Emergency Dentistry

Common dental emergencies include any one of the following:

  • Toothache

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Broken restoration or appliance
  • Fever

If your tooth is knocked out completely, clean it with water, avoid touching the root, and try to keep it moist until your emergency visit. In some cases, we can save the tooth!

Preventing dental emergencies begins with regular exams and cleanings. Having your teeth cleaned at least twice per year lowers your dental emergency risk by helping to prevent infections.
