Petaluma Emergency Dentist vs. Emergency Room

Emergency Dentist vs. Emergency RoomPetaluma, CA

Regardless of the type of dental emergency, there are a few set steps a patient needs to take as a response. The first step is to seek immediate medical attention at an emergency room if the individual has any head trauma, large cuts, broken bones or other injuries. An emergency room will be able to treat all wounds and stop any bleeding.

Why should I take my child to you for emergency dental care instead of going to the ER?

While the physicians at the emergency room are skilled at treating health emergencies, they are not familiar with dental care. They can triage any problem your child has by helping to stop the bleeding, but they will not be able to restore a damaged tooth. Likewise, if you take your child to an emergency room due to dental pain, they can provide your child with pain relief; they cannot find out what is causing the pain and work out a plan to solve it. This is why you need to visit the dentist instead. Remember that even if you go to the emergency room, your child will still likely need to visit the dentist anyway. If you live in Petaluma, CA, you can visit us for emergency dental care instead and save yourself time and money.
