How should I handle a dental emergency?
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, call or visit the office as soon as possible. Getting proper treatment within 30 minutes of your emergency could make all the difference in saving your tooth.
If you’ve knocked out your tooth, there are some measures you can take before seeing the team that could make it more likely that they can save your tooth.
First, try to find your tooth. If you can locate it, pick it up by the crown (the top part), being careful to not touch the roots. Rinse the tooth and your mouth with warm water, and gently try to reinsert the tooth back into its socket. If you’re able to get it back in, gently bite down to keep it in place until you can see the team.
If you’re unable to get it back in the socket, keep it in the side of your mouth or in a glass of milk or saliva. This helps prevent the roots from drying out.
For all of your dental emergencies, call the office immediately or pay a visit to the clinic.
