Why Choose Dentistry in Motion for Emergency Dentistry?

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies tend to come in one of two unpleasant varieties. Either they develop in the blink of an eye, such as with a traumatic accident, or they take months to develop, like with a severe toothache. Our team is able to handle both, but if you’re unable to come see us right away, the following tips will help you get some temporary relief:


Rinse and floss around the tooth at first. Sometimes, a toothache can be the result of something being stuck in-between the teeth. If the pain persists, however, it’s okay to take an OTC medicine, and applying a cold compress to the face can help as well.

Chipped/Broken Teeth

Start by rinsing the mouth with warm water, and then try to find any pieces of the tooth that you can, placing them in a safe container. Don’t chew with the remaining tooth, and if it has a rough edge, you can cover it either with a piece of sugarless gum or some dental wax.

Knocked-Out Tooth

We can secure a fully dislodged tooth back into place, but only an hour or so after the initial accident. Call us immediately, recover the tooth, give it a quick rinse, and see if you can place it back into its socket. If not, store the tooth in a container of milk or saltwater until we can see you.

Lost Filling / Crown

While not always an emergency, it’s best to have a tooth repaired right away if a restoration falls off to prevent any further damage. Try to place it back onto the tooth, and avoid chewing with it until we’re able to see you.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

As with any dental problem, prevention is always the smartest way to go. The following will drastically lower your chances of experiencing a dental emergency:

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

There is no set cost for emergency dentistry, as every patient’s situation and needs are unique. One might just require a small filling, while another may have to have a few teeth removed and replaced. Our treatment recommendations will be based on what will get a patient out of pain the fastest and is needed to repair any damage. If cost is a concern, we accept many different insurance plans, and flexible financing is easy to sign up for as well.
