What should I do if I need emergency dentistry?


If you have a dental emergency, reach out to Affordable Dental Associates right away. The team can schedule a same-day appointment and also give you care instructions at home until you can come into the office.

Tooth pain


Tooth decay, chips or cracks, and shifting teeth are common causes of tooth pain. You can apply a cold compress or use ice to minimize your discomfort and calm down swelling.

Dental damage


If you have a missing restoration (crown) or broken tooth, the team recommends locating any damaged or fractured pieces of teeth. When you come into the office, they can try to put them back into place.

Knocked-out teeth


If you have a knocked-out tooth, you should also try to locate it and carefully handle the tooth. After cleaning it gently and ensuring you don’t disturb the roots, you can store it in a glass of saliva or milk. 


If the team can’t place your original tooth, you may need dental implants.
