All About Dental Emergencies

Everyone has a different pain threshold and a different idea of what constitutes a dental emergency. At OnCall Dental in Fresno, we offer urgent dental care, and remind you to never take any chances when it comes to your teeth.

In other words, if you think you might have a dental emergency, don’t delay: hightail it to our office and let us take a look.

Chances are that if you have a genuine dental emergency, you’ll know it. It may be a throbbing toothache or a chipped tooth, or even a tooth knocked out of your mouth. There may be blood. Use your best judgment, but always err on the side of caution.


You can sustain a tooth fracture in any number of ways. You might fall of your bicycle or take an elbow to the mouth during a pickup basketball game. You could damage a tooth in a car accident: in a world with no guarantees, a dental trauma could occur in a multitude of different ways.

Things to consider:

  • Is there any pain?
  • If so, how great is it?
  • Is there blood?
  • Is there a chipped or cracked tooth?

At OnCall Dental in Fresno we specialize in emergency dentistry. A toothache won’t get better on its own; a chipped tooth won’t repair itself. But we can help. In emergency cases you do not need an appointment; walk-ins are always welcome.
