The following are helpful guidelines to help you through your dental emergency
- Toothache: Most common dental emergency, please contact us immediately so that we can accommodate your needs.
- Broken, chipped or cracked tooth: Whether it be from a sporting accident or any other facial trauma, please contact us immediately so that instruction can be given that is appropriate for your situation. If at all possible, all broken tooth fragments should be saved and wrapped in wet paper towel or stored in a suitable container.

A wet paper towel to aid in holding the tooth may be helpful. If reinsertion is not possible, hold the tooth under the tongue or store in a container with milk or saline. Please contact us immediately.
- Trauma to the Tongue or Lip: Clean the area with a wet cloth and place a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. Contact your local emergency care center immediately and contact us for follow-up evaluation of the oral cavity.
