What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

Call us! A tooth abscess, toothache, pain from a dental crown and/or a chipped or broken tooth needs care and if left untreated, could lead to serious dental problems. The quicker an emergency is dealt with, the more likely you’ll experience positive results. Before calling do the following:

1. Identify your dental emergency

  • Severe swelling in your face, neck or mouth area that is causing you to have difficulty swallowing and/or breathing. A face that appears inflamed or has red or purple bruising.
  • Chipped, broken or knocked out tooth: Try to find the missing tooth and bring it to your appointment. Take the following steps to save and preserve the tooth:
    • Put the tooth in milk.
    • Pack the tooth socket with gauze, a cotton ball or a tea bag.
    • For chipped and broken teeth, rinse and save the pieces, if possible.
  • Lost crown or filling: Locate the crown/filling and rinse it, placing it back on your tooth.

2. Address the pain and swelling by rinsing your mouth with warm water and holding an ice pack to your face.

3. Stay calm by breathing deeply.

4. Call your dentist for advice or to make an appointment.
