Drs. Nordstrom and Thai leave time in their daily schedule to help emergency patients, and our team does its best to provide same-day dentistry if possible. Don't hesitate to call your trusted emergency dentist in Vallejo at (707) 643-2660 if you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency.
When Is It a Dental Emergency?
Some of the tooth emergencies that our dentists can help with are:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Toothaches or dental pain
- Infected or abscessed teeth
- Fractured or cracked dentures
- Knocked-out (avulsed) teeth
We encourage our patients to contact us first if they feel like they're in the middle of a tooth emergency. If you head to a hospital emergency room first, you may lose valuable time and money since they're not well-equipped to handle tooth emergencies. Instead, they will most likely direct you back to your dentist for treatment.
If you call our dental office first, our team can assess your condition over the phone and determine if you need immediate attention. This ensures that you get the treatment you need as quickly as possible.
How to Avoid a Dental Emergency
While accidents and trauma do play a role in causing some types of dental emergencies, there are some emergencies you can avoid.
If you visit our dentists regularly for teeth cleanings and checkups, they can let you know about any concerns they see looming in your future. That way, you can proactively treat problems as soon as possible before they become more significant issues.
For example, if your dentist diagnoses tooth decay early on and you treat it right away, you'll likely be able to eliminate it with a simple dental filling. However, if tooth decay goes undiagnosed or untreated, it worsens and can move further into your tooth until it reaches your nerve and causes a painful infection. A tooth infection requires root canal treatment to eliminate it and preserve your tooth.
By being proactive about your preventive care appointments, you can save time and money.
