Emergency Dental Care
Is This a Dental Emergency?
Are you experiencing, or have you experienced, any of the following?
These may indicate a dental emergency, and you should call us right away.
Keep these numbers posted, so they are readily available when you need them!
What Should I Do?
A mild toothache may be relieved with brushing, flossing, or rinsing your mouth with warm water. If you notice swelling in your mouth or gums, fever, or other symptoms of illness, you may require medical assistance. Call us immediately.
With or without pain, a broken or cracked tooth can open the door to more serious problems. Gently rinse your mouth with warm water, and call us to evaluate the tooth.
Trauma and Lost Teeth
If your tooth has been knocked out, save the tooth! Rinse it in warm water (no scrubbing!) and try to replace the tooth in the gum. Unable to replace it? Put the tooth in a container of milk and call us right away. Don’t forget to bring it with you to your appointment!
Bit Your Tongue?
In most cases, if you bite your tongue, cheek, or lip, it will bleed, but will not require emergency treatment. If bleeding does not stop, call us and be prepared to seek urgent care.
