A toothache. A knocked out or broken tooth. A lost crown or filling. You can't always stop dental injuries from occurring, but you can help ease the pain and prevent additional dental damage until you can get to a dentist. At Gregory Robins Family Dentistry, we realize accidents can happen, and when patients are prepared to handle dental emergencies, it can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
Whether you're at home, in the car or at work, when a dental emergency strikes, you'll want to be prepared. Until you can get into our dental office, following these basic steps can help relieve the pain, save your tooth and prevent additional damage. Before acting on any dental emergency, you should always contact Gregory Robins Family Dentistry first to ensure safe and appropriate care.
Temporary dental care is just that- temporary. It's important to seek professional dental assistance as soon as possible following an injury to your teeth or gums.
Fortunately, an unforeseen dental emergency can usually be prevented with early detection and preventative care. Practice good oral hygiene-brushing and flossing daily-and visit our office for regular check ups and cleanings. As a general rule, if your teeth or mouth hurt, visit Gregory Robins Family Dentistry for a careful evaluation and proper treatment.
