WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU GET HERE
If your tooth has been knocked out, be sure to bring the tooth with you. Do your best not to touch the roots, if they are still attached to the avulsed tooth.
If you have an infection (swollen mouth or area), come in as soon as possible. Be certain to drink as much water as possible. Being dehydrated with an oral infection can be dangerous. Taking a fever reducer and anti-inflammatory, like Ibuprofen, is helpful with swelling and pain.
If your teeth or tooth is in a lot of pain from a severe cavity or an issue arising from a dental filling, take a pain reliever and schedule your appointment. We will get you into a dental chair as soon as possible.
