If your tooth has been broken or knocked out, try to save the fragment and bring it with you to your appointment. Keep the tooth fragment in a small container of cool milk, or a moist paper towel inside a baggie. Ensure that there are no loose tooth fragments remaining in your mouth, as this could become a choking hazard..

Placing a cold compress against your cheek may help reduce pain and swelling while you wait for your appointment. Over the counter pain medications may also help you deal with the pain while you wait to be seen.

Call us immediately if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
