Emergencies do not typically occur when we have the time for them, do they? At Juban Cowen Dental Care, we understand that tooth pain and oral injuries are not something you plan for or expect to occur. We also understand that when trauma happens to the mouth you want reliable, knowledgeable, and compassionate care. Dr. Michael Juban leads Juban Cowen Dental Care with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and the skills to handle the most complex dental cases. With dental emergencies, it is essential that patients receive fast treatment with exceptional care. The needs of our patients at Juban Cowen Dental Care are put first every day so that we can ensure top quality dental services.
As with all emergency situations, it is important to stay calm and remember a few basic things when any type of dental trauma occurs. First, assess the situation. Is the tooth that has been injured still in the mouth, or has it been knocked out? If it is still in the mouth, do not touch, wiggle, or move it in any way; if it has been knocked out, find the tooth and pick it up carefully by the crown. Place the tooth in a cup with either your saliva or submerged in milk, and bring it with you to our office. This needs to be done as soon as possible for the best possible treatment outcome. If the tooth has not been knocked out, it is still important that you visit our office. Dr. Juban can assess your tooth and determine if any internal damage has been done to the tooth or tooth root. Many people make the mistake of not coming in after a dental injury, only to find that they are looking at a gray tooth in the upcoming weeks.
