Reasons You May Need Emergency Dental Care

If you are having any amount of dental or oral pain, call our office right away! Not all instances may need emergency dental care right away, but we will still treat you as soon as possible. Some of the reasons you may need emergency dental care include:

Bitten Lip or Tongue

Clean the area gently with a cold cloth and apply a cold compress to the outside of the area. If the bleeding does not stop, visit your hospital emergency room. You can call our office with further questions.

Broken Tooth

Clean the area by rinsing your mouth gently with warm water. Use cold compresses to keep swelling down. Salvage what pieces you can, and call our office to schedule an appointment.

Knocked Out Tooth

Hold the tooth carefully by the crown and rinse it gently. If possible, hold the tooth in its proper socket. If you are unable to do so, place the tooth in a cup or bag of milk and contact our office right away!

Object Caught Between Teeth

If you cannot remove the object or piece of food with dental floss, do not resort to a sharp instrument or tool. Call our office to schedule a visit where we can safely remove the object for you.


Toothache may be a warning sign of infection or deep decay. Rinse the mouth with warm water, use dental floss, and brush carefully. You can take an over-the-counter pain reliever, but do not apply it directly to the gums.
