Benton & Nelson DDS

What should I do if I've had a dental injury?

Come to the office ASAP: 

Call our office ASAP and place the tooth or tooth fragments in cold milk.

The sooner, the better: 

Immediate treatment in the dental office improves outcomes and increases the chances of saving the tooth.

Splinting of injured teeth: 

At our office, the teeth will be temporarily splinted (glued) together in a very simple process. This allows your body to heal the injured teeth in the appropriate location.

Temporary replacement of missing teeth: 

If the teeth cannot be saved, then our office will make you a temporary device that can restore your smile until the final treatment can begin.
