We know that sometimes an emergent oral health issue can arise and can’t be scheduled in advance. If you or someone you love experiences an injury to the gums, teeth, or jaw, it is important to address it as soon as possible. Not seeking immediate medical treatment can increase your risk of serious infection or permanent damage. Waiting for treatment can also increase the time and expense necessary to correct the problem.
A knocked-out tooth or bitten tongue can cause panic in any parent, but quick thinking and staying calm are the best ways to approach such common dental emergencies and prevent additional unnecessary damage and costly dental restoration. This includes taking measures such as the application of cold compresses to reduce swelling, and of course, contacting our office as soon as possible.
