What to Do with a
Knocked-Out Tooth

Time is of the essence. Recover your knocked-out tooth, rinse it off with clean water only. Put it in milk or place gently back into the tooth socket or set in your mouth next to your cheek to keep it moist. Make sure to only handle the top of the tooth, known as the 'crown' and not touch the tooth root to avoid damaging this delicate area.

Next, call us and let us know you’re coming in right away. You must have your tooth replaced and splinted within 1-2 hours. If you wait too long, the pulp of the tooth may die, and we will not be able to save it. So, above all else, prioritize coming into Downey Park Family Dentistry right away. 

Do not try to treat your pain or bleeding on your own. To ensure that your tooth can be replaced and saved, come see Dr. Acree as soon as you can. Call now at (209) 529-0674 to make your same-day appointment.

Common Emergency
Procedures

During any dental emergency, we offer powerful numbing agents and sedation to get you out of pain immediately and keep you comfortable throughout your procedure. Depending on the type of dental emergency you are experiencing, we will suggest different treatments to repair oral damage. Some of the most common emergency procedures include:

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to treat large cavities that are too extensive for treatment with fillings, and they are also the best option for repairing cracked and damaged teeth. Crowns may also be required to protect a tooth after root canal therapy. The crowns made at Downey Park Family Dentistry look and feel natural, so you will still enjoy a beautiful, aesthetically-pleasing smile after your treatment.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy may be required to restore a tooth that has become infected due to deep decay or an oral injury. During treatment, the damaged and decayed tooth pulp is removed from the interior of the tooth. area is filled with a dental material and a crown is placed over the tooth to retain the tooth strength and integrity.

Dental implants and Bridges

A dental implant or a bridge is a great option to replace a tooth that is too damaged by decay or has been knocked out and is not savable. Implants use a titanium screw-like fixture and a specialized implant crown to restore the empty space. A bridge uses 3 or more fused dental crowns to restore the vacant spot. Both are effective dental procedures that will restore your bite to normal function and improve the aesthetics of your smile.
