It’s an understood phenomenon that dental emergencies happen when you least expect them. We understand how excruciating dental pain can be and will do what we can to alleviate your discomfort as soon as possible. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, don’t wait to see if it goes away. Please call our practice as soon as possible so that we can arrange to work you into our schedule.

Common Dental Emergencies

  • Toothache – Toothaches occur for a variety of reasons. It’s important to see our dentist as soon as possible to rule out decay or infection as the cause.
  • Broken, Chipped or Cracked Tooth – Rinse out the mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the face to reduce swelling. Call us right away for an appointment. If the tooth was broken or chipped, bring any tooth fragments with you.
  • Avulsed (Knocked-Out Tooth) – If a tooth is knocked out of the mouth, hold it by the crown and gently place it back into its socket (if possible). Call our office immediately. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, hold it under your tongue until you can see the dentist.
  • Tongue or Cheek Bite – Rinse the mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the face to reduce swelling. Call our office or visit the ER for immediate medical attention.

Contact Us After Hours

We provide an answering service where patients can expect us to get back in touch with them in a timely manner. In most cases, we will recommend what to do before we arrange to see you the next day, but in severe circumstances, we can meet patients in our office.
