How to Handle a Dental Emergency

Dealing with a dental emergency? Here’s what you should do:

  1. Call CNS Dental to set up an emergency appointment
  2. Consult your dental insurance plan to see how emergency dental procedures are covered and to determine if you will have any co-pays for your appointment
  3. If you have a full or partial tooth that has fallen out, rinse it thoroughly and safely store it in milk to help preserve it
  4. If you are bleeding due to mouth trauma, pack gauze, a cotton ball, or a tea bag over the bleeding area
