Find Relief From Your Dental Problems

Our team can handle practically any emergency using our skills and experience. No matter what situation brings you here, we can help. Our dentists have extensive experience in eliminating our patients’ pain and getting their smiles back on track to looking great again. Here are a few treatments we use to treat dental disasters:

  • Tooth-colored filling to stop the pain of a cavity
  • Root canal to remove infection and save your tooth from extraction
  • Tooth extraction if your tooth is too badly damaged to save with a crown, root canal, or other treatment
  • Wisdom teeth removal if you’re in pain due to impaction or other issues
  • TMJ treatment to relieve your aching jaw caused by TMJ dysfunction

Here are steps you can take until you can be seen in our office for some common dental emergencies:

  • Toothache – It’s important to call us ASAP if you have a toothache, as it could be a sign of something serious. Rinse your mouth out with warm water, then apply ice to your cheek. You can take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help with discomfort and swelling.
  • Loose Tooth – Try to keep from wiggling the tooth to prevent it from becoming more loose. You can use ibuprofen or acetaminophen to help reduce pain while you’re waiting to be seen.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth – Being careful not to touch the roots of the tooth, retrieve the tooth by the crown (white part) and place it in a container of milk or saliva. Bring it with you to your appointment. Try to see us ASAP, ideally within 30 minutes.
  • Broken or Loose Dental Appliance – If your appliance has come off, try to reattach it using dental cement or even a little bit of toothpaste. You can use dental wax to cover any wires or edges that may irritate the inside of your mouth.
