Question: What counts as a dental emergency?

Answer: A dental emergency is any damage to the teeth or gums that is not life threatening. If you feel the problem is life threatening, then call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room. Otherwise, give us a call and we can find the perfect time to see you and treat the issue.

Question: What should I do before seeing the dentist?

Answer: Often, you can take steps to alleviate discomfort before seeing the dentist. If you chip a tooth, you can use gauze to stem bleeding and then apply a cold compress to the side of the face to ease swelling. You can also do this if you knock out a tooth (however, please place the tooth in a glass of milk and bring it with you to the office).
