Know What to Do in a Dental Emergency
There are many types of dental emergencies that we routinely treat:
- Broken Teeth
- Dislodged Teeth
- Soft Tissue Damage
- Broken Dental Appliances
If you’re experiencing any of the above situations, it’s important to know what to do before you come to the office:
- For pain and swelling, apply ice to the outside of your cheek. You can also take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
- If your mouth is bleeding, use a small piece of gauze or a moist tea bag to stop the bleeding. If the bleeding continues, go to the nearest emergency room or urgent care center.
- If your tooth has come completely out, be sure to retrieve it by the crown (visible part), and avoid touching the roots. Put it in a container of salt water, milk, or saliva and bring it with you to the office.
Our Emergency Treatment Can Help You Feel Better Fast
