Emergency Dental Care in Fresno

Murphy’s Law teaches us that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

That applies to a lot of things – everything, really – including our teeth. Why is it that dental emergencies only seem to happen on weekends, or at night, when it’s after-hours for most dental practices?

In Fresno, Clovis, and Madera, OnCall Dental Urgent Care is there for you, 24/7, with emergency dental care. Did you knock a tooth out, playing what was supposed to be a game of touch football? Did your son or daughter wake up in the middle of the night with an excruciating toothache?

Sometimes we think we can wait until the dentist office opens in the morning, or on Monday. That might seem pragmatic, especially for those with a high pain threshold. But some emergencies really do require immediate attention, like what dentists call an avulsed tooth. (That’s a tooth that’s been knocked out.)

Avulsed teeth can usually be saved if they are treated within half an hour. That’s a narrow window, so you can see the importance of emergency care.

An abscessed tooth may not require immediate care, in the sense of being an immediate threat to dental health. But the pain can be considerable. There is more than one cause of an abscess, including cavities and cracked teeth. The sooner it is treated, the better.

Because Murphy’s Law means a dental emergency will happen at the worst possible time, OnCall Dental is open seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. But it doesn’t have to be an emergency: we also provide a wide range of general dentistry services.

Above all, we are there to take care of you. We can get you through any dental emergency. Walk-ins are always welcome.

Tooth Extractions: What To Know

Sometimes the only way to fix a damaged tooth is to remove it. At OnCall Dental – Fresno, we frequently perform tooth extractions for patients of all ages. Today’s blog post takes a look at the dental extraction procedure and what you should expect.

First, the dentist will numb the area to keep you pain-free during the procedure. You may experience some bleeding, but it is normal and usually no cause for concern. Make sure to follow your dentist’s directions for follow-up care and diet. Do not smoke after your procedure and avoid drinking through a straw. Ice packs can usually take care of any swelling.

In addition to removing decayed or damaged teeth, dental extractions help relieve pain and discomfort caused by crowded teeth. In addition to making teeth healthier, removing teeth can improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence. If you’re interest in removing one or more teeth, and it’s not an emergency, feel free to schedule a consultation with us. For severe pain or other emergency dentistry situations, call our office immediately at 599-477-4553 . We’re for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Don’t Skip Out On the Dentist

Life gets busy. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up with everything you “gotta do”. At OnCall Dental – Fresno, we understand that. But we urge you to think twice before you cancel or postpone a dental checkup because you think it’s less important than the other twenty items on your to-do list.

Twice-yearly dental exams are crucial for keeping your smile in optimal shape!

“But my teeth feel fine.”
We’ve heard this excuse. The fact is that no news isn’t necessarily good news. Dental issues can be progressing without you being aware of it.

1. Your Gums May Be Receding
Gum recession doesn’t happen all at once. Gum tissue can move back almost imperceptibly until teeth and bone are in danger.

2. Decay May Be Lurking
When the acids in plaque start drilling into a tooth, we usually don’t feel it until it has passed through the enamel and dentin and hits the nerve. Ouch! By that time, there is a crater in the tooth. Regular cleanings remove plaque before it can do any deterioration.

3. Prevent Oral Cancer
About 50,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.1 Dentist Mirelez will screen for oral cancer during your exam. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is indispensable.

After your entire mouth has been examined, we will detail what is required moving forward. Whether that’s flossing more often or discussing major fixes such as braces, we will be sure that you get all the information you need to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful! Scheduling twice-yearly exams at OnCall Dental – Fresno will ensure you avoid acute dental issues.

To request an appointment, call us at OnCall Dental – Fresno today. We offer convenient night and weekend hours to accommodate your busy lifestyle if you are in the area, including Madera and Clovis.
