Dr. Tanner realizes that emergencies aren’t planned. At Grand Avenue Dental Care, we offer same-day emergency dental care for our patients in Billings, MT. Our team loves each patient and wants to help. If you’ve experienced an emergency, simply call our office and explain the situation. We’ll do everything within our power to fit you in that very day.
What To Do in the Event of a Dental Emergency
If you’ve experienced an emergency that requires prompt dentistry care, immediately call Dr. Tanner at our main office number. If you are unable to contact us immediately, or if the emergency relates to a non-dental injury, you should seek medical assistance at the nearest emergency room. If you do not get ahold of us on the first try, make sure to leave a message so that we can everything possible to get you into our office as soon as possible.
What to Do if You Have a Broken Tooth
If your tooth breaks, you should first rinse your mouth with warm water. Once you’ve finished, you can then gently apply pressure to the gums (not the tooth) in order to stop any bleeding.
If, at all, possible you should attempt to save any tooth pieces that have been dislodged.
What to Do if You Have a Knocked-Out Tooth
If you’ve knocked out one of your teeth, one of the best things you can do is try to re-insert that tooth back into your jaw. If the tooth cannot be re-inserted, place the tooth in a container with milk. Call us at our office immediately to schedule an emergency appointment. We will do everything we can to get you prompt treatment and may be able to save your tooth.
Make sure to call our main number and explain that your situation is an emergency because the sooner we can treat you in the office the better the chances are that we can save the majority of your original tooth. We will fit you in as soon as we can
