Know What to Do in Case of a Dental Emergency

Know What to Do in Case of a Dental Emergency

A dental emergency could happen when you’re enjoying a delicious meal and bite down on something that cracks a tooth. Or you might get in an accident and suffer a blow that knocks out one of your teeth. Whatever the situation, it’s important to know what to do when a dental crisis happens. Below are some common dental emergencies and the steps to take before you’re seen in our office:

  • Toothache – Rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply ice or a cold compress to the outside of your cheek in the area of the pain. Taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen will help with pain and swelling.
  • Loose or Dislodged Tooth – Try to gently move the tooth back into position if possible. Applying ice will help with any pain or swelling before your appointment.
  • Broken Tooth – Retrieve any pieces of your tooth and bring them with you to your appointment.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth – Be careful to only touch the tooth by the crown (white part) and not the roots. Try to put it back in place if possible. If not, put the tooth in a container of salt water or milk and bring it to the office.
  • Soft-Tissue Injury – Use a small piece of gauze or a moist tea bag to stop any bleeding from your cheek, lips, gums, or tongue. If the bleeding doesn’t stop in a few minutes, go to the nearest emergency room or urgent treatment center.
