If you experience a dental emergency and feel you need attention after hours, please call our regular office telephone number. You will be given the phone number for either Dr. Brian Putman or Dr. Jenna Putman. If for some unforeseen reason, you cannot reach one of our doctors during a dental emergency that involves pain or swelling, please proceed to the local emergency room.
When your dental health is at risk, we will do everything we can to make sure that you're treated as soon as possible. While dental emergencies are rare, they can happen, and it's important to know how to take care of your teeth no matter what. Some dental emergencies include:
- Permanent tooth that has been knocked out
- Pain that is not controlled by over-the-counter Ibuprofen or Tylenol
- Swelling, especially if visible when looking in the mirror
