Accidents, injuries, and prolonged neglect can cause dental emergencies. At Advanced Dental Concepts in Roseville, CA, we are here to help.
If you are having a dental emergency, the first thing you need to do is call us at 916-945-9985. The sooner you call, the faster you can get the treatment you need. You can normally get an appointment the same day you call if we are still open. If we are closed, you will get an after-hours phone number to call for help. Sometimes, we are able to come in on nights and weekends depending on the time in question.
If you are bleeding, use a sterile gauze or cloth and pressure to stop it. If you cannot stop the bleeding, go to your local emergency room instead. Stopping the bleeding is the first concern.
If you are unsure whether your problem requires an emergency appointment, you are not alone. Many people don’t want to bother us with non-emergencies. Dr. Miller and the team here at our Roseville, CA dental clinic are here for you. You can always call us, and we’ll do our best to help. Here are some conditions that definitely qualify as emergencies:
This depends on the nature of your dental emergency.
While no one can predict accidents and injuries, there are steps you can take to help prevent them. First, always wear an athletic mouthguard when riding a bike or playing sports. Keep up with regular cleanings and exams at our Roseville, CA dental office. Healthy teeth are less likely to be injured. You can also make a dental emergency kit at home. Take a small, sealable container for any lost teeth, a bottle of clean water, sterile gauze, and a piece of paper with our name, address, and phone number. Time is of the essence in an emergency, and having this kit ready could help a lot.
Remember: if you have dental emergencies, call us immediately at 916-945-9985.
