Benefits of Emergency Dentistry
Offering emergency dental care allows us to provide many benefits for the community, including:
Don’t Suffer From Emergency Dental Problems
Dental emergencies can be incredibly stressful. You are dealing with pain and unusual situations in your mouth. Maybe your tooth is loose, and you don’t know why. Or perhaps your gums are bleeding, and you are concerned. Or maybe you experienced a dental injury and knocked out a tooth.
You are worried about whether the problem can wait until you get an appointment. You don’t want to disturb your dentist in the middle of the night. But you need to heal and want expert advice.
After all, you don’t know how long the bleeding will last and if it’s dangerous. You don’t know if you should try to avoid certain foods if you have a loose tooth. You don’t want your infection to get worse.
New Leaf Rohnert Park can help with all of these concerns.

Because we explicitly offer emergency dental services, we don’t care when you call us. Call us in the middle of the night, on the weekend, or during a holiday. We would rather your mouth be healthy than get an extra hour or two of sleep. We can let you know if you have a dental emergency and when you need to see us. Maybe it can wait until morning. Maybe we’ll tell you to head to our office right away. You don’t have to guess, as we are experts and will let you know.

What is considered a dental emergency?
It is common to wonder what constitutes a dental emergency. When in doubt, give us a call. We will let you know if the issue can wait for an appointment or requires emergency care. Some examples of situations that might require emergency care include loose, cracked, broken, infected, or abscessed teeth. Other situations include teeth getting knocked out, severe tooth pain, and bleeding in the mouth.
- Toothache or severe tooth pain.
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.
- Knocked-out tooth.
- Loose or dislodged dental restorations, such as crowns or fillings.
- Abscess or infection causing swelling and pain.
- Bleeding from the gums, tongue, or other soft tissues in the mouth.
- Injuries to the jaw or face.
What should I do in case of a dental emergency?
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, it’s important to contact your dentist or an emergency dental clinic as soon as possible. They can provide guidance on how to manage your situation until you can be seen. In the meantime, here are some steps you can take for common dental emergencies:
- Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater, and use a cold compress on the outside of your cheek to help reduce pain and swelling. Avoid using heat or applying aspirin directly to the tooth or gums.
- Chipped, cracked, or broken tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water, and apply a cold compress to the affected area. Save any broken pieces of tooth and bring them with you to the dentist.
- Knocked-out tooth: Gently rinse the tooth with water without touching the root, and try to place it back in its socket. If that’s not possible, store the tooth in a container of milk or saliva and bring it with you to the dentist.
- Loose or dislodged restorations: If a crown or filling is loose or has fallen out, keep it and bring it with you to the dentist. A temporary dental adhesive can be used to hold a crown in place until you can be seen.
How can I prevent dental emergencies?
While not all dental emergencies can be prevented, there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk:
- Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
- Wear a mouthguard when playing sports or engaging in activities that put your teeth at risk of injury.
- Avoid using your teeth to open packages, remove bottle caps, or perform other tasks that can cause damage.
- Address any ongoing dental issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, to reduce your risk of complications.
