If you have lost a permanent adult tooth, your situation is considered a dental emergency. Whether it has been knocked out during an accident or fallen out on its own, we need to see you right away. The faster you get to our office, the more likely it is that we will be able to save your tooth. Call us immediately if a permanent adult tooth has come out of your mouth. Until you get to our office, take care to protect the tooth. Do not touch the root of the tooth. If at all possible, try to place the tooth back into its original socket. This should help the tooth stay healthy until you can be seen.
If you have a tooth that is broken or otherwise severely damaged, please contact us right away. Until you can be seen at our office, please protect any portion of the tooth that may have come out of your mouth. If needed, take acetaminophen for the pain. This situation is considered an emergency and should be handled with expediency. The sooner you reach our office, the sooner we can relieve your pain and restore your tooth.
If you have experienced tissue damage, we want to help. If your tongue, gum, cheek, or lip is bleeding, first try to stem the blood flow. The bleeding should stop within about 20 minutes. If it doesn’t, or if you are bleeding profusely, please visit the emergency room right away. Once the bleeding has stopped, please call our office to schedule an emergency appointment so that we can assess the situation. Don’t wait — quickness is often key to successful treatment.
Remember — significant dental pain is always an emergency. If you need help, please contact us quickly so that we can alleviate your discomfort and help you get the treatment you need. Our team will work hard to see you the same day you call. We are here to help!
