Feel Better Soon With Our Expert Help

With over 30 years of dental experience, Dr. McDowell has seen and treated just about every kind of dental emergency imaginable. No matter what situation you bring to our office, he and our team can help. Below are a few types of dental emergencies we commonly treat, as well as important steps you should take before your visit to our office:

  • Toothache – Use some warm water to rinse your mouth. Then apply ice on the outside of your cheek to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Broken Tooth – Put any broken pieces into a container and bring them with you to your appointment.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth – Retrieve the tooth by the crown (top part), being careful not to touch the roots. Place the tooth in a container of milk, salt water, or saliva and bring it to your appointment.
  • Loose Crown – Place a small amount of dental cement or toothpaste on the inside surface of the crown, then try to reattach it. If it won’t stay on, be sure to bring it with you to the office.
  • Soft-Tissue Injury – Firmly apply a small amount of gauze or a tea bag to stop any bleeding from your lips, gums, tongue, or cheek. If it doesn’t stop within 10 or 15 minutes, head to the nearest emergency room or urgent treatment center.
