Doctor Roessler on Dental Emergencies
Here at our office, we do see dental emergencies. They happen all the time. We try to get the patient in that day. If they call and something has happened to them that they need to get in to see us, we will see them that day to find out what’s going on. A lot of times, we don’t have time in our schedule to actually do that that day, although we tried to accommodate them as best as we can. If we can’t, I can refer them to somebody, a specialist, let’s say they need to have it, they’ve got a tremendous toothache and they need to have a root canal. We can certainly refer them to one of the several specialists that are offered here in our office, or if it’s something to do with their gums, we can refer them to a periodontist if that’s something that we can’t handle here, but the important thing is, is we’ll see dental emergencies on that day if somebody calls on the phone. We’d like to see them right away just to be able to address their concern.
