Have you experienced a dental emergency? It’s nearly impossible to predict when an accident will happen that may compromise your dental health or the aesthetic of your smile. They can happen to virtually anyone at any given time. If you have sustained a dental emergency, Dr. Cajee maintains a flexible schedule so you can be seen promptly the same day.
What same-day emergency dentistry options are available to me?
Dr. Cajee can address patients who may be experiencing tooth pain and toothaches along with a wide array of dental emergencies for those in Manteca, Lathrop, Ripon, Tracy, Salida, Escalon, Weston Ranch, French Camp, Stockton, and Modesto.
What if I am experiencing a toothache?
If you have sustained an injury through an accident, be sure to schedule your same-day emergency appointment with Dr. Cajee should you experience any pain or discomfort. Once the problematic area is carefully evaluated, we can plan a course of treatment to help restore comfortability.
What if I broke, cracked, or chipped a tooth?
Be sure to rinse out your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your face where pain may be present. Call us at your earliest convenience and schedule your same-day appointment with Dr. Cajee. Should the tooth be chipped or broken, wrap the fragment in a wet towel or gauze and bring it to your appointment, if possible.
What if a tooth was knocked out or loosened?
If one or more teeth be knocked out due to an injury, using a clean washcloth gently insert the lost tooth back in its socket if possible. While doing this, it’s important to hold the tooth by the crown rather than the root. If the tooth is dirty, rinse the root to avoid any possible infection, however, do not scrub it or apply any pressure cleaning it. If reinsertion is not possible, place the tooth beneath your tongue or in a small container or cup of milk. Milk is comprised of proteins, sugar, and anti-bacterial properties that can control the tooth’s acid-to-alkaline ratio and keep cells growing.
What if I bit my tongue or lip?
Gently clean the area with a damp cloth and apply a cold compress to the area to minimize any swelling. Should bleeding be excessive or persist, be sure to schedule your same-day emergency appointment.
