Here are some tips:

  • Knocked-Out Teeth - If you have a knocked-out tooth, you must contact your emergency dentist as soon as possible. Bring your tooth to your dentist, transporting it carefully in milk or saliva.
  • Broken Teeth - Gather the pieces of your tooth if you can and visit your dentist as soon as possible for repair solutions that will prevent further damage.
  • Toothaches or Sensitivity - Severe or constant toothaches typically indicate an infection. Visit your dentist promptly to treat and save your tooth. A dental infection left untreated may result in tooth loss.
  • Compromised Dental Restorations - If you have a lost or broken filling or crown, you will need to repair or replace it to protect your tooth from further damage or an infection. Contact your emergency dentist for further instructions.
