Do you need a dentist urgently? We can usually see you on the same day if you call our office. New patients are always welcome.
If you’ve lost a tooth or broken a tooth off you have a much better chance of replacing the natural tooth if you get dental care immediately. For lost teeth your chances of successful recover are greater if you can replace the tooth back in its socket. If you can’t replace it in the socket, or for teeth that are broken off, you can keep the tooth moist by putting it between your cheek and gums, or by placing it in a closed container of milk.
If you’ve broken an appliance such as braces, dentures, bridgework or a filling or crown, ensure that there are no pieces in your mouth because they could cause you to choke.
For all dental emergencies you can get temporary relief from pain with over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen.
