Know What to Do During a Dental Crisis

Your first step in any dental emergency is to call us as soon as possible. This is important, as we can help you determine the next steps to take before your emergency appointment. We have an after-hours service as well so we can discuss your situation before you arrive. Here are a few common emergency dental situations we see.

Conversations with Sierra Dental Care employees about Covid-19 safety

  • Cracked tooth. Don’t ignore a cracked tooth. 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, most likely 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 to get the process started. Our skilled team will help you find the proper treatment solution.
  • Knocked-out 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. Retrieve your tooth, then clean it off (be careful not to touch the roots) and place it in a container of milk to preserve it 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 to get an appointment.

For dental emergencies, call us immediately at (209) 575-2400. We have experienced emergency dentists and convenient hours to serve you and relieve your oral pain. If you don’t have an emergency but still want to schedule a same-day appointment for routine care, just call or contact us online.
