Common Dental Emergencies

Whether you were in an accident that involved getting hit in the mouth or are suffering the consequences of poor oral hygiene, you need to acknowledge your dental emergency so that you can take the appropriate first aid steps. Below, you’ll find some examples of common emergencies as well as general tips for dealing with them. We can give you more specific instructions over the phone depending on your circumstances.

Toothache

Use dental floss around the tooth in question, and rinse with salt water to flush out any food particles that might have gotten stuck; call us as soon as you can if this doesn’t stop the pain. Take ibuprofen or another kind of painkiller if you need to.

Chipped or Broken Tooth

If there’s any bleeding, hold a piece of gauze on it for about 15 minutes. Place dental wax on any jagged edges. You can eat if you need to as long as you stick to soft foods and avoid chewing with the side of your mouth where the damaged tooth is located.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Pick up the tooth by the end normally used for chewing and rinse off any dirt. Try to put the tooth back in its socket; if that isn’t possible, you can store it in a glass of milk instead. Call us immediately and get to our dental office within the hour; it’s possible to replant teeth, but only if we act quickly.

Lost Filling or Crown

You can protect your tooth by temporarily reattaching a lost restoration with dental cement. It’s common to experience tooth sensitivity after a restoration falls out, but you can apply clove oil to the area for comfort.
