What to do When Faced With a Dental Emergency
Our dentist are here to support and advise you on what to do in a dental emergency.
We provide pain relief and a quick response to help you avoid further complications.
Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm water to flush away any food or debris. If you are experiencing swelling, apply a cold compress to the area (DO NOT APPLY HEAT). Take a painkiller, such as Advil, Motrin, or Tylenol. If you have a fever with your toothache or swelling that interferes with breathing, either call 911 or have someone drive you to the nearest emergency room.
Soft Tissue Injuries to the Lips, Cheeks, Tongue, or Gums: Any injury in or around your mouth is likely to cause bleeding. Apply a moist gauze pad to the area and hold in place for at least 15 minutes. If the bleeding does not stop or is severe, please contact 911 or go to an emergency room immediately.
Broken Tooth: If you can find the broken part of the tooth, make sure to hold it by the crown and rinse it gently to remove dirt. Do not touch the root of the tooth! Try to place it back in its socket and hold it there. If that’s not possible, place the tooth in a container with saliva, milk, or saltwater. Contact us immediately! The sooner you see a dentist, the better chance of reattaching the tooth or saving it.
Broken Dental Appliance. Do not try to repair broken dentures or appliances on your own, as you might cause further damage. Remove the appliance and place it in a container before contacting us for further instruction. You can also try to reposition the broken piece into a more comfortable position until we can offer our help.
Loose Crown. Apply a small amount of dental cement or toothpaste on the inside surface of the crown, then try to reattach it to the tooth. It should hold until we can assist you. If you cannot reattach the crown, bring the crown with you to your emergency appointment.
