How does emergency dentistry work?
The moment you have a dental emergency, call the Relief Dental office right away. We can often accommodate same-day appointments.
What steps should I take if my tooth gets knocked out?
You can play a role in the survival of your tooth if you take quick action. If your tooth gets knocked out, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water. Clean your tooth as well without touching its roots, holding it by the opposite end.
If possible, place your tooth back in its socket where it came out. Then slowly close your mouth and bite down gently. If that’s too painful, then bite down on a piece of gauze until you get to Relief Dental.
If you can’t put your tooth back in its socket, put it in a cup of saliva or place it inside your mouth next to your cheek. Keeping it moist can help preserve it.
Relief Dental takes care of dental emergencies quickly. If you experience a severe dental issue, call the office right away or request your appointment online.
