We’re here to help you when oral accidents happen. Don’t stress! We’ve got your back. Dental emergencies can occur at anytime to anyone. So, knowing a few basic things to address a dental emergency can save a knocked out tooth or many other kinds of oral emergencies.
Because of their very nature, oral accidents can be somewhat disconcerting. However, keeping your cool can only help calm the person that is the victim of an oral emergency.
The first thing to realize is that it is important to get ahold of our team as soon as you can. Our Smile Dr. will ensure that you will receive the instruction and prompt care you need. We recommend keeping a copy of our business card in your wallet, purse, or phone case to allow prompt response to any dental emergency. We can guide you as to what to do, and whether the emergency warrants immediate assistance from a dentist or hospital emergency room, or if there are remedies you can conduct on your own. Dental emergencies often require a mix of both, so be sure to call our office right away!
