Some Things To Keep In Mind
While you’re on your way to see us, here are some pointers for dealing with your dental emergency before you get to our office.
Chipped or Cracked Teeth
Rinse your mouth with warm water immediately. If you have any swelling, hold a cold compress to your face.
Severe Tooth Pain
Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean away any food or bacteria. If there is anything stuck between your teeth, use floss to remove it. You can take a pain reliever to alleviate the tooth pain, but don’t apply aspirin directly onto the aching tooth or gums.
Knocked-Out Adult Tooth
Keep the tooth moist by either placing it in a cup of milk or holding it in between your cheek and gums. Whenever you pick up the tooth, hold it by the top/crown part and not the root. It’s crucial to see a dentist right away to save the tooth.

If you’re a more nervous patient, we offer relaxing sedation options to keep you at ease during your treatment.
