Emergencies are not uncommon, it happens, especially on the weekends. We have a 24 hour service that provides us to get in touch with a patient. The emergency service calls us and then let us know what the emergency is, and then we call the patient right back as soon as we can, and we address their concerns. We try to bring the patient in as soon as possible on the next business day, so we can address the emergency. They call, they make an appointment and usually we see them the same day. We will address those concerns as much as we can. There might be a little bit of a wait though, because we have to squeeze them into our schedule, but rest assured that we will take care of them as much as we can to the best of our abilities here
Common Dental Emergencies
Your first step in any dental emergencies is to call Sierra Dental Care. This is important, as we can help you determine the next steps to take before your emergency appointment. Here are a few common dental emergencies situations we see.
- Cracked Tooth – A cracked tooth cannot be ignored. Call our office now and we’ll get you in to see the dentist as soon as possible. We will need to seal your tooth with a veneer or dental crown to keep bacteria from getting in and damaging the nerve inside.
- Broken Tooth – Depending on the severity of the break, you may need an emergency tooth extraction or a dental crown. Call us immediately at 209-846-3961 to get the process started. Our skilled team will help you find the proper solution.
- Dislodged Tooth – Again, the first thing you need to do is call us. After that, you should take some steps to make it easier for your dentist to save your tooth. First, find the tooth. Then, clean the tooth and submerge it in a glass of milk to keep it safe until you get to the office.
- Infected Tooth – Infections of any kind are dangerous, but oral infections put your whole smile at risk. Call our office to find out your next steps and get an appointment.
