Most Common Dental Emergencies
Knocked Out Tooth
Rinse your tooth gently with water and try putting it back in the socket it came from. If you're unable to, store your tooth in a bag of milk or water until we can determine if reattachment is possible.
Rinse your tooth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the affected area. This will help you control swelling.
Broken Temporary Crown
Try reattaching your temporary using a small dab of toothpaste or denture adhesive, then schedule a time for us to professionally reattach it.
Before giving us a call, rinse your mouth and floss around the tooth to see if you can remove any debris that might be causing your discomfort. If your pain persists, give us a call.
Contact Us to Begin Treatment
For other emergencies, like a broken jaw or a cut that won't stop bleeding, you may need to visit your nearest emergency room instead of visiting our office. For precise instructions, don't hesitate to give us a call.
