Dental Emergencies

If you face a dental emergency, please give us a call as soon as possible. We are here to assist when your child’s dental health is at risk. If you need urgent treatment after hours, you can call our office, please wait for the prompt to connect you to the On-Call Phone.

Below are tips on dealing with urgent dental situations.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

If your child has knocked out their tooth, try your best to find that tooth. Please be sure to handle the tooth by the crown, not by the root. You can rinse the tooth off but it is critical you do not clean or scrub the tooth. Inspect the tooth for fractures. If the tooth looks intact, try to reinsert it in the socket. Have the patient hold the tooth in place by biting on a gauze or clean cloth. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, transport the tooth in a cup containing the patient’s saliva or milk, not water. If your child’s tooth has been knocked out, contact us as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the lower the likelihood the tooth can be restored.

Knocked Out Baby Tooth

Please contact us as soon as possible but in most cases, no treatment is necessary, as these teeth aren’t permanent.  

Chipped or Fractured Permanent Tooth

If your child has chipped or fractured a permanent tooth, rinse the mouth with water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If you can find the broken tooth piece, bring it with you to your appointment, we will do our best to restore the tooth.

Chipped or Fractured Baby Tooth

Please contact us as soon as possible but in most cases, no treatment is necessary, as these teeth aren’t permanent.
