What You Should Do in an Emergency

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, there are a few things you should do depending on what type of problem has occurred. Here’s a breakdown of a few common issues we see often:

For broken bridges or veneers: Locate the broken restoration so that we may be able to reapply it to your smile. You can gently clean it with milk or saliva. If a crown has fallen out, put it back into your mouth in place over the tooth. Contact us straight away.

For a tooth that has been knocked-out: Typically, we see this type of injury in children who may have been rough-housing or playing a sport. When an impact has made the tooth fall out, rinse the tooth with milk or saliva and place it back into the socket. Please be careful to not touch the tooth roots, which are very delicate. Then, contact us.

For an infected tooth or toothache: Apply a cold compress to the outside of the cheek near the area that hurts, which may help reduce pain and inflammation. You may also take an over-the-counter pain pill as well as rinse your mouth with warm saltwater. Next, give us a call.

We look forward to meeting you!
