If you are in need of emergency dental care, please don’t hesitate to call our office.

Dental trauma is an injury to your teeth, gums, mouth, or face that can be potentially serious. Ignoring a dental emergency can increase the risk of permanent damage. For all dental emergencies, it is important to contact our office as soon as the injury occurs. We can help.

Here are basic guidelines for some common dental emergencies:

Knocked-out tooth: rinse the tooth gently and put it back into the socket if safe to do so. Otherwise, immerse the tooth in a cup of milk or warm water with a pinch of salt. Contact our office immediately.

Chipped or cracked tooth: Save any pieces possible. Rinse your mouth gently with warm water. Apply cold compresses for swelling and pain, as needed. Contact our office as soon as possible.

Lost crown: If a dental crown becomes loose or falls off the tooth, contact us immediately for a replacement. Leaving the tooth uncrowned can lead to further tooth damage.

Soft tissue injuries: For injuries causing bleeding in the mouth or gums, rinse your mouth carefully. Hold damp gauze or a dampened tea bag on the site for 15 minutes. If the bleeding still continues, contact us.

If you encounter a dental emergency, always contact our dental office as soon as possible. We can provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to care for your mouth or may ask you to come into the office. If you have any additional dental emergency questions, be sure to contact us.
