Protecting You and Your Loved Ones at Troutdale Dental
You are always important to us, and we’re here for you every day, at all times—not just during office hours. If you experience a dental emergency, call our practice right away. Our staff would be happy to help you and schedule a priority appointment. If you are unable to reach us during an emergency, call 911.
Although dental emergencies are rare, they can happen to anyone, and they are entirely unpredictable! When your dental health is jeopardized, you are our primary concern.
It is important that you have someone you can trust in your time of need. Our experienced professionals are here to help you whenever an emergency arises. Common dental emergencies include:
Broken or Cracked Tooth | Save the pieces of the tooth if possible. We will bring you into the office to discuss your treatment options with you. You may choose to take an over-the-counter pain reliever in the meantime. Use a cold compress or ice pack to reduce swelling.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth | If you are able to locate the tooth, replace it, if possible. Keep it in its proper socket in the mouth, or in saltwater or milk until you reach the office. If you make it into our office quickly enough, our dentists may be able to save the tooth.
Object Stuck Between the Teeth | Don’t use sharp tools to pick out something stuck between the teeth. If flossing, brushing, and rinsing won’t work, allow our dentists to safely remove the object and restore your comfort.
Severe Toothache | A toothache may be sign of an abscess or infection that requires immediate treatment. Don’t hesitate to call us at Troutdale Dental to schedule an emergency visit.
Broken or lost dental work, chipped teeth, and loose fillings should also be addressed as soon as possible. When pressing dental problems go untreated, they may become more complicated and lead to a lifetime of poorer oral health. Call our office and we will be happy to assist you.
Don’t face a dental emergency alone! Call us at Troutdale Dental today and we will get you through any difficult dental issue and help you find relief fast.
