Time is of the essence
It happens to the best of us. If you have a toothache, swelling, a chipped tooth, maybe a filling came out or something else, we will do our best to fit you in as soon as possible and get you out of pain ASAP. No matter the emergency, we will take care of you!
Common dental emergencies & what to do
Before visiting us, there are steps you can take to minimize discomfort and relieve pain:
If you're experiencing extreme pain, contact us. In the meantime, take over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce the pain.
Mouth swelling is often due to an infection in your teeth or gums. Before your appointment, put a cold compress on your cheek outside the swollen area to reduce pain.
Knocked out teeth
You can save your knocked out tooth if protected properly. First, locate the tooth that has been knocked out and clean it. Place the tooth in a container of milk to keep it moist. If you're in pain, take a pain reliever and use a cold compress on your cheek, before visiting us.
Crowns protect the area of your tooth where a cavity was removed. Prior to getting the crown re-cemented into place, chew a piece of sugar-free gum and use it to stick the crown back over your tooth so nothing gets inside and causes more problems.
Chipped teeth can be treated similar to knocked out teeth. Find the missing piece and place it in a container of milk until you visit us for your emergency appointment. If the missing portion cannot be found, we will provide you with other repair solutions.
