Emergency Dental Care

The onset of a tooth emergency can turn your life upside down. Whether it’s a knocked-out tooth or a painful tooth infection, dental pain is said to be some of the worst.

At Citrus Grove Dentistry, we understand that when you’re experiencing a dental emergency, you need relief as soon as possible. Dental pain can keep you up at night and take away your ability to concentrate and think clearly.

Your emergency dentist in Citrus Heights is here to ensure that you get the help you need to eliminate your discomfort and get you back on the path to wellness. You can contact our dental office at (916) 961-2180 to receive prompt assistance with your dental emergency, even if you’ve never visited our practice before. It is our commitment to you to find the time in our schedule to see any patient who is experiencing pain

How We Help with Tooth Emergencies in Citrus Heights

If your tooth is broken, knocked out (avulsed), or causing you severe discomfort, we encourage you to contact your team at Citrus Grove Dentistry right away. Many tooth emergencies are time-sensitive, meaning that we only have a short opportunity to preserve your tooth as in the case of a knocked-out tooth and some dental infections, so it’s essential to call us right away.

If you are unsure if you are truly experiencing a tooth emergency, call us anyway. We are happy to discuss your condition with you over the phone to determine if you need immediate attention. In many cases, you might not need treatment right away, and we can offer advice on what to do until you can schedule an appointment at Citrus Grove Dentistry.

If you are considering heading to a hospital emergency room, please contact our dental office first. Emergency rooms are not often well-equipped to handle dental emergencies and will send you back to your dentist anyway.

What to Expect at an Emergency Appointment

Depending on your situation, Citrus Grove Dentistry offers several dental services that can alleviate many tooth emergencies.

Dr. Erickson recommends root canal treatment if your tooth is abscessed or infected. This procedure will eliminate your infection, while also saving your tooth from an extraction. Better yet, root canal therapy will immediately alleviate your tooth pain.

A tooth extraction may be necessary if your tooth is decayed or infected past the point where root canal treatment can help. We provide comfortable tooth extractions and support throughout your recovery process.

If your tooth is broken or decayed, your Citrus Heights emergency dentist may recommend a dental filling or crown depending on the severity of the damage.

For tooth loss, Dr. Erickson offers dental bridges as well as tooth implants that can be completed from start to finish at Citrus Grove Dentistry.

Don’t wait to call our Citrus Heights dental office at (916) 961-2180 if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
