San Diego urgent care dentist small logo If your tooth hurts, it's an emergency by our standards. That dull, throbbing pain that keeps you awake? Emergency. Stabbing tooth pain every time you eat something? Emergency. Toothache that just lingers, distracting you from your work, your driving, your life? Emergency. That's not say that a tooth ache is the type of emergency you should call 911 to get help. We have been trained to only think of emergencies as life or death situations, and that's a good thing: we can't have everyone who has a toothache in San Diego calling 911. But the truth is, if you can't focus on other things because of your toothache, it's an emergency. When you have a toothache, it typically means you have already waited too long and it's only going to get worse at that point. So if tooth pain or a tooth ache is an emergency, but you shouldn't call 911, what do you do? The first thing you should do is call your dentist (if you have a regular dentist). Your family dentist knows your history and is always the first person you should call. If you don't have a regular dentist, if you are visiting from out of town, or if your regular dentist can't fit you in, you can call On Demand Dentist. All we deal with is tooth pain, tooth aches, and tooth ache relief. We are an "urgent care for toothaches".
