If you have a dental emergency, call our office. We will provide the proper treatment to address your dental problem. Common dental emergencies that we can address in our office include: 


You can sometimes relieve a simple toothache by rinsing your mouth to clear debris. Sometimes, a piece of debris lodged between teeth can cause or aggravate a toothache. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain. The dissolving aspirin can harm your gum tissue.

Lost Tooth

If you have knocked out a tooth, try to place the tooth back in its socket while waiting to see your dentist. First, rinse the mouth of any blood or other debris. Then, place a cold cloth or compress on the cheek near the injury. This will reduce swelling.

If you cannot locate the tooth back in its socket, hold the dislocated tooth by the crown – not the root. Next, please place it in a container of saliva and keep it in the solution until you arrive at the emergency room or dentist’s office.

Fractured Tooth

It is best to rinse a fractured tooth with warm water and apply a cold pack or compress. Ibuprofen may help keep down swelling. If you have a minor tooth fracture, a dentist can restore the tooth if the pulp is not severely damaged.

Additionally, if your child’s baby tooth is loosened by an injury or an emerging permanent tooth, have your child bite down on an apple or similar food. In some cases, the tooth will easily separate from the gum.
