Emergency Dentistry FAQs
How can I prepare for a dental emergency?
We recommend adding our phone number into your contacts so that you can quickly call us in the event of an emergency. We also suggest keeping a few dental-related items in your at-home emergency kit, such as gauze, a container to hold a knocked-out tooth, and salt for warm saltwater rinses.
If my tooth comes out, can my dentist put it back in?
If you still have your tooth, there is a chance we can put it back in. However, it depends on the health of your tooth and your specific situation. If your tooth gets knocked out, hold it by the crown and rinse it off. If you can, we recommend putting it back into the socket and biting down on a piece of gauze to keep it in place. If you can’t put it back in, put it into a cup of milk and transport it with you to our office.
What treatment options are there for a cracked tooth?
If you have a cracked tooth, there are a variety of options to restore it. Some of the treatment options include bonding the cracked tooth with a composite resin or fabricating a custom-made dental crown to go over the tooth for additional strength and protection.
