Emergency Dental Care

If you are having a medical emergency call 911.  Allergic responses, dental abscesses, and facial trauma may need stabilizing treatment at a hospital.

If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call our practice as soon as possible. If you need immediate attention after hours, you may call our emergency phone number.

When your dental health is at risk, we will do everything we can to make sure that you're treated as soon as possible. While dental emergencies are rare, they can happen, and it's important to know how to take care of your teeth no matter what. Common dental emergencies include:

  • Broken or cracked tooth/teeth (if not painful, these often can be addressed within several days of the occurence and with little or no change in treatment outcome expected.
  • Broken jaw (this would be best addressed at your hospital or oral surgeon)
  • Permanent tooth knocked out 
    • These are very time sensitive, the tooth must be replaced as quickly as possible.  Do not rinse in water.  It can be stored in saliva (best) or milk and brought immediately to the dental office.  
    • If you can place it immediately back in the socket, it has the best chance of survival.
  • Object caught between teeth
    • Try flossing and rinsing with warm salt water (1/2 tsp salt in 8 oz of water), the salt water often helps significantly
  • Severe toothache
    • Contact immediately to discuss the cause and potential treatment options
