Enhanced Patient Safety

Hospital vs. Dentist Office

During a dental emergency it can be difficult to decide whether the hospital or your dentist office is the best place to seek treatment. Situations that require a hospital visit include jaw injuries such as dislocations and fractures, severe injuries to the mouth or face as well as an infection that inhibits breathing.

A visit to the dentist is more appropriate for situations such as a broken or knocked out tooth. The dentist office is not always open when you are experiencing a dental emergency. In cases such as this try calling the office and listening the voice recording. Sometimes your San Ramon dentist, Dr. Kachalia, will provide a contact that will be able to help you through your emergency.
