We offer emergency dental care for anyone that needs it. No one needs to go another minute when they are in pain. Call us now if you need help right away.
The sooner you can get help with a dental emergency the better. Teeth that have been knocked out of your mouth, for example, need to be treated in less than 2 hours to be salvaged.
There are also risks of small irritations becoming worse or progressing to more severe conditions. Infections can spread quickly.
The bottom line is, if you have a dental emergency, seek help immediately.
What To Do During a Dental Emergency
The best thing to do in a dental emergency is to remain calm. The pain or discomfort may feel unbearable, but even when it is, it’s best to calm down and focus on getting the right help as soon as possible.
If a tooth has been lost, you can place it in milk to preserve it until you get to our office for assistance.
If you are bleeding, find cotton balls or gauze to help slow or stop the blood flow. Using a cold compress or ice pack can also help alleviate the pain or discomfort.
