Emergency Dentistry Q & A

Do I need emergency dentistry?

When sudden pain or an injury occurs, it’s natural to assume you should head to the emergency room. But that visit will cost you both time in the waiting room and money. To help you get the best care for your mouth right away, Cow Hollow Dental Center offers emergency dentistry.

Patients may need emergency dental care for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Sudden, severe tooth pain
  • A cracked tooth
  • A knocked out tooth

If a tooth has been knocked out, the best thing you can do is hold it in place in the socket as you head to Cow Hollow Dental Center. Take extra care not to accidentally swallow the tooth. If you can’t comfortably keep the tooth in place, keep it in a container of your saliva or milk and keep a compress on the socket to minimize bleeding.

Do I need to be an existing patient to get emergency dental care?

Absolutely not. At Cow Hollow Dental Center, Dr. Smith and Dr. Donnelly know that life can be unpredictable. Whether you’re traveling across the Bay, across the country, or across the globe, they’re available to help you with any dental emergencies that may arise while you’re in San Francisco.

What’s more, they’re here to be a resource. If you have a pressing question, don’t hesitate to contact them. They believe that any dental emergency, whether small or major, deserves dedicated care from an educated team.

How can I avoid dental emergencies?

While you can’t steer clear of every dental emergency, you can take some preventive measures. For example, if you or a loved one play sports, make sure a mouth guard is used. Also, build a relationship with your dentist and make sure you’re getting regular teeth exams and cleanings. If you’ve been looking for a dedicated, expert dental team to serve your entire family, Dr. Donnelly, Dr. Smith, and their staff at Cow Hollow Dental Center would love to help you keep your mouth healthy.

Tooth pain is known to come and go, but it’s definitely not worth ignoring. Visit Cow Hollow Dental Center regularly to ensure your mouth stays healthy.

Whether you’re visiting San Francisco from afar or are a lifelong Cow Hollow resident, Cow Hollow Dental Center is here for all of your emergency dentistry needs. Never hesitate to call their office or schedule an appointment online.
