Frequently Asked Questions
Can a broken or knocked out tooth be saved?
Yes, it’s possible that a broken or knocked out tooth can be saved if you receive dental treatment in time. If you’ve broken or lost a tooth, bring the tooth to our office. You can place a lost tooth back in the socket or tuck it between your gums and your check. If you are not comfortable putting the tooth in your mouth, you can put it in a container of milk.
What can I do if I have a bad toothache?
If you have a painful toothache, you may find relief with over-the-counter pain medication. A cool or warm compress near the sore area may also help. Call our office or seek medical attention if you are bleeding or if you experience severe swelling or difficulty swallowing.
When should I go to the emergency room or get emergency medical care?
Seek emergency medical care if you are bleeding heavily, suspect you have broken a bone or can’t open or close your mouth, experience severe swelling or are having difficulty breathing or swallowing.
