After a dental emergency such as a chipped tooth or broken jaw, it's important to see someone right away so that they do not worsen or spread infection. The Emergency dentistry services at Monica Puentes, DDS can help.

If the dental emergency is with one of your teeth or something more serious such as a jaw injury, don't worry! We will take care of your pain so fast that it won't matter what happened.

Knocked out tooth – Whenever possible, find the tooth and put it back in its socket. If you are unable to find the tooth, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and contact our office for immediate assistance.

Broken jaw – Place an ice pack over the injury site (holding it on by biting down). Do not chew food or drink anything until after seeing a dentist.

Abscess – An abscess is a serious condition requiring prompt treatment by a dentist. An abscess can spread infection to other parts of the body.

Toothache – The first step is to contact us as soon as possible for a consultation. Do not put off addressing the problem, as it may be a sign of more serious problems.
