If you are experiencing a toothache, call us. Severe pain or a toothache can be an indication of a serious dental problem like an abscess. Taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen and placing an ice pack on the area can give you some relief until you see your dentist.
If you have a broken tooth, the sooner you receive treatment the better. Broken teeth can usually be saved. Call us, and we’ll have a dentist see you right away.
It’s important that you act very quickly when a tooth is knocked out –within 10 minutes a tooth has a very good chance of taking root. Call us immediately and if the tooth looks clean, try placing it back in its socket. Alternatively, put the tooth in a container of cold milk while on your way to the office.
If food or another type of particle is lodged between your teeth and can’t be removed with gentle use of floss, see your dentist. Trying to remove it on your own could damage or injure your teeth.
If you suspect that a filling has fallen out, give us a call to discuss your symptoms. In the meantime, you can use a piece of softened sugarless chewing gum to fill the empty space and temporarily protect the tooth.
