When Do I Need to Go to the Emergency Room?

While we can handle all manner of dental emergencies right here in our Orange emergency dental office, there are some situations that need to be stabilized at an ER before we fix up your smile. Go to the nearest hospital if you suffer from any of the following injuries:

  • Excessive bleeding from the mouth, or bleeding that won’t stop after 10 minutes
  • A dislocated or broken jaw
  • Swelling in your mouth or jaw that’s making it difficult to swallow

I've been procrastinating on going to the dentist for a few years because I was nervous of what I might need. But after visiting with Dr. Michelsen, I found that I was worried for no reason at all. She and her staff are kind, patient, and gentle! I'm smiling because, not only are my teeth nice and healthy again, I also got my smile brightened. It looks better than I thought possible...and makes me feel happy about myself again.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Michelsen. As she has recently taken over this practice, we have only had a few visits with her but right off the bat, she made us feel right at ease and very comfortable with both her skill as a dentist and also her personal attention to her patients. She takes the time to get to know you, which we like. Her office staff is always very warm and inviting and never fail to greet you with a smile. I have already referred a friend and hoping we have the opportunity to refer others!

Very helpful and friendly staff. I love that they make your crown right there and you don't have to have a temporary tooth and wait for the permanent tooth.
