What is a dental emergency?
The following conditions are dental emergencies, and should be treated as soon as possible.
- Lost Fillings or Crowns
If you have lost or broken a dental crown or filling, try to locate it, and if possible, rinse it off and put it in a safe place. Call our office straight away to let us know you need an appointment.
- Broken or Chipped Teeth
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, try to locate the missing piece if you can, as your dentist might be able to reattach it. Whether you can find it or not, call our office as soon as you can to get it repaired.
- Knocked Out Teeth
If you have a knocked out tooth, try to find the tooth if you can, remove any debris (but do not rinse it with water) and re-insert it in the socket if possible. Bite down on the tooth gently but firmly. If you can't replace the tooth in the socket, keep it moist by holding it in your mouth, or placing it in a glass of milk, until you can get to our office.
Call our office to let us know you're on your way, and get here as soon as possible. The sooner you get here after the tooth is knocked out, the more likely it is that your dentist will be able to save it.
- Severe Swelling
If you are experiencing severe swelling of the mouth, face or neck, and especially if it causes difficulty swallowing or breathing, please call our office immediately. We will determine what is causing the swelling and the best way to treat it.
