Frequently Asked Questions

If you knock out a tooth, try to handle it by the crown (the part that’s visible in the mouth) and avoid touching the root. If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it with milk or water. Attempt to reinsert it into the socket if possible. If not, keep the tooth moist by placing it in a container of milk or your saliva. Contact us immediately, as prompt treatment within 1 hour can increase the chances of saving the tooth.

For temporary relief from a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between your teeth. If your mouth is swollen, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek. Avoid applying heat or aspirin on the aching tooth or gums. Call us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.

Yes, a lost filling or crown can be considered a dental emergency, as it may lead to pain or further damage to the tooth if not treated promptly. Protect the tooth with over-the-counter dental cement or sugar-free gum if you can’t replace the crown temporarily. Avoid using super glue. Contact us immediately for further instructions and to schedule a repair.

An abscessed tooth is a serious infection that can spread to other parts of the body if not treated. Symptoms include severe toothache, fever, sensitivity to hot and cold, and swelling. If you suspect you have an abscess, rinse your mouth with mild saltwater several times to reduce pain and draw the pus toward the surface. It’s crucial to get immediate dental care, so contact us right away.

If you’re experiencing severe pain, bleeding, swelling, or have lost a tooth or filling, these are signs of a dental emergency. Any dental issue that requires immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered an emergency. If you’re unsure, it’s best to contact us immediately for advice.

The cost of emergency dental services can vary depending on the nature and severity of the emergency. However, addressing a dental emergency promptly can often save time and money in the long run by preventing more serious complications. We aim to provide affordable, high-quality emergency care and can discuss payment options with you.
