Who Can I Reach out to in Case of a Dental Emergency?
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
Unexpected problems never happen at a convenient time. The same applies to dental emergencies. Dr. John A. Garza and his team assist Gilbert, AZ area patients with their dental emergencies regardless of their affiliation with the practice. Many of our emergency dental patients are new to our practice and continue seeking care with our team.
What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is anything that occurs to the smile that may require immediate assistance. This can be a knock to the mouth that breaks or loosens a tooth, or a severe toothache that keeps patients awake at night and cannot be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Cuts to the soft tissues in the mouth may also require the care of a dental professional to address.
What do I do in case of a dental emergency?
First off, don’t panic! Dr. John A. Garza and his team are dedicated to helping patients when the unexpected occurs. Gilbert, AZ area patients can contact the practice any time day or night to speak to a professional regarding their needs. For patients who can be seen the next day, our on-call staff will schedule an appointment. Same day appointments might be available for incidences that happen earlier in the morning or afternoon. True health emergencies may still require a visit to the local emergency room for assistance, depending on the situation. Our dental team will help wherever possible and get you in for treatment as soon as we can!
When can I make an appointment?
We encourage patients to call our practice with their dental emergency to receive instructions from one of our experienced on-call staff members. We may make a recommendation of visiting an emergency room or scheduling a next day appointment as needed. Patients facing a situation during the day may be able to arrange a same-day visit depending on the appointments scheduled at the office.
