Well, our goal is to make sure that our patients are in optimal oral health at all times. Still, we have to realize that an occasional emergency does exist and does come up. That being the case, we’re very available. We’ll have patients call. Our team realizes that if someone calls and says it’s an emergency, it is, and we will make sure that we see that patient that day. At least we can get started with something that’ll make them more comfortable and not let something progress adversely through a weekend.

Keep Your Smile Flawless With Urgent Dental Care
When you call us with a dental crisis, we’ll get you into our office the same day in most cases. If you’re an established patient facing a true dental emergency, call Dr. Miner’s cell phone number and he will come to the office to tend to your smile. Below are a few types of emergencies that we routinely help our patients through, along with critical steps to take before your appointment:
- Missing Filling – Put a small amount of dental cement or sugar-free gum where the filling was. This temporary measure will protect the area until you can get into our office.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – Call us as soon as possible. Pick up the tooth but be careful not to touch the roots. Place it in a container of milk or salt water to help preserve it, then bring it to your appointment. Ice will help with any pain or swelling.
- Toothache – A hurting tooth could indicate a serious problem, such as an abscess. Come in for an appointment as soon as possible. In the meantime, rinse your mouth with warm water and use an ice pack to help with any swelling.
- Loose or Broken Crown – Try to put the crown back into place using a thin layer of dental cement or toothpaste on the inside surface. If that’s not possible, bring the crown with you to your appointment.
- Broken Tooth – Pick up any pieces of broken tooth if you can. Use an ice pack to help with the swelling and pain until you can come to our office.
