What to Do in a Dental Emergency
If a dental emergency happens, we strongly encourage you to call us right away so that we can guide you on any steps you should take before you get to our office. For a toothache, gently brush and/or floss the tooth to remove any debris and then rinse with warm salt water. If your dental crown falls off or your permanent tooth is knocked out, try putting it back over your tooth or in its socket. Keep it in place by biting down on gauze on your way to your emergency visit. For other dental emergencies, please call our office for instruction!
