What is a Dental Emergency?
Contact our office as soon as possible if you are experiencing a dental emergency. The following conditions qualify as dental emergencies and should normally be treated immediately.
- Lost Fillings or Crowns
Attempt to find any lost or broken fillings or crowns. Rinse it and try to place it back on your tooth. Contact our office to arrange an appointment to have it repaired as soon as possible.
- Chipped or Broken Teeth
If a tooth has been broken or chipped, it's possible that your dentist will be able to reattach it. Try to find the missing piece and bring it with you to your appointment. Make sure you call our office immediately to schedule an appointment, whether you find the piece or not.
- Knocked-Out Teeth
If you are successful in locating a tooth that has been knocked out, rinse it and re-insert it into your tooth socket. Place the tooth, then bite down gently on it. If the tooth cannot be replaced into the socket, place it in a glass of milk or hold it in your mouth to keep it moist until you arrive at our office.
Ensure you come to our office as soon as possible. If you are able to, please call ahead. The sooner you can be treated after a tooth as been knocked out, the better chance your dentist will have of saving your teeth.
- Severe Swelling
If you see moderate to severe swelling in your mouth, neck, or face areas and are having trouble swallowing or breathing, please call our office immediately. Our dentists will examine the swelling to identify the cause, then plan treatment.
