In order to be available to our patients for urgent and unplanned dental needs, we set aside time each day for emergency care of current and new patients.
Call us early and we’ll reserve an emergency appointment for you that day. If your dental emergency occurs during non-business hours, Dr. Johnson is available by contacting our answering service. For problems requiring medical emergencies, please call 911.
If a tooth is knocked out, the best thing is to get to the dentist as soon as possible. The tooth should be placed in milk or, if nothing else is available, water. Some pharmacies will have something called Ringer’s solution, though it is likely going to be difficult to find. If Ringer’s solution is available, however, it is a better choice than milk. Because time is such a factor, the best bet is to get to the dentist as quickly as possible.
