Many other situations could also be dental emergencies. If you have any questions about whether a dental problem is urgent, please contact George Family Dental Care right away to get their advice.
At George Family Dental Care, we prioritize dental emergencies as necessary. If you come in with a dental emergency of any kind, our supportive and kind staff is ready to help right away. In most cases, we can arrange for you to see Dr. George without delay.
To make the emergency treatment process as smooth and easy as possible, we recommend that you call the George Family Dental Care when you're on the way with a dental emergency. This allows us to arrange the schedule to fit you in, and it allows Dr. George and the staff the chance to prepare for prompt treatment as soon as you arrive.
If a tooth is entirely dislodged from the mouth, there's a chance that it can be saved if you get to the George Family Dental Care office right away. Retrieve the tooth, picking it up only by the crown and leaving the roots undisturbed. If possible, place the tooth back in the socket to preserve it while you're on the way to George Family Dental Care. If placing the tooth isn’t possible, put the tooth into a small container of with cow’s milk to preserve it until you arrive. If you can get to George Family Dental Care in less than an hour, Dr. George may be able to re-implant the tooth successfully.
Feel free to email us regarding any scheduling or general questions!
