Time, as they say, is extremely important during an emergency and can often be the difference between saving and replacing a tooth.

We want you to know that you don’t have to fight this alone, and that our team is at the ready for a dental emergency.
What Are Some Common Dental Emergencies?
Not all injuries to your mouth would fall under the “Emergency” category. For instance, a toothache that doesn’t seem to go away may be the sign of a dental emergency or it could be intense tooth sensitivity that you’re experiencing, therefore needing a root canal.
Below is a list of the most common dental emergencies we see:
- Lost tooth
- Moderate-to-severe toothaches
- Broken/cracked tooth
- Something between teeth that can’t be removed
- Lip bleeding
- Tongue bleeding
- Fractured jaw
These are usually the emergencies we treat. Any one of them can cause massive amounts of trauma to the mouth and your psyche. There’s only so much you can do at home until you see us at the office. In the case of a lost tooth, there are simple home remedies you can do to keep the tooth protected, like keeping the tooth in a glass of milk. It’s important to keep that same tooth so we can try and attach it back.
When the going gets tough, the tough truly do get going. We’re the toughest office crew, and we’re here to handle your dental emergencies.
