It’s all too easy to panic when you’re dealing with a dental emergency, but we encourage you to take deep breaths and try to stay calm! Keeping a level head will help you act quickly, which is crucial in preventing your situation from getting worse. Follow these steps if you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency:

 

  1. Call our office – Give us a call as soon as you can so that we can schedule an emergency appointment for you, which we’re usually able to do that same day. Over the phone, one of our team members can walk you through basic first-aid tips for managing your symptoms until you can get to us.
  2. Have an emergency exam – Once you arrive, Dr. Seif will see you right away. He’ll closely examine the area of your mouth that is bothering you to pinpoint the source of the problem. He can also relieve any serious, immediate pain you may be in.
  3. Get the care you need – Following the exam, Dr. Seif will review his findings with you and explain your treatment options. Together, you’ll work out a plan for restoring your healthy, pain-free smile.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Emergencies

Keys to Preventing Dental Emergencies

Not all dental emergencies can be avoided, but taking a few simple steps can minimize your risk. These steps include:

  • Always wearing a mouthguard whenever you play sports or do something active.
  • Brushing and flossing your teeth every single day.
  • Visiting our office for two checkups a year so that Dr. Seif can detect and treat problems before they turn into emergencies.
  • Not using your teeth to open bottles or tear tags off of clothing.
