Frequently Asked Questions
What constitutes a dental emergency?
Each patient is unique and the signs of a dental emergency may appear differently in each patient. As always, if you think you may have a dental emergency, please call to speak with a member of our team.
How can I prepare for a dental emergency?
The most effective way to avoid a dental emergency is to keep up with your routine preventive dental care. Attending a professional cleaning every six months allows our team to accurately monitor your dental health. When playing contact sports, ensure you’re wearing a customized mouthguard to help prevent damaging a tooth.
How can I save my tooth if it’s been knocked out?
If you’re suffering from a cracked or knocked-out tooth, obtain all of the loose pieces that you can. Gently run water over them to rid them of any debris, but be careful not to remove any remaining gum tissue. If possible, place the tooth back into its socket. If you’re unable to do so comfortably, transport the tooth in a small container with milk to our office.
