Important: If you have a life-threatening dental emergency, call 911 immediately or visit the nearest hospital emergency room.
Accidents happen. If you or a child falls or gets hit in the mouth and a permanent tooth is lost, stay calm. Locate the tooth, pick it up by the crown portion (the part of the tooth that you see in the mouth) and rinse it very gently. Do not scrub! If you can reinsert the tooth, do so. If you are uncomfortable with doing that, please call the office right away. Keep tooth moist by placing it in a tooth preservative kit (save-a-tooth), milk, or even your own mouth next to your cheek, being very careful not to swallow it. If it is a child, do not let them keep it in their mouth. Ideally it is best to see a dental professional within 30 minutes
If a tooth has chipped, Dr. Schultz will need to asses the type of chip, the amount that has chipped off, and what can be done to fix it. We offer cosmetic dental procedures that help restore your beautiful smile.
Infections and pain
If you feel pain on a tooth, swelling, or drainage, call the office. Dr Schultz will be happy to locate the source, and help you to find a solution to get out of pain.
