Handling a Knocked-Out Tooth:
Losing a tooth requires immediate care. If you find yourself in this situation, remember to:
- Avoid touching the root.
- Keep the tooth moist; try placing it back into its socket if possible.
- Alternatively, hold it between the cheek and gums or submerge in milk.
- Be cautious, as a damaged root might make it impossible to reattach.
With Dr. Taís Trevelin at the helm, backed by years of multidisciplinary dentistry experience, we're prepared to handle a range of dental problems. If your issue is outside our expertise, we'll refer you to a specialist suited for your needs.

Financing Your Emergency Dental Care:
Many PPO dental insurance plans cover emergencies. It's advisable to check with your plan administrator for clarity. Our Dental Office collaborates with various PPO insurers and will assist with the billing process as a courtesy. Should you lack insurance or find that your plan doesn't cover emergencies, we offer multiple payment options, including cash, check, money orders, wire transfers, and CareCredit—a healthcare financing alternative offering 0% APR and low fixed rates.
Protecting Your Smile:
To minimize dental emergencies, maintain good oral hygiene—brush, floss, and schedule regular checkups at our Dental Office. Use protective gear during high-contact sports and avoid chewing hard items like ice, candy, or pens.
