What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?
The following events are considered dental emergencies:
- Dental Trauma (cracked, broken, or knocked out teeth)
- Severe Toothaches and Swelling
- Lost Fillings or Crowns
Minor issues, such as chipped teeth, can more than likely be resolved during a regular visit. There are numerous cosmetic solutions in these instances, such as composite bonding which will help your tooth regain its original appearance. But for other issues, such as broken or knocked out teeth, it’s important to address damage as soon as possible so that we can prevent infection.
How We Serve Emergencies
For emergencies that occur during business hours, Drs. Ho and Nguyen will see you as soon as possible. During your appointment, we will perform x-rays in order to outline an effective treatment plan. If you require pain medication or antibiotics, we will coordinate with your trusted medical professional in order to get you the remedy you need.
For all patients, both new or of record, our dentists have established a pager system for after-hours service. This way you will always have access to our experienced care when you need it. We will be able to walk you through necessary steps to take in the meantime, depending on your situation. Our dentists can also call in prescriptions in appropriate circumstances. Our top priority is your comfort, and we will work with you to regain a healthy, pain-free smile.
