Emergency Dental Care in Costa Mesa

There are many times when a patient is experiencing pain, discomfort, swelling, redness, etc.  It could be as simple as sensitivity resulting from teeth grinding to decay that has reached the root canal to a cancerous lesion on the gums.  Without seeing a dentist, you simply don’t know if you need to be seen for an emergency dental appointment!
