Emergency Dental Services

If You Have A Toothache

  • Call the office to schedule an appointment. 
  • If we are open, we will have you come into the office as soon as possible, usually the same day.
  • Digital x-rays, paperless charting and billing
  • Weekday, Evening and Weekend hours available.
  • Emergency service 24 hours.
  • Common Treatments and Procedures
  • If we are not open, call your nearest hospital emergency room.

In the meantime

  • Always rest your head in an elevated position.
  • Try placing an ice pack near the area outside the cheek.
  • Take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Advil) as directed, as long as you are able to take these products. Do not try to place an aspirin directly on the painful tooth/area. This will burn the gum tissue and does not actually help the pain. It would be better to try an over-the-counter pain relieving product, like Anbesol, for example. This type of product is made to be placed onto a painful area in the mouth.

When A Tooth Is Knocked Out Completely

  • Avoid additional trauma to the tooth while handling. DO NOT handle tooth by the root. DO NOT brush or scrub tooth. DO NOT sterilize the tooth.
  • If debris is on tooth, very gently rinse to wash it with water.
  • If possible, re-implant tooth and stabilize by biting down gently on a towel or handkerchief. Do this only if the person is alert and conscious.
  • If unable to re-implant, place the tooth under the tongue (if the person is alert). Next best option is to place the tooth in a cup of cold milk. Last choice would be to place the tooth in a cup of water.
  • Time is very important! Re-implantation within 30 minutes has the highest degree of success rate.
  • Transport immediately to the Dentist. 

When A Tooth Is Knocked Loose (But Still In Socket)

  • A tooth 'hanging down' (upper tooth) or 'raised up' (on a lower tooth): Reposition the tooth in socket, using firm finger pressure. Stabilize by gently biting on towel or handkerchief.
  • A tooth pushed back or pulled forward: Try to reposition the tooth, using finger pressure. If too painful, only stabilize the tooth with a towel or handkerchief.
  • A tooth that appears pushed into the gum- looks short: Do nothing- avoid any repositioning of the tooth.
  • Transport immediately to the Dentist. 

Fractured Tooth

  • If the tooth is totally broken in half, save the broken portion and bring into the dental office as described above.
  • Stabilize the portion of the tooth left in the mouth by biting gently on a towel or handkerchief to control bleeding.
  • Should extreme pain occur, limit contact with other teeth, air or tongue. Pulp nerve could be exposed, which is extremely painful. 
  • Transport patient and tooth fragments immediately to the Dentist.
