You should call our team for an emergency appointment if you’re experiencing:
- Severe tooth ache
- Swelling in the jaw
- A cracked or broken tooth
- Sore or swollen gums
- Signs of infection
- Lost or loose fillings
- A cracked or broken restoration
- Significant bleeding
- An oral injury
Since oral health is closely tied to your overall health, it’s important to get treatment for dental emergencies before infections can spread to other areas of the head and body. Dr. Kandar can take a preventive approach and make sure you get the comprehensive and restorative treatment you need for the long term.
When you contact our team for an emergency appointment, we’ll ask some questions about the symptoms you’re having and any relevant dental history. This helps us plan ahead in case of any emergency treatments you may need. Once you arrive, Dr. Kandar will assess your mouth and any areas of concern to learn about possible causes. We may perform x-rays or other scans to assess the underlying tissues. If you need an emergency procedure like a root canal or tooth extraction, we can perform these while taking every step to ensure you’re comfortable, informed, and confident in your treatment plan for restorations going forward.
Dr. Kandar will create a customized treatment plan for your oral health once we have a complete picture of your symptoms and needs. We offer a variety of restorative treatments and preventive care to help you get the most out of your oral health, so our team can work with you to achieve a healthy smile with the best in quality, customized care in the San Francisco area.
It’s essential to get emergency treatment when you’re experiencing pain, swelling, or injury. To meet with Dr. Kandar and our team at the soonest available time, call our San Francisco office.
