Dental emergencies are one of the things that I open my arms to the most. It's one of the things that got me into the field, getting rid of somebody's pain or issue. I take a lot of dental emergencies, and I'm open late hours for people that work but have a tooth issue or concern that they want dealt with. I run my office with the hours I do to help people be able to come in when they need to. I also have an on-call number where people, if they need to come in on a weekend because something hurts or they broke, they're able to get ahold of me. Probably the largest contributor to my patient numbers is people that have come in for emergencies. It's in an ideal location, it's easily accessible, and we can almost always get somebody in the same day.

Receive Expert Emergency Dental Care in Your Time of Need
Over the years, Dr. Eric Wendelschafer has provided care for just about every type of dental emergency. No matter what your individual situation is, he and our skilled team will be able to help.
Below is a list of a few common dental emergencies, along with important tips on what to do before you’re seen in our office. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.
- Toothache – First rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply an ice pack or cold compress to the outside of your cheek.
- Loose Tooth – You can use ice on your cheek to relieve any pain and swelling. Taking an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen will also help with pain.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – Be sure to pick up the tooth by the crown (white part) and not the roots. Place it in a container of milk, salt water, or saliva, and bring it to the office with you.
- Loose Dental Crown – Try to reattach the crown using a small amount of dental cement or toothpaste. Bring it with you to our office if it won’t stay in place.
- Soft Tissue Injury – Using a small amount of gauze or a wet tea bag, try to stop any bleeding from your gums, cheeks, tongue, or lips.
