Emergency Walk-Ins Welcome
You can’t plan for dental accidents or injuries and we never want you to have to spend precious time trying to find a dentist who can fit you in. At Village Dental, we leave a buffer in our schedule to be able to provide same-day emergency appointments for patients in need of urgent dental care. Our mission is to treat the issue right away, relieve any discomfort, and minimize any lasting damage. We’re here for you!
Common Types of Dental Emergencies
What constitutes as a dental emergency? Here are some of the most common dental problems that require immediate attention:
- Broken Tooth or Restoration
- Chipped, Cracked, or Broken Tooth
- Inflamed or Infected Bump on Gums
- Knocked-Out Tooth
- Lost Dental Filling
- Mild to Severe Toothache
How to Handle a Knocked-Out Tooth
If a permanent tooth gets knocked out, pick it up by the crown (top of the tooth) and gently rinse off any debris. Then, if possible, place it back into the socket and bite down carefully on a piece of clean gauze to hold it in place. If you can’t reinsert the tooth, transport it to our dental office in a cup of milk or saltwater. This will help keep the root alive so that we can hopefully save the tooth and successfully replant it.
