What to Do?

You can’t schedule for an emergency, but when it happens it’s nice to know you can count on your favorite dental practice to be there for you. Emergency dental care is just one more of the general dentistry services you and your family can expect.  So when the sports injury, bike mishap, or fall from a swing leaves someone in your family in pain, please call us as soon as possible.

If you call outside of normal office hours, you’ll hear a message directing you what to do in case of an emergency.  Usually, you’ll be able to get an emergency appointment that same day.  Call as soon as you can, because the sooner a damaged tooth can be treated, the better your chance of successful treatment.  For non-dental emergencies, or when you are unable to reach us, immediately seek care at the closest emergency room.

Broken Tooth
If possible, gather the pieces of the tooth and bring them to the office with you. To minimize exposure to a sensitive tooth, you can temporarily cover it with sugar-free gum, wax, or over-the-counter products made for this purpose.  Call us.

Loose Permanent Tooth
Rinse the affected area. If it is not too painful to do so, try to shift the tooth into its correct position.  Try not to wiggle the tooth much and stick to eating soft liquid like foods.  Call us.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth
Never try to put a baby tooth back into place. If a permanent tooth is knocked out, first find the missing tooth.  Rinse the affected area and the tooth to get rid of any debris. If you can, replace the tooth in its normal position. If not, store the tooth in milk, saliva, water, or an over-the-counter tooth-saving solution.  Call us and bring the tooth with you.

Everyone at Solana Beach Smiles is amazing. They always go above and beyond for their patients. Especially Anita, Marlene, Tia and of course Dr. Jesse! Needed help with scheduling because we have a newborn and a crazy schedule, and Anita bent over backwards to accommodate our family.

Just had my "teeth cleaning" appointment, and as usual, was great! Quick, easy & comfortable - Love my hygienist, she is the best. Thank you, Dr. Jessy, for your wonderful, caring staff.
