At Brush Rinse Floss, we offer same-day emergency appointments. If you have a dental emergency, please call us and we’ll do our best to see you in the office as quickly as possible. We will assess the nature of your dental concerns to determine if emergency care is required.
There are several signs that emergency dentistry services are necessary. If the tooth damage is severe — that is, your tooth is broken, knocked out, or nerve damage occurs — then you need to see a dentist as soon as possible for diagnosis and the appropriate course of treatment.
Also, if you experience a painful toothache and your over-the-counter medicine does not provide relief, please consider reaching out for an emergency appointment. We see many instances of tooth damage occur among younger people, especially those involved in sports. Mouth guards should be worn by anyone playing a sport to minimize risk of dental injury or damage.
If you do experience a dental injury such as having a tooth knocked out, try to insert the tooth back into the socket and bite down on moistened gauze with special attention not to swallow the tooth. If the tooth won’t stay in the socket, rinse it off, and put it in milk or your saliva until you can see a dentist. Always apply a cold wet cloth to the socket to stop bleeding before you come in for your emergency visit.
