Dental emergencies, like all emergencies, are the worst! That’s why we offer a same-day emergency policy. Just call and we’ll get you in!

Here are some tips for situations involving tooth loss.

  1. Don’t panic.
  2. Don’t touch the root area of the tooth.
  3. Don’t use alcohol or peroxide to clean the tooth – rinse with water instead.
  4. If you can, place the tooth back in the socket, bite down and hold in place with gauze.
  5. If you can’t, place the tooth in a clean container and cover with whole milk or saliva, and get to the dentist or the ER as quickly as possible!
  6. The first 30 minutes are the most critical to save the tooth.
