What To Expect From Emergency Dental Care
The primary focus for Dr. James Pace; Dr. L. Temp Sullivan; and Dr. James Pace, Jr., FAGD when dealing with an emergency situation is to get all the facts they can before diagnosing the problem. Therefore, when you come in for your emergency dental appointment, make sure you bring as much information as you can. This may include a timeline of when your problems happened, any ER incident reports (if you were in a car accident, had a fall, etc.), or other pertinent information. Do not leave anything out, as the more we know about how your issue started, the faster we can get you help.
What To Do If a Tooth Is Knocked Out
When a permanent tooth is knocked loose from your mouth, you should clean it and reinsert it into the tooth socket, if at all possible. If you cannot reinsert it, try to keep it moist by putting the tooth in a glass of whole milk, or if milk is not available, as much saliva as will cover the tooth. This will help preserve it until you can reach our office. Try not to touch the root of the tooth as this can cause damage.
