Emergency Dentistry FAQs

My tooth got knocked out, what should I do?

If your tooth becomes dislodged from your mouth, try to collect the tooth or its pieces, if possible. Only touch the tooth by the crown, and gently rinse the tooth off. Then, place the tooth in a cup of your own saliva, or in milk. Contact one of our San Francisco offices immediately. Teeth can often be saved if treated within 30 minutes.

If the tooth can not be saved, we offer full-service dental implant procedures to restore your natural smile.

I broke my dental crown, can I fix it?

If you have broken a crown, filling, or any other dental restoration, NEVER attempt to reattach it yourself. Contact our San Francisco, CA dentist office to schedule an appointment to have your restoration restored. We offer CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns for quick and durable dental restorations.

I am in a lot of pain, I think it is my tooth, what should I do?

Tooth pain could be an indicator of many different oral health concerns. If the pain is severe, contact our San Francisco dentist office immediately. Tooth pain could be a symptom of tooth decay, a broken dental restoration, or in rare cases an abscess.

You may use a cold compress on the outside of your mouth to reduce swelling. Ibuprofen can help manage pain while you wait to see a dentist.

What do I do about something stuck in my tooth?

If a food particle or object becomes stuck in the tooth biting surface or between the teeth, you can gently try to dislodge it using dental floss or your toothbrush. DO NOT use a sharp object to loosen it.

If unsuccessful, contact us as soon as possible for advice on how to proceed without damaging the teeth or gums.
