Potential Dental Emergencies

  • A tooth that has been knocked out

If you have a tooth that has been knocked out, it is important to try and find the tooth. Once you have found the tooth, rinse it off with water but do not scrub it or remove any tissue that may be attached. If possible, try to reinsert the tooth into the socket. If you are unable to do so, place the tooth in a cup of milk. Then, call us immediately!

  • A cracked tooth

If you have a cracked tooth, it is important to avoid chewing on that side of your mouth and to eat soft foods. You should also rinse your mouth with warm water and salt water several times a day. 

  • A loose tooth

If you have a loose tooth, it is important to avoid chewing on that side of your mouth and to eat soft foods. You should also avoid touching or wiggling the tooth. 

  • An object caught between teeth

If you have an object caught between your teeth, try to remove it with floss. If you are unable to remove the object with floss, contact us  and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

  • Swelling around the jaw

If you have swelling around your jaw, it is important to apply ice to the area for 15-20 minutes every hour. You should also take ibuprofen for pain relief if needed.

Infected Tooth Extractions

Infected teeth are not only painful but can also cause further complications if left untreated. As a result, we ensure that our patients have access to emergency treatments, including infected extractions. While it is not always ideal, in some cases, extraction may be the only solution to alleviate the pain and remove the source of the infection. However, rest assured that our experienced team will provide you with personalized care, ensuring that the process is as comfortable as possible. We use modern techniques and equipment to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
