Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

What should I do if I’ve knocked out a tooth?

If you have accidentally knocked out a tooth, it's important to act quickly to increase the chances of saving it. To recover the tooth, handle it by the crown (the top) rather than the root to prevent any further damage. Rinse the tooth with warm water to remove any debris, being careful not to scrub or use any abrasive materials. If possible, try to gently place the tooth back into its socket. Do not force it into place as it may cause additional damage. If you cannot put the tooth back, store it in a container of cold milk to keep it hydrated until you can get to the dentist.For knocked-out teeth, time is of the essence, so contact us immediately to get guidance on how to handle the emergency and ensure that we are prepared for your visit. Remember, in order to save the tooth and avoid the need for prosthetics, the tooth should be replaced and splinted within 1-2 hours.

What should I do if my dental work has fallen out?

If you've lost a piece of dental work, such as a filling or crown, it's important to act quickly to protect your oral health. Call us to schedule an appointment so we can treat it as soon as possible.Losing dental work can expose your teeth to bacteria and lead to further complications. Gently place the dental work in a clean plastic bag or container and bring it with you to your emergency appointment. We understand that losing dental work can be stressful, but rest assured that we'll do everything we can to restore your smile.

What should I do about a severe toothache?

A toothache that lasts for more than two days is a cause for concern. It could be a sign of a tooth infection, which is a serious dental emergency that requires prompt attention. We understand how uncomfortable and distressing tooth pain can be, and we want you to find relief as soon as possible. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, please don't hesitate to contact us. We can address your concerns and promptly schedule an appointment. In the meantime, you can use a cold compress on your cheek, take over-the-counter pain medication, or use a topical product like Orajel to numb the tooth and reduce pain.

What should I do about a chipped, broken or cracked tooth?

If you have a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth, it can be difficult to assess the severity of the damage without a professional oral exam. Leaving it untreated can lead to further complications like infection and cause additional, preventable complications. We are right by your side to help and support you in getting your smile back to optimal health. If you experience any of these issues, please don't hesitate to give us a call, we will schedule an appointment and provide you with a thorough examination and proper guidance to restore and protect your smile and alleviate your pain.

What should I do about a loose tooth?

If you have a loose tooth from a dental injury, get in touch with us and schedule a same-day appointment. Not treating it in time can damage the nerves supporting your tooth, causing the tooth to fall out. So, don’t hesitate to reach out, we are here for you!After scheduling your appointment, try to keep the tooth as stable as possible. Avoid moving the loose tooth with your tongue or fingers. During your appointment, your dentist will attach the tooth to the adjacent teeth with a splint. The splint provides support for the tooth so it can heal and re-attach itself to your gums.
