When you’re considering dental care providers for your family, you’re going to want to choose someone who will be there for you when it really counts. If you find yourself in the middle of a dental care emergency, JL Dental is here for Arnold families with same-day emergency dentistry. If treated quickly enough, many dental emergencies can be prevented from turning into more complex problems that require more extensive treatment in the future. Use this page as a guide whenever you’re experiencing an oral health emergency, and then call our office as soon as you can.
Dental emergencies that might arise at any time include:
If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain, it could be a sign of a serious dental emergency, so contact us and let us know you need to come in immediately. We’ll make way for you in our schedule and provide you with information about how to handle the pain before you get to us.
When a tooth is chipped, broken, or knocked out, find the piece(s) of the tooth that has been lost if possible. We may be able to reconstruct your tooth using these recovered pieces. For a completely knocked-out tooth, gently rinse the tooth, but don’t remove any of the tissue attached to the tooth root. Place the tooth in a glass of milk and bring it with you to the office. Our dental emergency treatment may be able to replace the tooth. Know that time is very important in situations like this. If you come to our office within an hour of knocking out your tooth, our chances of fully repairing your smile with your own tooth will be much higher.
Children commonly experience dental emergencies, and our dentists are great with kids. We offer regular children’s dentistry, so we’ve got plenty of experience soothing the fears of little ones. When your child is having a dental emergency, bring them to JL Dental in Arnold to make sure they receive the compassionate and gentle emergency care that kids need.
