Common Dental Emergencies We Treat:
Cracked Teeth: A cracked tooth can happen from a number of reasons.
These are some of the most common ones:
- Grinding or clenching teeth
- Hard food or candies
- Biting or chewing on a pen or pencil.
Knocked Out Tooth: If your tooth gets knocked out, try to recover it and follow these steps: Rinse the tooth carefully to remove any dirt or debris. Do not scrub the tooth. Keep the tooth moist by placing it in a glass of milk or water. Place cloth or gauze on the wound to control the bleeding.
