What to Do
In a Dental Emergency
We know this is easier said than done, but do your best to stay calm in an emergency. Rest assured that we are trained and prepared to fix whatever dental emergency or injury you are experiencing.
It is critical that you use clean gauze to control any bleeding. Apply light pressure to any wounds to help reduce the bleeding. It should slow down within an hour.
If you are experiencing pain or swelling, use ibuprofen or acetaminophen to relieve it. Do not use aspirin, as it is a blood thinner. Apply ice to the injured area as needed.
Never hesitate to call us in case of a dental emergency. We will ask you a few questions to assess the situation and get you into our office as soon as possible.
