Whether you've lost a tooth due to a sports accident or are suffering from an infected tooth, our Sacramento emergency dentist is here and ready to help alleviate your pain so that you can get back to enjoying life. Contact us today and let our friendly team provide expert dental emergency services.


A dental emergency applies to more than an instance of a tooth getting knocked out during a sporting event. While an avulsed (knocked out) tooth definitely qualifies as a dental emergency, there are other instances as well. If you or a loved one chipped a tooth, that would be a good reason to call our practice so that we can inspect the damage and walk you through the next steps to restore the tooth. Here are a few examples of what qualifies as a dental emergency:

  • Toothache
  • Pain in the jaws
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Abscess on the gums
  • Avulsed (knocked out) tooth
  • Pain when chewing or speaking


Emergencies are never convenient, but our friendly team goes above and beyond to make sure we offer the services you need when you need them. Whether you or a loved one is facing a dental emergency, we do everything possible to see you on the same day, and we even open the office on select Saturdays to accommodate your needs.

If a dental emergency occurs after our usual business hours, then our patients of record are able to leave a message, and our dedicated team will get back to you as soon as possible. If we cannot see you on the same day as your emergency, we'll get you in the following business day and advise you on ways to alleviate the pain at home until your emergency visit.


Sacramento emergency dentistExperiencing a dental emergency can cause anxiety, and we understand that root canal therapy is a procedure that may seem intimidating. We perform nearly all cases of root canals, except for retreatments. Our gentle team will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if this treatment is necessary.

In cases of serious infection, we will prescribe an antibiotic to help reduce the pain and the infection until we can move forward with the treatment. Additionally, we offer nitrous to help keep you as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

Root canal therapy begins with our emergency dentist creating a tiny access point in the infected tooth, and then gently removing the diseased pulp to preserve your natural tooth and halt the spread of infection. Then the dentist will fill the tooth chamber with an antibacterial solution and seal off the tooth. If a crown is necessary, then we will gently place one over the tooth to restore its full functionality.


Our team is passionate about preserving your natural teeth, but we recognize that sometimes accidents or an infected tooth may leave no options except for an extraction. At Truxel Dental Group, we carefully evaluate your oral health and discuss your treatment options as well as why tooth extraction may be necessary. We want you to have all of the facts so that you can feel confident in the recommended treatment and how it will improve your overall oral health, including treatments such as bone grafts. After an extraction, a bone graft may be necessary to preserve the density of your jawbone in order to support a dental implant. We also do everything possible to maximize your comfort, including offering sedation options.

We also offer dental implant services so that your missing tooth can be restored with a high-quality dental restoration. Our team is passionate about safeguarding your overall oral health as well as your quality of life.


If you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, call us for help. At Truxal Dental Group, our Sacramento emergency dentist is passionate about providing great service you can count on.
