I cracked my tooth! What do I do?!
When you first know you have a cracked tooth, immediately clean the cracked area with warm water. Then, soak a towel with cold water and apply it to your face to ease the pain and decrease swelling. Do not take medicine until you have spoken with a medical professional. Call our office immediately to set up an appointment to fix your cracked tooth as soon as possible.
My tooth was knocked out! What should I do?!
When your tooth is knocked out, you want to keep the socket of the tooth as healthy as possible. Keep the area of the tooth moist.

With your tooth and socket temporarily protected, immediately call our office so our compassionate team can help repair your lost tooth.
