At U9 Dental, we provide emergency care for our patients. However, for that time between your emergency occurs and when you can get to our office, it is important not to panic. Staying calm is the best way to prevent additional dental damage and costly restorations. The first thing to do is call our office to schedule your emergency appointment, and then apply cold compresses to reduce any swelling. If a tooth has been knocked out, immediately put the tooth in a cup of milk and leave it there until you reach our office.
