- A Knocked Out Tooth | If your tooth has been knocked out, attempt to place the tooth back into the socket, and call us immediately. If the tooth cannot be re-inserted, place the tooth in a container of milk, and bring it with you to our office.
- A Broken or Chipped Tooth | If your tooth has become broken or chipped, we will schedule you for care as soon as possible, and provide you with immediate restorative options. Before you come into our office, we may recommend a cold compress to help alleviate tooth pain.
- Lost Dental Work | If a piece of dental work, or an appliance becomes dislodged, or falls out, call us at our office immediately. We will schedule you for treatment to have the dental work fixed or replaced as soon as possible.
- Severe Toothache | Patients who are experiencing a severe toothache or tooth pain should call us at our office for immediate relief. A severe toothache may indicate a tooth infection or other issue, and an emergency root canal may be necessary.
- Broken Jaw | If you injure your jaw, first apply a cold compress for relief, and then call our office. Our team at Destination Dentistry, will schedule an emergency appointment for jaw treatment.
