Call our West End office at (804) 755-8050, or Richmond City office at (804) 658-5665. IF YOU HAVE HAD A TOOTH KNOCKED OUT, IT IS IMPORTANT TO SAVE THE TOOTH.
If you make your appointment right away, and bring the tooth with you when you come to the office, we can sometimes reinsert the tooth. Even 30 minutes can make the difference between losing or saving the tooth.
If You Lost Your Tooth:
Handle the Tooth Gently
Rinse the Tooth - Do Not Scrub. Place towel or washcloth in sink beforehand so that the tooth does not fall down the drain.
Place the tooth back in your mouth next to your cheek

Dr. Babik is a phenomenal dental professional. I chipped a tooth late Friday night and called his office and left a message about my dilemma and not only did he call me back but he and a staff met me in the office on a Saturday morning to repair my tooth so I could complete my speaking engagement on Sunday morning. His office staff especially his sister and brother enhance their office operations beyond the realms of greatness. Dr. Babik has an incredible chair side manner that puts the most anxious patient at ease.
