As an experienced dental team, we understand how upsetting a dental emergency is and that the only thing on your mind is getting the care and relief you need. At Sabino Hills Family Dentistry, we leave openings in our schedule so we address emergencies, and, in most cases, we can see you the same day, especially if you’re in pain.
What to Do During a Dental Emergency
If you have a situation that’s developing with your oral health, call us right away at (520) 760-6044. You will speak with a team member who knows which questions to ask to find out if we need to see you right away and give you instructions for handling your emergency until you get to our office.
Types of Dental Emergencies
The two most critical dental emergencies are a knocked-out tooth and severe tooth pain that makes it difficult to function normally. Any pain is a symptom of a problem and needs to be addressed. But any pain that makes it difficult to function means that you may be in imminent danger of losing the tooth if we don’t treat it.
If a tooth has been knocked out, we have only a few hours to replace it in the socket successfully. Handle the tooth by the crown only and keep it moist in a container of milk, water, or saliva until you can safely get to our office.
