They can come out of nowhere, and when it is least convenient: dental emergencies. They can range from a toothache in the middle of the night to a tooth knocked out during a weekend football game. Whatever that issue is, you need dental care, and you need it now.
OnCall Dental provides people in the Fresno area with top-quality, emergency dental care, and it’s there for you 24/7. We have a caring staff, and accept most PPO insurance plans.
In most dental emergency cases, the biggest issue is pain; they are seldom life-threatening. But extreme pain is serious business, and that’s one of the reasons OnCall Dental is here.
Some dental emergencies require quick action, like a knocked-out tooth. If you get a tooth knocked out, it is essential that you get care as soon as possible. If you are treated within thirty minutes, a knocked out tooth can usually be saved. It can even be saved if it’s treated within an hour. Once you get beyond that, however, the chances of saving the tooth decline.
Another serious dental emergency is a swollen face. This could mean an infected tooth, bone infection, or gum infection. If this happens to you, do not delay; this is a case where an infection could be life-threatening. Prompt, professional treatment is essential.
If you have a severe or chronic toothache, give us a call. It could be an abscess or infection that needs treatment. Brush and floss your teeth and apply a cold compress to the outside of the area. You can also take some Ibuprofen.
OnCall Dental provides evening hours for your convenience. We know that there may not be time for a phone call; walk-ins are always welcome.
