Emergency Dental Services
Have you been involved in an accident that knocked out one or several of your teeth? Has a toothache kept you from sleeping or eating properly? Did a dental crown or tooth filling fall out? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may need to contact Dr. Bowman.
We understand that everyone has a different threshold for pain. But if you’ve had a toothache that’s lasted several days or longer, it’s time to schedule an appointment. The pain could be the result of tooth decay, or worse, a dental abscess. Dr. Bowman can put an end to the pain and help prevent your condition from getting worse. The sooner you get help for a knocked out tooth or a broken tooth, the more likely we will be able to save it. To improve your chances, preserve your knocked out tooth in a glass of milk or try to reinsert your tooth into the socket and contact us immediately. For dental crowns that have come off, use temporary cement sold by local drug stores or dental adhesive and place the crown back on your tooth. For dental fillings, use a piece of sugarless gum to fill the gap.
Dental accidents happen all the time, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer.
