What to Do in a Dental Emergency

In a dental emergency, it is important to remain calm and act quickly. If you handle the issue promptly, there is a real possibility of saving your tooth! Here are a few scenarios you may be experiencing and the steps you can take to salvage your tooth and oral health. If You Lose a Tooth: If your tooth is knocked out as a result of dental trauma, it is important to immediately locate the tooth if possible. Pick up the broken tooth by the crown, or the white outer part you typically see when you smile. If necessary, rinse the tooth in warm water, but do not remove any tissue or scrub the tooth. Finally, store the knocked out tooth in milk or gently return the tooth to its place, and make your way to our offices within the hour for the best chance of having it returned to the socket correctly. If you Lost a Dental Filling or Dental Crown: It is very important that you do not use glue or other temporary measures to put your device back in place. Call our emergency dental clinic to have your crown or filling restored promptly. If you experience pain, we recommend using over-the-counter pain medication to manage these symptoms. If you have a Severe Toothache: If you have this dental problem, the first thing you can do is to swish warm water in your mouth or floss in order to dislodge any food particles that could be causing dental pain. If this isn’t successful, or you can see damage or swelling in the tissues of your mouth, schedule an appointment with our emergency dental office. Hold a cold compress to the outside of your cheek in order to numb any sites of dental pain while you wait for your appointment. You can also take over-the-counter pain medication, but do not apply any medication directly onto the site.  If you have an Abscess: An abscess is a very serious dental health condition that should be addressed immediately. Otherwise, there is the possibility that infection could spread to other parts of the body. Call our offices immediately if you have a dental abscess. You can rinse with a mild salt water solution to manage pain in the meantime. Request Emergency Appointment
