Accidents and injuries are an unpleasant, but fairly normal part of life. Any part of our fragile bodies can be affected, including our mouths. If you are unfortunate enough to experience trauma to your mouth, there is a good chance that you will need the services of an emergency dentist. Whilst doctors can provide some immediate care and support, the care of an experienced dentistry professional is recommended to ensure that you get the most appropriate treatment and the best outcome for your case. However, not all dental emergencies are the result of an accident. Sometimes issues arise that simply cannot be ignored.
Whatever your type of dental emergency, our dedicated, experienced and reassuring emergency dental team can help. We offer a comprehensive range of emergency dentistry services at our dental center in Dublin, CA.
Deciding whether or not you are in an emergency scenario isn’t always straightforward. After all, you don’t necessarily want to take up an emergency appointment if you don’t need to, but at the same time, it is important to be seen and treated promptly in many scenarios. We see a wide variety of dental emergencies at our practice, and they come in many different shapes and forms. How patients cope with symptoms like pain can also have a bearing on how they react to their dental emergency. Nevertheless, the following should be considered a potential critical scenario and prompt you to seek an appointment with our emergency team:
A tooth that has been knocked out
Root canal infections
Lost crowns or fillings
Broken dental restorations including crowns, bridges, and dentures
Teeth that are cracked or broken
Severe bleeding of the mouth, gums, tongue or lips
Extreme dental pain that isn’t being relieved using over the counter pain relief
Our team will be able to triage your dental emergency over the phone and advise you whether you need to be seen immediately, or if you should make a regular dental appointment.
Emergency dental appointments are carried out with the purpose of providing immediate relief from your symptoms. We will carry out any emergency treatment to achieve this goal. If you need a restoration, a temporary version will be fitted so that you can use your teeth, and you will return at a regular appointment time to arrange for a permanent version to be created and fitted. If you require antibiotics or prescription pain relief, these can be provided. If you have a knocked-out tooth, we will do our best to replace it. The treatment that you will have will depend on the type of dental emergency that you have experienced and how severe the problem is. Every step of the appointment will be explained to you by our team to ensure that you are aware of exactly what is needed to alleviate your symptoms and get your dental issue under control.
If you are looking for a reliable, friendly and experience emergency dentist in Dublin, CA look no further than Sharma Dental Center. To find out more about any of our services, or to arrange an appointment, please call our dedicated team today on (925) 592-3800.
