Compassionate Care in Critical Situations

You can’t plan for a dental emergency. Emergencies are stressful, painful, and unexpected. But don’t panic — Dr. Allison F. Fowler and her team are ready to help! We help patients through their dental emergencies by offering same day appointments and first aid tips whenever our patients need us. Don’t hesitate to contact our office any time. We’re happy to help, and we’re dedicated to keeping patients’ smiles whole and healthy.

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Whether your emergency stems from a long-standing dental problem that is suddenly causing you pain or it is the result of a sudden trauma, Dr. Fowler can provide gentle, effective treatment to relieve your agony and get your oral health back on track. Before your emergency appointment in our office, however, there may be some steps you can take on your own to manage the situation.

Toothache

A toothache is often the result of an infection inside a tooth. When that occurs, root canal therapy or an extraction might be the best treatment option. Before your appointment, you may be able to mitigate your pain via OTC pain relievers.

Chipped or Broken Tooth

Avoid chewing with the damaged tooth. Placing a piece of sugar-free gum on top of it can protect the soft tissues in your mouth from any jagged edges. Dr. Fowler may be able to repair the tooth.

Avulsed (Knocked-Out) Tooth

Touch the tooth only by its top part, and gently rinse off any debris. If possible, place the tooth back in its socket. Otherwise, store it in a glass of milk or water; it is important that it remains moist. Dr. Fowler might be able to splint the tooth back into place if you receive treatment within an hour of when it was knocked out.

Lost Restoration

You might be able to temporarily reattach a lost crown with a dab of toothpaste or denture adhesive. But you should avoid using the tooth to chew and get to our office promptly. The longer the weakened tooth is exposed, the greater the risk of further damage.

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies
