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 Hanford, 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.
