What steps should I take if I experience a dental emergency?

If you experience a dental emergency, it’s important to stay calm and act quickly. If you damage an oral prosthetic, such as a crown or bridge, carefully pick up the pieces and rinse them off in cool tap water. Then, put the pieces of the prosthetic in a plastic bag.

If you knocked out a tooth, pick it up, rinse it off, and try and place it back in the socket. If it won’t stay in place, tuck it inside your cheek, or put it in a glass of milk.

Next, call San Ramon Dental Excellence. Explain your emergency and the symptoms you’re experiencing. The team may be able to provide you with tips to limit pain or bleeding on your way to the office.

How can I avoid emergency dentistry?

If you want to avoid a trip to the emergency dentist, it’s important to take preventive measures that can lower your risk of an accident or injury.

The team at San Ramon Dental Excellence recommends practicing good oral hygiene, quitting tobacco use, and visiting the office every six months for a professional exam and cleaning.
