If you are experiencing a dental emergency, call us immediately, then follow these simple steps to extend the viability of your tooth:

Broken tooth

Rinse with warm water. Apply cold compress.

Cracked tooth

Apply cold compress.

Knocked out tooth

Rinse in cold water, but DO NOT SCRUB IT. Put the tooth back in its socket and hold in place for five minutes. If this cannot be done, put the tooth in a glass of milk or water, or wrap it in a wet cloth.

Toothache

Rinse your mouth with warm water. Gently use dental floss to ensure there is no food or debris caught between teeth. If pain persists, contact your dentist.

When it comes to dental emergencies, the main ingredient to avoiding them is prevention!

This includes simple steps such as:

  • Wear a mouth guard when participating in sports
  • Avoid chewing ice, popcorn kernels or hard candy
  • Use scissors, not teeth, when cutting tape. And the most important preventive measure you can take?
  • See your dentist every six months for cleaning/check-ups
