impacted, full bony wisdom teeth extracted and I am glad they are gone.
Also, the medical staff here are personable, down to earth, and most of all caring 🙂 Makes me feel at home lol (all in seriousness)

If you’re reading this, you’re probably looking for a new dentist. This is the place!
As soon as you walk in you ‘re greeted warmly by the staff. They’re very good at remembering faces because they knew who I was on my second visit. I have a major fear of going to the dentist, enough to put it off until I NEED to go. Had to get 3 impacted wisdom teeth pulled. Dr. Kim and Dr. Choi were probably the first dentists to make me feel comfortable and at ease. They were both very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan. I felt that they were really honest and only recommended what was best for me. I’ve been to other dentists who would suggest all these unnecessary work or would recommend the more expensive solutions just for billing purposes. During the procedure they constantly made sure I was okay, which I really appreciated. Did I mention I’m a wuss when it comes to shots? Well Dr. Kim has some magically powers because I couldn’t feel a thing when he injected the numbing shots.
