We understand that emergencies can be stressful and that anyone can suffer from a dental emergency. Fortunately, if you know how to respond to an emergency, the unpleasant experience may be easier to cope with.

For example, if a tooth falls out in one piece, please contact us as soon as possible. If you’re able to visit our team within an hour, we may be able to restore your teeth. We also recommend putting your tooth in a glass of milk or salt water so the roots don’t die. Similarly, if your tooth chips or breaks, try to gather as many pieces as you can. You should also place these pieces in a cup of water or glass of milk. However, please don’t handle your tooth’s root.

If a filling falls out, or if you lose a crown, please contact our team as soon as possible. Similarly, if you have a sore or an abscess, we recommend contacting us. You should also consider visiting our team if a tooth or your jaw is injured.

Finally, please be aware that a toothache could be an emergency—especially if your tooth is extremely painful. Furthermore, if your toothache lasts for more than a day, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us. We also recommend contacting us if your toothache is severe. In the meantime, rinse your mouth with salt water or try painkillers.
