Dental Emergencies

At Holladay Dental Studio, we understand that accidents and emergencies happen. When they do, we want you to get the help you need right away. Because of this, we see emergency cases the same day you call. Call our office immediately at 801-997-1137 if you have a dental emergency or are experiencing severe pain.

Examples of dental emergencies:

  • Tooth has been knocked out
  • Loose or misaligned adult tooth
  • Cracked or fractured tooth
  • Tissue injury (such as a puncture)
  • Severe pain of any kind

What to do if your tooth has been knocked out:

  • Call our office immediately.
  • Do not touch the root of the tooth.
  • Rinse gently, holding the tooth by the crown.
  • Do not scrub or remove any remaining tissue.
  • Get to our office as soon as possible.

What to do if you have a loose or misaligned tooth:

  • Call our office immediately.
  • Attempt to gently move the tooth back into position. Don’t push too hard!
  • Bite down carefully to keep the tooth in place (do only if this helps).
  • Get to our office as soon as possible.

What to do if you have a cracked or fractured tooth:

  • Call our office immediately.
  • Be careful chewing to prevent further damage.
  • Get to our office as soon as possible.

For an immediate response, call us before 8 p.m. We almost always succeed on working you into our daily schedule, and even offer after-hours appointments for those truly in need. After 8 p.m., you will be forwarded to an answering machine. Leave a message and we will get back with you as soon as possible. If it is a true emergency and there is excessive bleeding or your life is in danger, get to a hospital immediately.

In addition to our emergency care, we offer same-day treatment as often as possible. If you come in for your regular cleaning and we notice that you need a dental filling or crown, we do our best to get it done that day. No need for multiple visits! We want to make dental care as convenient as possible for everyone involved.

Call our office today at 801-997-1137 if you have a dental emergency or would like to make a regular appointment. You can also use our online form – though this isn’t suggested for emergencies. Let our dedicated team at Holladay Dental Studio help solve your dental problems!
