At Advanced Dental Arts, we understand that the very nature of an emergency is an inconvenience. As your dedicated family dental healthcare providers, we’re here for you in these stressful times. Please call our office immediately to request an emergency dental care visit if you experience a severe toothache, knock out a tooth, badly damage your teeth, or find yourself in another precarious dental situation. We do our very best to see emergency cases immediately. If you experience intense bleeding or your emergency extends beyond dental care, please go to the nearest emergency room for assistance.

Some situations can be remedied or improved by following a few simple tips. While these suggestions do not solve all problems, they offer first-aid care until you can come to our office or your local emergency room.

Temporary Crown Falls Out

If your temporary falls out and you still have it, dry your natural tooth, apply a small dab of toothpaste to the temporary and reattach it. You may also use dental wax or temporary adhesive, available at most pharmacies. Please call our dental office so that we can professionally reattach your temporary as soon as possible.

Knocked Out Tooth

Rinse the tooth gently under water to remove debris. Place the tooth into the socket it fell from and hold it in place until you get to our office. Otherwise, put the tooth into a baggie of milk and bring it to us so that we can determine whether reattachment is possible.

Cut/Bitten Tongue or Lip

Thoroughly clean the cut, then hold a cold compress against it. If bleeding does not stop, go to your local emergency room. You may need stitches.

Possibly Broken Jaw

If you think your jaw may be broken, apply a cold compress and proceed to your local emergency room immediately. If you lost or damaged teeth during your injury, please call us, as well.

Severe Toothache

Rinse your mouth and the area around the tooth, then floss around the tooth to make sure that debris is not causing the pain. Call our office for an appointment if the pain persists, or go to the nearest emergency room.

Something Caught Between Teeth

Tie a knot in dental floss and gently remove the debris, and be sure that you don’t cut your gums with the floss. Do not use a sharp instrument to dislodge the debris. If floss doesn’t help, call our office for an appointment.
