Know What To Do In An Emergency
It’s important to know what to do and what not to do when you’re experiencing a dental crisis. Below are a few common types of dental emergencies and some important steps to take before you’re seen in our office:
- Toothache – First rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply ice or a cold compress to your cheek in the area of the toothache.
- Loose or Dislodged Tooth – Try to carefully push the tooth back into place if possible. Use ice to help with any pain or swelling.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – Being careful to touch the tooth by the crown (top part) and not the roots, place it in a container of salt water, milk, or saliva and bring it with you to the office.
- Loose Crown – Apply a small amount of dental cement or toothpaste to the inner surface of the crown and try to reattach it. If it won’t stay in place, be sure to bring it to your appointment.
- Soft Tissue Injury – Use a small piece of gauze or a moist tea bag to stop any bleeding. If the bleeding continues, go to the nearest emergency room or urgent treatment center.
