Trust Your Smile to Our Team of Experts
No matter what your emergency dental need is, our dentists can help. There’s not a problem out there that we haven’t had experience treating. Below are a few types of dental emergencies we see often, along with important steps to take before you arrive at our office:
- Toothache – First rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply an ice pack or cold compress on the outside of your cheek to help with pain and swelling.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – Be careful not to touch the roots of the tooth. Retrieve it by the crown (white part) and place it in a container of salt water, milk, or saliva. Be sure to bring it with you.
- Broken Tooth – Collect any broken pieces of tooth and bring them to your appointment. You can use ice to help reduce swelling and pain.
- Soft Tissue Injury – To stop any bleeding from your lips, cheek, tongue, or gums, apply a piece of gauze or a tea bag. If the bleeding doesn’t stop in a few minutes, go to the nearest emergency room.
- Loose Crown – Try to reattach the crown using a little dental cement or toothpaste applied on the inside surface. If it won’t go back on, be sure to bring it with you.
