While some dental emergencies are obvious, like knocked-out teeth and excessive bleeding, some are more subtle. As a general rule, we consider any oral issue that is causing you pain and that you cannot treat on your own to be a dental emergency. This includes cracked, chipped, or impacted teeth, as well as issues like serious toothaches and pulled-out dental work (such as fillings or crowns). If you still have a question about whether your issues is considered an emergency, don’t hesitate to call our team and discuss your situation. You can reach us at (401) 351-0072.

How to Handle a Knocked-Out Tooth
If your tooth has been knocked out, take the following steps to ensure the best possible outcome for your dental health:
- First, contact our office at (401) 351-0072 to let us know that you will be coming in for a walk-in appointment right away.
- Retrieve your tooth and rinse it gently with warm water.
- Replace the tooth in its socket, if possible. If you cannot replace the tooth in its socket, place it in a baggie or container of milk.
- Treat bleeding with clean cotton balls or gauze, and come to our office with your tooth as quickly as you can.
Dentistry on Your Schedule
We offer same-day appointments for our patients because we believe that nobody should have to wait for professional care in emergencies. If possible, we ask that you give us a call before you come in, to allow us to assess your situation and prepare for your visit. However, we know it isn’t always possible to call ahead. If you’re in pain, feel free to walk in without an appointment and we will treat you as soon as we possibly can.

With our sedation options, you can get relief from the pain and discomfort of your oral injury within moments of entering our office. Oral conscious sedation is available for all of our emergency patients, and we’ll make sure you get the relief you need to stay comfortable during your emergency treatment.
