Tips for Seeing an Emergency Dentist

If you have lost a tooth or a piece of tooth, attempt to find and clean the pieces of teeth and bring it with you to Tatnuck Family Dental Care. There is a small window of opportunity where a tooth may be placed back in its original position. If possible, keep these pieces in a glass of milk to keep them safe for restoration.

If you are experiencing pain or swelling, apply a cold compress or ice wrapped in a towel on the outside of your mouth. This will help reduce swelling while you get yourself to the Tatnuck Family Dental Care office.
