Treating Dental Emergencies

Our dental care team provides comprehensive dental care to resolve most dental emergencies. Seeking treatment for any type of damage to the teeth or gums is important for the stability of your long-term oral health. 

Chipped or cracked tooth

If a tooth becomes chipped or cracked, repairing the damaged tooth structure in a timely manner will prevent further deterioration and potential decay. Contact us in the event of tooth damage so that we can work with you to coordinate appropriate treatment.

If there is associated pain, using a cold compress on the outside of the cheek can minimize discomfort. Please alert us to your pain, as it can indicate a more complex problem with the tooth.

Treatment for chipped or cracked teeth can include tooth bonding or a dental crown. These treatments will be recommended based on the location and severity of the damage. Both will improve the integrity of the tooth and help prevent further damage. 

Knocked out tooth

If a tooth is knocked out, immediate dental care is essential for minimizing the impact. If possible, locate the tooth and place it under the tongue or in a glass of milk to keep it in a moist environment. It can be placed back into the socket if this does not disturb an exposed root or cause pain. We will likely see you that day and provide treatment to re-attach the tooth or to address damage and discuss tooth replacement options. 

Sudden Tooth Pain

If you experience a sudden toothache or pain in or around a tooth, contact our office to discuss the situation and get care advice. Tooth pain or a sudden toothache can indicate a range of potential problems, from infection to an abscess under the gums. Our dental care team is equipped to diagnose and treat your dental health concerns and help you restore oral health and wellness. 

Broken Dental Restoration

If you have a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture that has become damaged or dislodged, contact our office for advice on managing the concern before coming in for a visit. We can repair or replace a dental restoration to prevent the development of additional dental problems. Prompt attention to this type of dental problem is important for your long-term dental health.
