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 application of cold compresses to reduce swelling, and of course, contacting our office as soon as possible.
If a dental emergency occurs it is important to contact us as soon as possible for a professional evaluation to minimize damage to the teeth, gums and supporting bone. Short-term action can be taken to relieve severe oral pain. It is common for people suffering from dental pain to take over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen; if the pain is due to an underlying problem then such medication can only give minimum pain relief.
We are known by our patients as a team that understands dental pain and other suddenly occurring events like losing your crown, chipping your tooth or having serious problems opening your mouth due to an infection of a wisdom tooth. Many of our patients also know that as they came to see us we were surprisingly the first clinic giving cause not to fear seeing the dentist.

Do not worry if you are a nervous patient as all our staff are specially trained to help make you feel at ease. Our office is a clinic with a difference, come and experience the difference for yourself.
