Emergency Dental Services

  • Cracked tooth repair – Make sure to save any pieces of your chipped or broken tooth and rinse your mouth using warm water. If there’s any bleeding, use gauze on the affect tooth until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or lip near the affected tooth to keep swelling down and relieve pain. And contact us as soon as possible.
  • Treatment for severe toothaches – thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water. If your mouth is swollen, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek. Don’t put aspirin or any other painkiller against your gums because it may damage the gum tissue.
  • Sore gum relief – Injuries to the soft tissue (gums, tongue, cheeks or lips) can result in bleeding. To limit the bleeding, rinse with a mild salt-water solution. Use a moistened piece of gauze to apply pressure to the affected area. Use a cold compress if you need to relieve pain. And give us a call right away.
  • Lost or loose crown – If your crown has fallen out, contact us as soon as possible. Try to make sure you save the crown if possible and bring it with you to your appointment.
  • Knocked-out permanent tooth – Save the tooth and hold it by the crown (the top portion) and not by the root. Rinse the tooth gently but be careful not to clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Contact us immediately.
  • Loose or lost filling – Contact us soon as possible. As a temporary measure, you can use a piece of sugarless gum to fill the cavity. Note: make sure it’s sugarless gum. Sugar-filled gum will cause pain.
  • Broken braces or wires – If a wire breaks and pokes the inside of your mouth or gums, try covering the end with orthodontic wax or a piece of gauze. Never try to the cut the exposed wire yourself. And contact us as soon as possible.
