How you handle a dental emergency depends on the nature of your oral health problem. If you have a toothache or jaw swelling, we want you to contact our dental office as soon as possible to schedule emergency treatment—typically, the same day.
If your tooth has been knocked out, we want you to collect the pieces and put them in a cup of saliva or warm water to help keep the tooth viable before your appointment. With timely dental care, we can sometimes replant your knocked-out tooth.
For trauma that extends outside your mouth—auto accident or other—we want you to seek medical attention in your location ER first. You can contact a member of our dental team after you have been declared safe. Your overall health is our priority!
