Emergency Dental Care

Immediate Relief When You Need it Most

Dental pain may start out as just a tiny twinge, but it isn’t something you should ignore. Whether a toothache, tender, swollen gums, or other discomfort, don’t wait to see us. Dental pain doesn’t get better over time. In fact, it only gets worse. At Shortline Dental, all three of our convenient and affordable Tulsa dentist offices offer same-day and walk-in emergency care.

Some dental emergencies can be improved before you arrive by following these instructions:

  • Knocked Out Tooth- Rinse the tooth under warm water to remove debris, then place the tooth back in the socket and hold it in place until you get to our office. Or, place the tooth in a baggie of milk or water with a pinch of salt and bring it to us.
  • Broken Tooth- if you tooth is cracked or broken, rinse with warm water and apply an ice pack to recduce swelling while you’re on your way.
  • Severe Toothache or Something Caught Between Teeth- Rinse your mouth and the area around the painful tooth. Try flossing to remove any debris that might be causing the discomfort. Call or come in if the pain persists. Do not use an aspirin on the tooth as it could damage your gum.

Bleeding that does not subside or a possible broken jaw should have a cold compress applied as you proceed immediately to your closest emergency room.

Dental pain should not be a part of your daily life. At Shortline Dental, our same-day and walk-in emergency care can help stop the hurt so you can smile again.
