What Do You Do in a Dental Emergency?

Call our office as soon as possible. Most ERs and urgent care centers are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. Our dentist will examine your mouth and take necessary x-rays to find the underlying cause of your pain. She’ll then be able to recommend and discuss your treatment options. The sooner you seek urgent dental care, the better your outcome.

Severe Toothache

  1. Floss between teeth to dislodge any food.
  2. Swish with water.
  3. Take over-the-counter pain relievers as needed.
  4. Call our office for emergency dental care.

Knocked-Out Tooth

  1. Pick up the tooth by the crown (chewing surface).
  2. Gently rinse tooth under water.
  3. Try to place tooth back in socket or submerge tooth in milk.
  4. Call our office for emergency dental care.
  5. Bring your tooth with you to your appointment.
