At El Dorado Family Dental, our dentists are experts in handling dental emergencies and alleviating associated, bothersome symptoms. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We treat patients from all surrounding areas, including El Dorado Hills, Placerville, Folsom, White Rock, Shingle Springs, Cameron Park, and Folsom Ranch.

Our emergency dentists—Dr. Mohamad Albik, Dr. Rika, and Dr. Sherif Hassan—can quickly relieve your discomfort and repair the damage to your teeth or gums.

Common Dental Emergencies

A Deeply Cracked, Chipped, or Broken Tooth 

Cracks, chips, or breaks can damage the tooth's structure, hindering its ability to function correctly. Our El Dorado Hills dental office can repair breaks, cracks, or chips with personalized restorative treatments

Severe Tooth Pain or Sensitivity 

Unrelenting tooth pain or sensitivity can point to other potentially more serious issues, like decay or infection. Your dentist can relieve the pain and offer treatment options that work well and last. 

A Knocked-Out Tooth 

A knocked-out tooth can be frightening, but there's no need to panic. Our dentists can either reinsert the tooth or replace it with a custom-made dental bridge or implant

A Dental Abscess

A dental abscess causes pain, swelling, and often looks like a bump in the mouth that can indicate an oral infection. It's imperative you get this issue treated as quickly as possible to avoid the spread of disease. We can drain the abscess, prescribe antibiotics, or perform gentle root canal therapy or an extraction. If one of the latter two treatments is necessary, we will restore the tooth with a metal-free filling or replace the tooth with an attractive and functional prosthetic. 

No Dental Insurance? No Problem

Our team at El Dorado Family Dental understands that the cost of dentistry can be expensive and deter patients from receiving the treatment they need. But it doesn't have to be this way! 

We are happy to accept various forms of payment, including third-party financing through CareCredit. This healthcare credit card helps uninsured patients to afford treatment with easy repayment options and zero-interest financing.

Our friendly and knowledgeable team can help you apply, which only takes minutes, or we can answer any questions you may have about CareCredit
