There are very few things that bring up dread in people more than an achy tooth. Oftentimes dentists get such a bad rap that people would rather deal with aches and pains instead of stopping in and getting their tooth taken care of. When your mouth is throbbing though, finding the right dentist to quickly and gently take care of the problem becomes immediately important.
At Smile HQ (link: http://smilehq.com/), Dr. Robert Eng Chin, provides the primary care of all his patients, so quality is enforced during every appointment. He’s able to get to know each patient – including their history, needs and trouble spots – so that each visit to the chair is personalized. Since patients see the same dentist and group of staff at every visit, they begin to feel comfortable and are more likely to have healthy teeth free of tooth decay and gum disease (since they stop avoiding cleaning and check-up appointments).
Additionally, Smile HQ has been awarded the title of San Diego’s Top Dentists every year since 2007, and recently won the CBS 8 TV News Mojo Award for being the Top Dentist in San Diego. What Dr. Chin and his team consider more important than awards though, is the number of referrals they get from their current patients. The fact that so many of them enthusiastically recommend the practice to their friends and family, means Smile HQ is doing something right – just check out their patient testimonials (link: http://smilehq.com/video-testimonials/)!
It’s the friendly and personalized service that allows patients to trust Dr. Chin when it comes to painful situations like a cavity. Unlike some dental practices that may hoodwink patients into more work than they need, Smile HQ is up front about the procedures that need to be done. So when you’re in a situation and don’t know whether you tooth is aching just because or if it’s aching because of a cavity, they’ll be able to help you out and get you back to pain-free smiling.
If you’re currently in pain and think it’s because of a cavity, look out for these signs and symptoms:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Sharp pain when eating or drinking something hot, cold or very sweet
- Visible holes in your tooth
- Stains on the surface of your tooth
- Pain when eating or biting
Since a cavity can form without you feeling or noticing any of the above, it’s always important to make regular appointments. Dr. Chin will be able to monitor any tooth that looks troublesome and stop a cavity before it gets too bad. If you’re already experiencing pain though, make an appointment as soon as possible.
Besides teeth cleaning and other comprehensive dental care (like fillings, crowns, root canals, veneers, whitening, and a lot more), Smile HQ also specializes in dental implants, WaterlaseMD, lumineers and invisible braces.
Whether you’re in pain and can’t take it anymore, or are on the hunt for a general dentist you can trust, the awards and recommendations speak for themselves – Smile HQ is the leading dentist in San Diego. Contact Dr. Chin and his staff today by calling (858) 292-7655, sending them a message online, or visiting the office at 6545 Balboa Ave (Suite A, San Diego, 92111).
