Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions? Reach out to us!

What should I do if I knock out a tooth?

If you knock out a tooth, try to handle it by the crown (top part), not the root. Rinse it gently without scrubbing. If possible, reinsert it into the socket and hold it there. If that's not possible, keep it moist in milk or saliva and call us immediately. Prompt action can significantly increase the chances of saving the tooth.

Can a toothache wait until my regular check-up?

If you're experiencing a severe toothache, especially with symptoms like swelling, fever, or pain when biting, it's important not to wait. These could be signs of an infection that requires immediate attention. Contact us right away for advice and treatment.

How can I avoid dental emergencies?

Regular dental check-ups and maintaining good oral hygiene are key to preventing emergencies. Wearing a mouthguard during sports, avoiding hard foods that can crack teeth, and not using your teeth as tools can also help reduce the risk.
