When You Need Urgent Dental Care

Many patients wonder what types of dental issues are considered true dental emergencies. At Family Dentistry of Walnut Creek, your oral health and comfort are our top priority, so we accommodate you as soon as we can for any issue that is causing you discomfort or putting the health of your mouth in immediate jeopardy. 

This includes dental problems such as:

  • Loose, shifted, or knocked-out teeth
  • Teeth that have broken, chipped, or fractured
  • Abscesses
  • Severe discomfort or numbness in a tooth, either in the crown or beneath the surface
  • Intense discomfort or swelling in your jaw
  • The need for emergency dental extractions
  • Dental restorations that have broken or fallen out


We understand how uncomfortable a toothache can be and how it can impact your daily life. That’s why we recommend visiting our office as soon as possible to accurately diagnose the cause of your toothache. Our friendly and experienced team is here to provide a comprehensive assessment using the latest dental technology to determine the root of your discomfort and come up with a treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Broken Teeth

Breaking a tooth can be a stressful situation, and it can happen when you least expect it! These fractures can occur as the result of facial trauma when participating in physical activities or even due to frequent clenching and grinding. We believe that time is of the essence when dealing with a broken tooth, and prompt care can preserve your health and effectively eliminate discomfort. If you experience a broken tooth, it’s important to schedule an appointment with our team as soon as possible to ensure proper treatment.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Losing an adult tooth can be an alarming experience, whether it’s due to an accident, sports injury, or other trauma. At our dental practice, we understand the urgency of the situation and are here to help you through it. If you’ve recently knocked out a tooth, it’s important to act quickly.

Try to locate the tooth and bring it with you to our office as soon as possible. Depending on the condition of the tooth and how soon you get here, we may still be able to save the tooth and place it back into its socket. If you find yourself in this situation, remain calm and follow these steps:

  • Before proceeding, make sure there are no other serious injuries sustained to the tooth or gum tissue.
  • Pick up the tooth by the crown and try to avoid contact with the roots.
  • Rinse the tooth with water.
  • Attempt to place the tooth back into its socket. If you’re unable to do so, submerge it in a cup of milk or saliva instead.
  • Apply gauze to control any bleeding.
  • Call our office for an emergency appointment as soon as possible.
