Be Well Dental

What do I do in the event of a dental emergency?

Like so many things in life, accidents cannot be predicted. They can occur seemingly out of nowhere—knocked-out teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, sudden toothaches, and loose dental crowns are a few examples of dental emergencies.

As sudden and stressful as these scenarios may be, our patients can relax knowing that we understand what they're going through and that we're here to help. We can work with you in any emergency dental situation, even if it's after hours. 

Typical Dental Emergencies That We Treat

From slight to compound dental emergencies, our dental team is equipped to provide the necessary care and treatment so you can feel relieved of pain and stress.

Knocked-Out Teeth

Not all dental emergencies have deadlines, but broken or knocked-out teeth have a narrow time-frame in which we can save your tooth. This means that we should see you immediately to improve our chances. Until you can see us, it's important to keep the tooth root from drying out. We recommend keeping it safe in your mouth, or in a container of milk or water. Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to aid with pain and inflammation.

Tooth Pain

Dental distress can be extremely stressful, not to mention how it can impact a nice meal, a meeting at work, or just daily life. Unlike cramps or headaches that go away in time, tooth pain rarely does—and if it does, it often comes back worse. If you are suffering from tooth aches, call us immediately. 

Fractured Teeth

If a piece of your tooth has broken off, or if your tooth has fractured—it is important that Dr Bao or Dr Will treat your dental emergency right away. We can reattach pieces of your broken tooth, or apply dental bonding to chips and cracks to prevent bacteria from entering and infecting your tooth. 

Lost or Broken Dental Crown

If you have broken or lost your dental restoration, we are available to fix it at any time. We know that it can be uncomfortable, and we want to seal your tooth from food particles or bacteria. .
