Help, I Broke a tooth!

Woman worried about tooth

We know dental emergencies can happen when we least expect them. At Dental Ben’s we offer same day appointments, which is why Dr. Cooperman is known as the go-to emergency dentist in Peoria! He is always available and goes out of his way to take care of patients. We offer Saturday hours (every other Saturday) and if it is a dental emergency you can call the office and select to speak directly to Dr. Ben on his cell phone. He will guide you through what to do in case of an emergency and will schedule an emergency visit.

So what do I do if I break a tooth?

First thing: don’t panic! These things happen. Being prepared and knowing you have a dentist you can rely on in case of emergency will make a big difference.

  1. Place the broken piece of the tooth into a container with milk and remember to bring it with you to your emergency dental appointment. Rinse out your mouth with warm water or saltwater.
  2. Apply a cold compress to the cheek in correspondence with the broken tooth. This will help with the pain and reduce swelling.
  3. Apply gauze to the broken tooth to help soak up the bleeding.
  4. Call our office to speak to Dr. Cooperman and schedule an emergency dental appointment. Tel: (623) 289-9334.
  5. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen to reduce the pain.

How will Dr. Cooperman take care of my broken tooth?

Dr. Cooperman, your emergency dentist in Peoria, will evaluate the damaged tooth and discuss the ideal treatment with you.

Treatments for a chipped, broken or cracked tooth include:

-Gluing the fragment of tooth back on.

-A filling or placing a crown on the tooth

-In case of a badly broken tooth where the nerves are exposed root canal treatment may be required.

Dr. Cooperman is also specialized in cosmetic dentistry and will ensure you walk away with a beautiful smile!

“Dr. Ben and his staff are amazing!!! This past Saturday a friend of mine woke up in crazy dental pain. I had heard of Dental Ben’s before and knew they were open on a Saturday, so we called them and they were able to work my friend in immediately. From the moment we walked in, Dr. Ben and his staff were incredible. Not only were they accommodating to our emergency, but they were very courteous and professional. Dr. Ben in particular made us feel so comfortable; you can tell that he is passionate about providing high quality dental care. He was able to diagnose and treat my friend fully that same day and we left his practice feeling well taken care of and confident that we made the right decision to see him that day. Thank you for all of your help Dental Ben’s!!” – Lauren
