- Broken/Loose Braces
- Chipped/Broken Teeth
- Lost Filling/Crown
- Tooth Loose
- Jaw Injury

What to do if you have a dental emergency
First, make sure there is no life-threatening risk to yourself or the person experiencing the dental emergency beyond the teeth. If there is, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
If your dental emergency is not life-threatening, you should call us ASAP to make an emergency appointment to see a dentist. Our team at All Brite Dental will treat your dental emergency with care and expertise.
In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to care for your dental emergency:
- If there is any bleeding, make sure you stop the bleeding with gauze or a handkerchief of some kind.
- If you have lost a tooth, try to put the tooth back into the socket. If you are unsuccessful in doing so, make sure to keep it moist at all times by placing it in milk, a tooth preservation product, or in between your gums and cheek.
- For a toothache or cracked tooth, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and place an ice pack on your cheek to numb the area.
- If you have a gum or pulpal abscess, take anti-inflammatory medication and rinse your mouth with saltwater.
- With pericoronitis, rinse your mouth with salt water and make sure that there is no food trapped under the gum flap. Anti-inflammatory medication and topical pain relievers will also help.
What does emergency dental care cost?
No matter your financial situation, if you have an emergency dental situation don't hesitate to call us. We will work hard to make sure you get the care you need at an affordable rate.
With that said, emergency dental care costs depend on several factors. Primarily, the cost depends on what the emergency is and what work is required. For instance, emergency root canals will cost more than emergency tooth extractions.

Regardless of your situation, call us now and get the care you need!
