We Offer Same-Day Emergency Dental Appointments

We always keep space available for emergency cases, and we even offer after-hours or weekend appointments, if necessary. We do whatever it takes to provide you with top-notch emergency dental care.
What is A Dental Emergency?
When people think of a dental emergency, they often think of a loose, damaged, or lost tooth. However, oral injuries are not the only kind of dental emergency. A pulled-out or loose filling, for example, is considered a serious dental emergency, as is a toothache that you’ve had for several days.
In general, a dental emergency is any condition that is causing you serious pain and discomfort, and that you cannot treat on your own. If your condition meets these two criteria, it’s an emergency, and you should schedule an appointment right away.
What To Do In A Dental Emergency
First, don’t panic. Call Delafield Family Dental, and make sure you get the next available appointment. After you’ve scheduled an appointment, recover your tooth or dental work (if it has fallen out or been knocked out). Rinse it with warm water and replaced in the socket, or put in a small container of milk to keep the pulp alive until your appointment.
Next, you can treat bleeding, if present. Use clean cotton balls or gauze to absorb blood. Your injury should clot within an hour or two. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and naproxen can help with pain and swelling. Do not use aspirin, as it is a blood thinner and can interfere with the clotting process.
Ice packs can also be applied externally, to help treat pain and swelling. Never put an ice pack directly on the wound. Hold it over the cheek, near the affected area.
