Dental Emergencies

At Coldstream Dental your dental emergency is given priority. We provide comprehensive, comfortable care for all ages. We realize that emergencies happen and we do our best to accomodate you.

In the event of an emergency, immediately call our office so that we can bring you in to see one of our dentist as quickly as possible. We provide evening and Saturday appointments to meet your needs.

Common Dental emergencies:

  • Tooth knocked out. If a tooth has been knocked out, please call our office and explain what has happened, so that we can see you immediately. In the meantime, DO NOT scrub dirt off of the tooth, and DO NOT put it in water. Do however, put it in a glass of milk to transport it to our office, or put it in your mouth, just inside your cheek (be sure not to swallow it though).

  • Hit in mouth. It is important that this condition be treated immediately. An X-ray should be taken to check for damage in the surrounding bone.

  • Oral Swelling. Swelling is a sign of infection. Again, it must be treated immediately. If left untreated, the infection could become serious and even life-threatening. We will assess your tooth at this initial appointment and determine if treatment is needed to prevent the recurrence of the infection.

  • Broken Tooth. A broken tooth should be fixed in order to prevent decay from growing in this area. Drug stores often sell a temporary filling material that you can place in the area to protect your tongue from sharp edges until your appointment.

  • Crown off. If a crown has come off please see a dentist as soon as possible. Do NOT attempt to glue it back on yourself.

  • Oral Pain. Call to arrange an immediate appointment. In the meantime, try an over the counter pain reliever. Do NOT apply heat to the outside of your face. Do NOT apply an aspirin directly to the tooth or gum.
