AFTER-HOURS EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE IN DUBLIN, CA
When you call us for emergency dental care in Dublin, California, outside of normal business hours, your call is forwarded to a messaging system. A transcript of your call is then sent directly to our emergency dentist on call so that he can reply to you quickly, even if it's at night or on the weekend. In most cases, we walk you through what to do until we're able to see you in our office on the next business day.
Common Dental Emergencies
We provide emergency dental care for a variety of circumstances, including:
Broken & Cracked Teeth: A chipped, avulsed (knocked out), or broken tooth needs to be treated right away. If possible, find the missing tooth fragment and gently rinse away any visible debris. Do not scrub it clean. Store the tooth in a cup of milk and bring it straight to our office.
Abscessed Teeth: A 'pimple' along the gums near your tooth is usually an indication that the tooth has abscessed and will need a root canal. Take an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen to relieve swelling and discomfort.
Crowns Falling Off: Be sure to locate your crown and store it in a zip-top bag so that you do not accidentally lose it. If it is on a front tooth, you can use temporary store-bought cement to "bond" the crown temporarily until you make it to our office for dental services.
