Find An Emergency Dentist in Elk GroveOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Elk Grove is a city with a population of around 170,000. It’s located in Sacramento County, and is just south of Sacramento City. Three in ten people in California avoid smiling because of the condition of their mouth and teeth, according to the American Dental Association1. Without preventive care, which is going to the dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning, your teeth can easily develop problems. Only brushing and cleaning your teeth isn’t enough to maintain your dental health, but regularly seeing the dentist is. Even if a problem develops, the dentist can see it while it’s still in its early stages. Otherwise, you’d have to get a costly and extensive procedure requiring an emergency dentist, in which case you can call us to locate one for you at 1-800-336-8478.

How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in Elk GroveOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
A dental emergency can mean a number of things. You can call us if you’re experiencing any of the following conditions: if your tooth is loose, chipped, fractured or knocked out; if your crown feel out or is broken; if you have facial swelling due to an abscess; if your jaw is broken; if a wire came off your braces and is scratching your gums or your cheek; if you have knots or swelling on your gums, or bleeding gums. Our service is absolutely free, and you can call us at any time of the day. Since we cooperate with many dentist offices in Elk Grove, we have access to their appointment books, and can schedule an appointment even when they’re closed. That means that even if you call us in the middle of the night, we can schedule an appointment with an emergency dentist for the first thing in the morning for you.
Elk Grove has around 130 dentists3, and while it seems that number is enough, most of the time when you need a dentist, you can’t find one that’s available. Most dental emergencies occur in off hours, such as weekends, when most dentists aren’t open. Even if you go to websites such as Yelp, you won’t be able to find a dentist that can take you in immediately. If you give us a call, our dental referral specialists will make sure you have an appointment scheduled with an emergency dentist near you in less than three minutes.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
If you’re suffering from dental anxiety, you should inform both us and the dentist about it. When you call us and tell us you’re afraid of the dentist, we will locate one for you that uses sedation, such as nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas. You need to tell the dentist you have anxiety, so he can make you feel relaxed. He will guide you through the whole procedure, letting you know he will do each step of the way. He can also tell you to signal him with your hand when you either feel pain or you need a short break. Don’t be embarrassed to tell the dentist you feel pain. Since some people are naturally resistant to anesthesia, you might need more of it, so speak up. Another thing you should pay attention to when at the dentist is breathing properly. Most people tend to hold their breath when in the dentist’s chair because they’re afraid of the pain. However, not breathing normally will only put you under more stress, due to your body not getting enough oxygen.
When seeing a new dentist, first contact your previous one to get your dental records. They help your dentist see what procedures you’ve done before and what you might need to do next. Also, write down any dental problems you might have had since your last visit so the dentist can focus more on your tooth sensitivity, bleeding gums, etc.

Around 25% of people in California feel embarrassment due to the condition of their mouth and teeth, according to the American Dental Association1. In addition, a research done by McKinsey & Company has showed that 35% of Californians haven’t been to the dentist in the last 12 months4. We’ve talked about the importance of preventive care, and how regularly going to the dentist keeps your teeth healthy. Even insurance companies confirm this because they include two free checkups and cleanings a year in most of their plans. While saving money on not doing extensive procedures is nice, keeping your dental health in top condition is much better. In case you do develop a dental problem, and you need an emergency dentist call us. We will locate a dentist in Elk Grove near you and schedule an appointment for you, regardless of your insurance. If you have it, we will locate a dentist that is in network with your insurance. If you’re without it, we can also find a dentist that accepts other forms of payment, or even offers help with financing.
In case you were planning to get a walk-in at a dentist near you, think about calling us first. Most dentists work by appointment only, and will most likely turn you away if you don’t have one scheduled. Instead, we can immediately schedule an appointment with a dentist near you, so you don’t have to risk getting turned away.
Top emergency dentist procedures in Elk GroveLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
The most common emergency procedure in Elk Grove is treatment of a chipped tooth or a crown. If not treated, both conditions may result in an infection, or a tooth getting fractured. If your tooth gets knocked out, you should treat as an immediate dental emergency. Rinse both your mouth and the tooth with warm water, but be careful not to touch the root of the tooth. It may have some tissue on it that will help the dentist successfully put it back into its socket. After you rinse it, try putting it back into its socket until you get to the dentist. If you can’t, then put it into a container filled with milk, and call us to schedule you an immediate appointment with an emergency dentist near you.
