A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. We understand that you can’t always plan when you will need our care. This may be to stop bleeding, alleviate severe tooth pain, treat tooth infections, or save a damaged tooth. Regardless of what brings you to our office, our team is here to help provide relief!
Dental emergencies are more common than you might think! We can address most dental emergencies in-office, including severe toothaches, a lost crown or filling, soft tissue damage, a cracked or fractured tooth, a chipped or broken tooth, or a knocked-out tooth.
Our team will do everything possible to accommodate our emergency patients with same-day appointments! We also welcome walk-in patients. Please try to call ahead of time. This will allow a team member to help address your immediate needs and suggest ways to care for your smile until your appointment. We want to make sure you’re comfortable!
While your first instinct may be to go to the ER, hospital emergency rooms aren’t set up to handle dental emergencies. According to the American Dental Association, dental emergencies account for about 5% of all visits to the emergency room. This statistic highlights the importance of seeking dental treatment during a dental emergency, as emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental issues and may not provide the necessary treatment. Please call Modesto Dentistry and Implants for prompt care and attention for general dental emergencies.
