Dental Emergencies

First of all, call us right away. We are open extended hours for your comfort and convenience. Explain your symptoms to the dentists at TLC Dental Care and ask to be seen as soon as possible.

Toothache

Take an over-the-counter pain medicine that works for you, but do not put the pills on your sore tooth. Hold an ice pack against your face at the spot of the sore tooth. This will ease the pain.

Chipped or broken tooth

Broken teeth can almost always be saved. Call us right away and explain what happened.

Knocked out tooth

If the tooth is put back in place within 10 minutes, it has a fair chance of taking root again. If the tooth looks clean, put it back in its place (its socket). If this is not possible, or if there's a chance that the tooth might be swallowed, put it in a container of cold milk. Go to your dentist, or to the nearest dentist, right away. If you get help within ten minutes, there is a fair chance that the tooth will take root again.

Badly bitten lip or tongue

Press down on the part of the mouth with a clean cloth to stop the bleeding. If the lip is swollen, use an ice pack to keep the swelling down.

Lost filling

Put a piece of softened sugarless chewing gum in the spot where the filling was lost. This will protect the area for a short period of time. See a dentist as soon as possible.
