Emergency Dental Treatment

If you're experiencing a toothache try rinsing your mouth to clear any debris. Toothaches are commonly caused by debris lodged between two teeth and causing discomfort. However, if the pain does not subside, you should call Burgess Dental right away at (901) 756-8111.

Broken or Cracked Teeth

In cases where your tooth or teeth have been broken or knocked out, don't panic. As long as you take quick action, there is no cause for alarm. If the tooth is completely missing, rinse blood and debris out and try to place the tooth back in its socket. Also press a cold cloth on the cheek nearest the missing tooth while waiting to see a dentist. If you cannot place it back it its socket, hold the tooth by the top, or crown, not the bottom, or root. Put the tooth in a container of warm milk, saline, or the victims own saliva and leave it there until you get to the dentist. If your tooth is broken, rinse it with warm water repeatedly and place a cold cloth near the damaged area.

Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a lifetime treatment plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage. Contact our office as soon as possible.
