We understand that you would normally see your regular dentist if you have a painful toothache, if your child has broken a tooth, or if you have a crown or bridge that is giving you problems.
We are here to help you if you need to see a dentist late at night, during the weekend or if your regular dentist is unavailable
We have emergency dentists who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If your tooth is Broken or Knocked Out:
An injured tooth may begin to die within 15 to 30 minutes after trauma. This is the reason it is important to see a dentist right away. We have a few tips to help you in case you have a dental accident, which may make a difference in saving a tooth versus losing a tooth.
If you break a tooth:
Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce any swelling, then see a dentist right away. If you can find the broken part of your tooth, be sure to take it with you.
If your tooth is knocked out:
Do not touch the root of the tooth, if possible. Hold the tooth by the top and do not rinse it or remove any attached tissue. If you can, carefully re-insert the tooth into its socket and gently hold it in place. If that's not possible, put it in a cup of milk or hold it between the cheek and gums so it doesn't dry out. See a dentist or call us as soon as possible.
