Four of the Most Common Dental Emergencies


Accidents and Trauma

A pickup hockey game, an ordinary day at work…and now an issue you’re hoping a skilled dentist can repair. If you’ve lost a tooth, put it back into its socket or into a container of milk or water, apply ice to the face if needed, and make an appointment to see us right away.

Most accidents—from broken teeth to lost teeth—can be treated in a single visit. Our digital X-ray machine is ready for you. Come as soon as you can.


Broken Tooth

Can this tooth be saved? You want to know, and we want to find a way to say “yes.” A digital X-ray will reveal whether your tooth can be bonded and protected against infection and injury, or whether you require an extraction. In case of extraction, a dental implant offers the kind of fit that naturally blends with the rest of your smile.


Tooth Loss

Lost a tooth? Don’t touch the root. Instead, return the tooth to the socket in your mouth, and see us right away. You can also put the tooth in a container of milk or water, and apply ice to your face. If you and your tooth can be reunited, you will be.


Oral Surgery

Everyone prefers a noninvasive option when possible, but sometimes oral surgery is needed for issues such as dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, jaw correction, or TMJ. Whatever your issue, our mission is to restore your smile while keeping you pain-free and comfortable. Expect us to thoroughly brief you at every step. You’ll understand the benefits of each option so you can make an informed decision.

 

The Norge Dental Experience

Your comfort is our top priority. While you’re with the dentist, we’ll offer you a pair of headphones with soothing music, a warm blanket and pillow, lavender-scented eyeshades, or a conscious sedation—because your comfort is important to us.

Your emotions are as much a part of you as your oral health, and your dentist and our team will not begin or finish a procedure without asking if you’re doing okay, and making sure you’re feeling up to speed.

Yes, I want to schedule my appointment today!
