Emergency dental services available
Dental emergencies always arise at the worst possible moment, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get immediate care in and around Livermore, California. Dr. Kimberly King and her team at Kitty Hawk Dental Care provide quality solutions for patients who need emergency dentistry with a walk-in dentist.
What is considered a dental emergency?
Patients who need urgent dental care can speak to our team about their situation to determine if they need same-day dentistry. Below are just some of the common dental emergencies that are seen in our practice:
- Severe toothaches – this may be an indication of a serious issue that might need root canal therapy to address. These may include infection or disease. Treatment should be done sooner instead of later when these issues arise.
- Knocked-out teeth – teeth can be reattached if they have been knocked out, and care is obtained within one to two hours of the incident, so time is of the essence when it comes to urgent dental care!
- Damaged or loose dental work – restorations and other dental work like fillings that are loose or lost may warrant a dental emergency. These will need to be redone as soon as possible to avoid the risk of infection of an exposed tooth.
- Soft tissue cuts/abrasions – cuts and abrasions to the soft tissues of the mouth should be evaluated by an emergency dentist to determine if stitches are needed.
Can I obtain after-hours or weekend care for emergency dental situations?
We offer these services, but it is primarily for patients of record who are already established with our team. It is essential to call our office in a dental emergency to determine what can be done to help you in your moment of need!
