The reason is that Dr. Kleiner is a dedicated dentist that has handled oral health for decades. However, if you are experiencing oral bleeding lasting longer than 10 minutes, a broken jawbone, severe facial trauma or symptoms affecting your ability to breathe or swallow you should head to the emergency room immediately.

There are a few things you can do to help ease the pain from a dental emergency whether it be a toothache, or a knocked out tooth.
