Dental Emergency

Same-Day Appointment

ASAP!  That’s when you want to be seen when you’re in distress, whether for toothache relief, a broken tooth, an abscess, or any number of dental disorders.

We are here to help.   

Dental Emergencies

  • A broken tooth or missing filling.

  • Advanced tooth decay.

  • Infected or abscessed tooth.

  • Dry Socket (a painful condition after extraction).

  • Need for a root canal.


What Can You Do?

Some simple and effective actions include:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water.

  • Don’t apply aspirin to the area, as aspirin may damage your gums.

  • Cap a lost filling with a piece of sugarless gum until you reach the dentist.

  • Gently apply gauze to stop any bleeding.

  • Apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth to reduce swelling and pain.

  • If your tooth has been knocked out, rinse it gently in cold water, call your dentist immediately and follow your dentist’s instructions.

  • The best chance of successfully saving the tooth is to be seen within 1 hour.

  • For pain, take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as Tylenol or Advil.  Do not exceed recommended doses!

  • Never use a pin or sharp object to remove items caught between your teeth
