Unfortunately, accidents are a fact of life, and even your teeth are subject to unforeseen circumstances that require a level head and some quick action on your part. For example, what do you do when your child’s tooth gets knocked out playing baseball? Well that all depends on whether it’s an adult tooth or a baby tooth. What if there is another type of injury involving their teeth and gums?
You have to be ready to respond to all types of dental emergencies and one of our doctors can walk you through the steps you need to take when one occurs.
And what about specific measures you might take to prevent injuries from happening in the first place? Many children and adults engage in contact sports that seem to produce their fair share of injuries to the face, mouth and jaw. High on the list are football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, lacrosse, ice hockey, field hockey and rugby. Not just sports, but children frequently fall playing in the schoolyard or on the driveway in front of the house.

* We do our best to get you in our office within one to two hours of your call, but this is not guaranteed as it is dependent on the patient load for that given day. For the majority of calls, we do adhere to this policy. Our office hours extension policy is not guaranteed and is based upon the nature and extent of the medical treatment. In most cases, the doctor will ask you to make a follow-up appointment during normal office hours so that he or she can start or complete a treatment and/or assess your progress.
