When a Tooth is Knocked Out

One of the most frightening dental emergencies is a knocked-out tooth. The tooth may be saved if immediate and proper action is taken. At our clinic, we will discuss detailed instructions on what to do if you lose a tooth, such as how to clean it and store it until you can go to an emergency dentist.

How to Get Rid of a Bad Toothache

The pain associated with a toothache can range from barely noticeable to debilitating. Until you can see a dentist, you must know what is causing your toothache and how to alleviate the pain. We will talk about how to cure a toothache at home, common OTC pain relievers, and when to visit the dentist in a pinch.

How to Handle a Chipped or Broken Tooth

A fractured or chipped tooth must be fixed immediately to prevent infection and further damage. We will review how to determine how severe a tooth injury is and what you can do immediately to fix it temporarily.

How to Deal with Missing Dental Restorations
