At El Dorado Hills Dental Wellness, we understand that dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly and cause discomfort, pain, and anxiety. Our compassionate dental team, led by Dr. Rika Prodhan-Ashraf, is dedicated to providing prompt and efficient emergency dental care to alleviate your pain, address your dental concerns, and restore your oral health as quickly as possible.
Common Dental Emergencies: We are prepared to handle a wide range of dental emergencies, including:
Toothaches: Severe toothaches can be caused by various factors, such as tooth decay, dental abscess, or a cracked tooth. We will diagnose the underlying cause and provide appropriate treatment to alleviate the pain.
Knocked-Out Teeth: If a tooth is knocked out due to trauma or injury, immediate dental care is crucial. We will do our best to save the tooth by re-implanting it or providing alternative tooth replacement options.
Chipped, Fractured, or Broken Teeth: Dental trauma or accidents can result in chipped, fractured, or broken teeth. We will assess the extent of the damage and provide appropriate treatments, such as dental bonding, dental crowns, or veneers, to restore the tooth’s structure and appearance.
Loose or Dislodged Teeth: Teeth that are loosened or partially dislodged due to trauma require immediate attention. Our dental team will stabilize the tooth and recommend appropriate treatments to save and strengthen it.
Lost Dental Restorations: If a dental crown, filling, or other dental restoration comes loose or falls out, we can provide emergency care to repair or replace the restoration, relieving discomfort and restoring function.
Prompt Emergency Dental Care: When you experience a dental emergency, it is important to seek immediate dental care. Our dental team is equipped to handle emergencies and provides the following:
Same-Day Appointments: We strive to offer same-day appointments for dental emergencies, ensuring that you receive prompt care when you need it most.
Pain Management: We will alleviate your pain and discomfort through appropriate measures, such as prescribing pain medications, providing local anesthesia, or performing necessary procedures to address the underlying issue.
Comprehensive Examination: Our dental team will conduct a thorough examination to diagnose the problem and assess the extent of the dental emergency. We may use X-rays or other imaging techniques to aid in our evaluation.
Tailored Treatment Plan: Once the dental emergency is stabilized, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to address the immediate concerns and restore your oral health in the long term. We will discuss all available treatment options and guide you through the decision-making process.

Emergency dentistry is needed when one of the following situations arises:
All of the above can lead to tooth loss and emergency room visits for pain. Any emergency doctor will tell you, however, that the solution for dental problems is a dentist! If you are experiencing an emergency dental situation near El Dorado Hills, we are ready to assist you.
The dentist and staff of El Dorado Hills Dental Wellness know that dental pain is no joke! A painful tooth can be caused by many different issues. If a visual scan or intraoral photography does not reveal the immediate problem, x-rays will likely be necessary to look for causes. The source of tooth pain may include:
Our examination will reveal the cause and we will proceed to the remedy. Tooth pain can be a sign of serious illness and can progress to dangerous problems, if not handled immediately.
Do not let any of these disasters jeopardize your life or that of your family and friends. Toothache does not go away by itself or with painkillers. Only fixing the source of the pain can end your problem.
“The longer the tooth is out, the less chance of having a successful implantation.” — Dr. Kimberly Harms, ADA spokesperson
If your tooth, crown, bridge, implant or other restoration has broken or become dislodged, collect the parts, if possible, and come to our E Street office immediately. Before you arrive, take the following steps:
Clean the tooth or restoration gently using whatever means are available, preferably water, saliva or the classic milk.
Reinsert the tooth or part where it belongs. If that is not possible, keep it between your cheek and gum.
Bite down on a wet rag or tea bag to keep the tooth in place.
Apply a cold compress to your cheek to keep swelling down.
Alert our office at (916) 933-3011 and immediately come to the dentist.
