Recognizing A Dental Emergency

If you are in dental pain, it’s a dental emergency. If you are experiencing any of the following situations, please contact our office to schedule an emergency dentistry appointment:

  • A tooth that has come loose, fallen out, or been knocked out
  • A broken or otherwise severely damaged tooth
  • Significant damage to the tongue, cheek, lip, or gums
  • A severe toothache

Please give us a call if you think you need help. We will be able to offer advice and help you get an appointment. Don’t wait – the sooner you reach us, the easier your situation will be to treat.

What To Do In A Dental Emergency

Dental emergencies can happen at any time, so you should have a plan just in case. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a dental emergency:

  • Invest in a first aid kit
  • If a tooth is broken or knocked out, bring the tooth or fragments along with you – we may be able to restore your tooth
  • If you are bleeding, apply gentle pressure with gauze to stop it
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever
  • Use a cold compress to reduce swelling
