Frequently Asked Questions

Get Answers About Dental Emergencies

What Should I Do If I’ve Knocked Out A Tooth?

Grab the tooth by the top (crown), and put it into a container of cold milk. Call our office immediately to schedule an appointment. 

Time is of the essence. A knocked-out tooth has to be replaced within 1-2 hours at most. If your tooth is not replaced in time, it may not be possible to save it.

What Should I Do If My Dental Work Has Fallen Out?

If you can, retrieve your dental work and put it in a plastic bag. In some cases, it’s possible to save things like pulled-out crowns.

Then, call our office to schedule an appointment. Missing dental work is a dental emergency. Though treatment is not as urgent as some kinds of dental injuries, replacing your dental work quickly is important for protecting your oral health.

What Should I Do About A Severe Toothache?

Call Joshua Austin, DDS & Associates for an appointment. Severe toothaches usually indicate a tooth infection, which requires treatment with a root canal and dental crown.

As you wait for your appointment, you can take over-the-counter medication like naproxen to help with pain. You can also ice the area or apply a topical pain reliever like Orajel to help with discomfort.
