At Gentle Dental Care, we know that emergencies come at inconvenient times. We are your go-to dentist for unexpected care. We will always do our best to get you in as quickly as possible – especially when you are experiencing a dental emergency.
What To Do During A Dental Emergency
Trauma can be painful, especially when it affects your mouth. It is distracting and confusing and often requires immediate attention. When you experience oral trauma, we want you to be confident that Gentle Dental Care can help you feel better with our experienced team and gentle touch.
Losing a Tooth
If one of your natural teeth is knocked out or falls out, it is important to call us right away. Try to find your tooth, but do not touch the root. Using water, you may gently rinse it and place it back in the socket or you can hold the tooth in your cheek. If this makes you uncomfortable, you can also place the tooth in a glass of milk.
Broken or Fractured Tooth
When you experience an injury that fractures or breaks a tooth, internal damage may be sustained, and immediate treatment will be required. If this happens, call Gentle Dental Care right away. While you wait, you may rinse your mouth with warm water and use a cold compress to reduce any swelling that may occur.
Oral pain may be a sign of an underlying health issue and it should not be ignored. Infection, damage, disease, and other issues may cause oral pain. To avoid further risk, call Gentle Dental Care to get an appointment set up.
Damage or Loss of Restorations
Losing or damaging a filling, crown, or other restoration may lead to re-injury. To avoid possible complications, call Gentle Dental Care to set up an appointment as soon as possible.
