When to Visit an Emergency Dentist
Most oral health issues can be diagnosed and treated during your regular biannual dental exam. However, you should consult with a dentist immediately if you have sustained trauma to your mouth or are experiencing severe swelling, pain, or other symptoms which indicate infection.
Knocked Out Tooth
If you lose a permanent tooth, you should contact our office immediately. In order to keep the entire tooth's structure in good condition until your visit, we recommend:
- Placing the tooth back in the socket, if possible
- Keeping it moist in milk or saline water
- Avoid touching the tooth roots
A tooth can typically be re-implanted in its socket if it is not left for too long or badly damaged.
