If you were having a lot of pain, first I would be asking you, who, what, where, and why? Where's the pain? How long have you had this pain? What is it that you think, why you have this pain? I would try to get all the details I can from you about this. Because that's where it starts. I need to know from your perspective. And then afterwards, once I have that, then I will look in your mouth and see what the issues are at hand, and then from there, hopefully come up with a short list, but sometimes not, of what are the possibilities here, and then work up a solution for your ... To meet your needs.
Common Emergency Dental Situations
- Cracked Tooth – A cracked tooth puts your tooth at risk. It exposes the sensitive pulp inside of your tooth and can lead to heat or cold sensitivity, infection, or even tooth loss. Sierra Dental Care has been saving people from these problems for decades. With our help, your tooth will be safe and your smile will remain healthy.
- Broken Tooth – The pain from a broken tooth can be agonizing. You need to have it addressed quickly. Our dentists can solve your problem with a dental crown or another appropriate restorative dental solution.
- Infected Tooth or Toothache – When there’s damage to your tooth enamel, whether from injury or tooth decay, you run the risk of infecting the nerve inside your tooth. If you have a toothache, swelling, or other pain near a tooth, you need to see us now. Emergency dental care is only a call away.
If somebody calls me and has pain or discomfort, there is a source. An X-ray, perhaps a periapical bitewing would be needed and a quick dental exam. For sure, we'll find out what the cause of the pain is.
