A dental emergency can strike when you least expect it. If you experience a dental emergency, you can turn to Costa Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for quick and effective treatment. We are pleased to offer same-day emergency appointments and pledge to take care of you as soon as possible.
To make emergency dental care as affordable as possible, we accept PPO insurances as well as cash, check, and credit card. Some of the most common dental emergencies we handle include:
Toothaches often cause extreme pain. If you face a toothache, carefully rinse your mouth with warm water and use floss to get rid of any stuck food. Place a cold compress on the outside of your mouth if it’s swollen and visit our office right away.
Knocked Out Teeth
If you have a knocked out tooth, hold it by the crown and rinse it off thoroughly if it’s dirty. Avoid scrubbing it so that you can keep all tissue fragments. If you are able to put the tooth back in place, do so. In the event this is not possible, place the tooth in a small container of milk and make an appointment at our office.
Broken or Chipped Teeth
Save any pieces you can of your broken or chipped tooth. If you experience any bleeding, place some gauze to the affected area for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. Then, apply a cold compress to the outside of the cheek, mouth, or lip by the chipped or broken tooth to alleviate pain. Lastly, visit our office. Do not be overly concerned with understanding your local insurance plan. We have a team that can run the insurance and let you know what is covered.
