A dental emergency is any condition that is causing you serious oral pain, discomfort, or bleeding. This means that lots of different things are considered to be dental emergencies, from toothaches to oral injuries, damaged dental work like crowns, and much more.
If you’re in pain and you think that your condition counts as a dental emergency, you’re probably right. So don’t wait. We offer same-day care at Sutter Dental Collective, and Dr. Stein and our dental team can provide you with the treatment you need. Contact us at (415) 781-4725 to schedule an appointment immediately, and get relief from your pain in San Francisco.

Eliminate pain and discomfort – First, you’ll get relief from your pain. The pain of a dental emergency like a broken tooth or a toothache can interfere with working, going to school, or otherwise living your day-to-day life. With same-day emergency dentistry in San Francisco, you can get the relief you need. We even offer sedation dentistry to help you get the treatment you need without fear, pain, or anxiety.
Prevent complications – Generally speaking, the sooner you get help for a dental emergency, the more likely it is that you can avoid serious complications. So by getting timely treatment, you’ll also save time and money, since you can avoid the need for more complex and invasive dental care.

If your mouth is bleeding, you can use clean gauze, cotton balls, or paper towels to apply pressure to the area and absorb blood. Taking ibuprofen or another over-the-counter medication can help with pain, and icing the cheek near the affected area may also help reduce swelling and discomfort.
You can’t treat dental injuries and emergencies on your own. So make sure you come to Sutter Dental Collective ASAP for expert dental treatment in San Francisco.
A knocked-out tooth is the most time-sensitive dental emergency. To save your tooth, our team will need to replace it and split it within 1-2 hours at most. So if you’ve knocked out a tooth, recover it. Grab it by the top (crown) not the bottom (root) to avoid damaging the nerve of the tooth.
Next, rinse the tooth with water. Do not use soap to clean your tooth. Then, put your tooth into a container of cold milk to keep it moist. Call Sutter Dental Collective immediately at (415) 781-4725 to tell us that you have a knocked-out tooth, and that you’re coming into our office for treatment.
We will make room in our schedule to make sure we can save your tooth. After you call, come to our office as soon as you possibly can. The sooner Dr. Stein replaces your tooth, the more likely it is that it can be saved.
