Dental Emergencies

Lost filling: Place a stick of sugarless gum into the cavity (gum with sugar will cause pain) or use dental cement, which is available over the counter. Call Dr. Williamson.

 

Lost crown: Call Dr. Williamson right away. Bring your crown with you when you come to the office. If you are having pain, use a cotton swab to apply clove oil to the sensitive area. Clove oil is available at your drug store or health food store. If possible, place the crown back over the tooth after coating the inner surface with temporary dental cement, which is available over the counter, toothpaste or denture adhesive. Do not use super glue!
