Emergency dental problems such as toothaches or injuries to the teeth or gums, can be serious and should not be ignored. Ignoring an injury to the teeth or gums often allows the condition to worsen and can sometimes become permanent.

What to Do:

Toothache

Thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it out. Then gently use dental floss or to clean out any food left between your teeth. Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. Contact your dentist if the pain continues.

Broken or Chipped Tooth

Save any of the pieces. Rinse your mouth with warm water. Use cold compresses on the area to keep any swelling down. It's important to call us immediately and we can often see you the same day.

Knocked Out Tooth

Hold the tooth by the crown (the normally visible end) and wash off the root of the tooth in water if it’s dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket. If that isn’t possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk and get to the dentist as quickly as possible. Remember to bring the tooth with you!

Objects Caught Between Teeth

First attempt to gently remove the object with dental floss. Do not use a sharp object to remove anything stuck between your teeth, it can easily lead to further injury. If you can’t dislodge the object using dental floss, call us. We have special instruments that can be used to dislodge the object with damaging your teeth or surrounding gums.

Moved to Santa Monica over five years ago and I've been going to the same dentist in San Diego for over a decade. Finally couldn't do the commute anymore and had to find a local dentist. My wife found Dr. Palmer and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Palmer and her staff are always welcoming and make you feel very comfortable. For a dentist office the vibe is somewhat relaxing and thats saying something. Definitely recommend her. And you can netflix while you're getting your teeth cleaned so what more could you ask for.

Dr. Palmer is great! She gives you the information you need to know and she has a great bedside manner. I'm a person who hates the dentist and I'm pretty sensitive to mouth pain, but she makes me feel calm and I appreciate that

Great visit. The office is nicely decorated. Staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Palmer was knowledgeable, gentle and explained my dental needs. There was a nice view from the dental chair which helped me relax as I am sometimes anxious at the dental office.

I had a lovely first experience with Dr. Palmer from start to finish. She is so friendly and approachable; she finds a way to be relatable to anyone she is taking care of. I went in for a simple cleaning and exam, but will be returning in a few weeks for a small follow-up procedure. I've been very fortunate to have few dental issues in my lifetime, but Dr. Palmer clearly explained everything to me, including advice about how to improve my dental well being moving forward. The facility was very comfortable and chic and the staff friendly and helpful as well. I would strongly recommend this practice! Looking forward coming back here year after year. Update: I went back a week later for my fillings appt. I was in and out of the office within an hour, and she worked on 3 fillings while I watched TV and listen to music the whole time. I am very thankful to have found Dr. Palmer and her team at Meridien Dental.
