What To Do If You Have Teeth Knocked Out
If you find yourself in the position of having teeth knocked out, you will need to take action immediately to keep the knocked-out teeth alive so Dr. Forbes can place them back in your mouth. You can do this by finding the teeth that were knocked out and placing them in a glass of milk or warm tap water. Doing this will go a long way in having your smile returned back to the way it was before your dental emergency.
Keeping Outstanding Oral Health Through Dental Exams
During your emergency visit, Dr. Doug Forbes will inspect your teeth and mouth to determine the cause of the pain or discomfort. Our dental treatments go from simple to more complex procedures and may include computer digital radiography or digital X-rays, an intraoral camera, cleaning, removal of cavities, root canals, and fillings.
To prevent toothache and other discomfort in the teeth and mouth, we recommend regular dental checkups. Oral examinations every six months are crucial to maintaining optimal dental health.
Let Dr. Forbes help you find out the cause of the pain and discomfort in your mouth so you can get started on the proper treatment right away. Please call our Columbia, SC dental office at 803-272-4162. You may also book a dental appointment using our online form.
