A dental emergency often occurs at the most inconvenient time and often when you least expect it. When an emergency strikes, you’re left with severe pain and discomfort and need treatment right away. Our same day appointments allow you to be seen quickly to help stop the discomfort while addressing your emergency. When time is of the essence in an emergency, we will work quickly to treat the problem while preserving your tooth.
Knocked-Out Tooth—A knocked out tooth is one of the most common emergencies we treat. When a permanent tooth is lost due to injury or trauma, it can often be saved with prompt treatment. If you’ve lost a tooth, find the tooth right and try to reinsert it. If that’s not possible, place it in a cup of milk or water to keep it moist, then head to our office immediately.
Broken or Cracked Tooth—Teeth can become broken or cracked for a number of reasons, such as trauma or a weakened tooth has finally given out. If you’ve broken a tooth, find as many pieces as possible and apply ice to the area to reduce pain and swelling. If you’ve cracked a tooth, apply ice as well. Head to our office right away so we can offer the restorative procedure you need to save the health and function of the tooth.
Lost Crown—When you’re undergoing certain restorative procedures, you may have a temporary crown fall out. If your temporary crown falls out, you need to come into our office to have the crown reattached to protect the area from potential damage and infection.
Abscessed Tooth—A tooth infection can quickly progress to an abscess, which is often extremely painful. When left untreated, the infection can spread into the surrounding tissue and even the blood stream. We will identify the cause of the abscess to provide the appropriate treatment to treat the infection and stop the pain.
