Emergency Dentistry in
Wauwatosa

Emergencies can happen at any time. Being prepared and discussing emergency situations with your dentist is the best way to save valuable time and stress in the unfortunate situation of a dental emergency. Knowing what to do can be the difference between losing and saving a tooth. Always have your dentist’s number readily available in the case of an emergency.

Emergency Dentistry in Wauwatosa

You should always contact your dentist right away in an emergency situation. If you lose a permanent tooth, try to keep it moist while you get to the dentist. You can try placing it back in the socket if that is not painful, or you can place it between your cheek and gums. If that is not possible, placing it in milk can help improve the chances of saving the tooth.

If you crack a tooth or bite your tongue or lip, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. For toothaches or objects stuck in your mouth, gently use floss to clean the area and remove any debris. Do not put aspirin on your teeth or gums and never use a sharp object on your teeth.

Wearing a mouth guard during physical activity will help protect your teeth. And avoid chewing foods like ice, popcorn kernels, or hard candy to reduce the chances of cracking a tooth. Also, refrain from cutting or tearing objects with your teeth.

Friendly staff, clean office, personable hygienist, good dentist. It all adds up!! They did an amazing job dealing with my dental anxiety and were accomodating, kind, and thorough. I’ve never left the dentist feeling so good before!

Dental Arts is the absolute best! Dr. Mike helped me with an emergency tooth situation, right before I was leaving for a weekend away. He stayed late, and ensured it was perfectly done. If you want excellent teeth and amazing customer service, this is the place to go!

I had a very good experience today. I am very afraid when it comes to dentist and pain. I felt do pain whatsoever. I would recommend Dental Arts to anyone. Most of my family comes here also. All I can say is Great Job!!!
