We’re Here For You
Traumatic injuries can be devastating, especially if there is a risk that you may lose a tooth. If you or your child has been in any kind of accident and a tooth is damaged, call us right away. TIME is the most important element to ensure saving the tooth.
Dr. Bradford’s entire practice is built on saving teeth that might otherwise need to be pulled. But remember, time is of the essence – even if the injury doesn’t seem major or your discomfort is mild. If you experience sensitivity to changes in temperature of food or drink, or chewing, please do not hesitate to call us.
If a tooth is knocked out, you need to see us or your dentist as soon as possible. Do not wash or scrape any remains of your tooth. Instead, rinse it gently in cool water and place it back in the tooth socket, under your tongue, or in a cup of milk and bring it directly to us. The less time your tooth is out, the better our chances are of saving it. Time is of the essence.
