What is a dental emergency, and what should I do?

A dental emergency can be frightening and disruptive, but the team at Galloway Smiles is here for you. It is always the goal of our emergency dentist in Grove City, OH to get rid of your pain and restore your oral health.

Dental emergencies may include:

  • Loose tooth
  • Tooth knocked out
  • Broken tooth or restoration
  • Toothache
  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw swelling

Your dentist in Grove City and the entire team at Galloway Smiles works hard to treat your emergency as soon as possible.

Additionally, there are critical steps you should take, dependent on your specific dental emergency.

If you have suffered an impact trauma, make sure to go to the hospital. You can contact your family dentist in Grove City, OH from that location. Your safety matters to our team!

If your tooth is knocked out, keep it in water, milk, or saliva until your dental appointment. With timely intervention, we can often restore the tooth to its socket.

You may be able to avoid future dental emergencies by taking proactive steps today:
