– An aching tooth might seem like a temporary problem, but when the pain doesn’t go away, it could be a sign of severe damage or infection. You should arrange to see your dentist as soon as possible to uncover the source of the pain. In the meantime, rinsing the site with warm water, removing any food particles from the area, and applying a cold compress to the cheek can assist with pain management and swelling.
– If you chip or break a tooth, save any pieces you can, and use warm water to rinse the mouth of any broken pieces. Gauze may be applied to the injury for 10 minutes if any bleeding occurs. If 10 minutes is not sufficient to stop the bleeding, apply pressure until the bleeding stops, changing the gauze pads as needed. Apply ice or a cold compress near the damaged tooth to reduce swelling and manage pain.
Loose or missing teeth
– If a tooth is knocked out, hold it on the crown side (the section that shows above the gum line), and gently rinse the tooth root with water. Do not remove any lingering fragments, but do place the tooth in a small container of milk, water mixed with a pinch of salt, or a specialized product which contains cell growth medium. Arrange to see a dentist as soon as possible. You greatly increase the odds of returning the tooth to its original socket if treated within an hour of it falling out. For a tooth that is partially dislodged, touch the affected area as little as possible. A cold compress may be gently applied to the outside of the mouth if needed until professional dental help can be received.
Dr. Le and the entire staff at Elite Dentistry are fantastic. I was recently told by another dentist that I needed to have two crowns replaced with dental implants. After reading so many great reviews online (including my insurance's website), I went to see Dr. Le. After a comprehensive analysis, Dr. Le explained that we could replace my current crowns and keep my natural teeth, which is always the ultimate goal.

I just had my first consult with Dr. Michael Le. Very friendly staff. If you are cold in his office be sure ask for a blanket. It was warm, soft and comfortable. Looking forward to following my treatment plan. Thank you Elite Dentistry for accepting me as a new patient. It is nice to have a great dentist close to home.
