Frequently asked questions

Question: I knock out my tooth, what should i do?

Answer: Keep knocked-out tooth moist at all times. If it is an adult tooth try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. If the tooth is a baby tooth, the best thing to do is find the tooth, keep it moist and get to a dentist.


Q: What if I fracture / broken my tooth?

A: For a fractured or broken tooth,  rinse with water to get out debris. Use cold compresses on the face to reduce swelling if needed. Call us for emergency appointment.
