Same-Day Emergency Care
Our Roseville dental practice is here for your family, and we’re committed to always giving you top-notch care – and that includes during the inevitable curveballs that life always seems to toss our way.
While good preventive dental care and healthy self-care habits can decrease your risk for a number of dental concerns, they can’t completely eliminate them. You may still wake up with a sore tooth and swollen gums, and all the preventive care in the world won’t stop your child from catching a pop fly with their mouth instead of their glove. When incidents like these happen, you’ll feel better knowing that your friendly family dentist Dr. Mandeep Randhawa is available.
Same-Day Emergency Appointments
If you or a member of your family is experiencing a dental emergency, call us right away. We offer same-day emergency dental appointments to help treat the problem and relieve your pain. We’ll also create an effective treatment plan if further treatment is needed to completely restore your smile.
We completely understand that life can get in the way, and our goal is to keep your teeth and gums healthy and free from pain. Emergency care is a crucial part of that.
What Is a Dental Emergency?
Some patients aren’t sure whether or not they should call because they aren’t sure if their concern is an actual “emergency” or not.
Here's a quick test:
Are you in pain?
If the answer is yes, then you are having a dental emergency. You should never experience dental pain, and we will do whatever we can to relieve your pain, find the underlying cause, and treat it.
Other dental emergencies we treat include:
- Teeth that have been knocked out or knocked loose
- Swelling in the gums or cheeks
- Injuries to the soft tissues, including your gums, tongue, and palate
- Cracked or fractured teeth
- Damaged dental work including lost fillings or broken crowns
- Abscesses, which may present as a pimple-like lesion
Many parents aren’t aware that a child prematurely losing a baby tooth (the tooth coming out before it becomes loose on its own) is a dental emergency. Baby teeth serve a number of important functions. One of these functions is to serve as a placeholder for the permanent teeth. If a tooth comes out too early, the other teeth could “drift” slightly and make it more difficult for the permanent tooth to come in correctly, which could result in expensive orthodontic care later. We’ll assess the damage and see if a placeholder or other treatment is necessary.
One important note – some emergencies, although they affect the mouth, should be treated in an emergency room rather than a dental office. If you are experiencing any of the following, please go to your nearest ER or call 911:
- A head injury that results in loss of consciousness, dizziness, or vomiting
- Bleeding that doesn’t stop with application of pressure
- A broken or dislocated jaw
- Choking or difficulty breathing
