Helpful Tips for Emergencies

We want you to call us immediately whenever you have an emergency, as these situations should always be treated quickly. Here are some things you can do as temporary measures before you get to our office.

dental-emergencyKnocked-out tooth: Keep your tooth moist at all times. Try to place the tooth back in the socket without touching the root, and bite down on a wet tea bag or some gauze to hold it in place.

If that’s not possible, carry the tooth inside your lower lip or under your tongue. You can also put the tooth in a container and cover it with some saliva or whole milk.

Knocked-out baby tooth: Keep the baby tooth moist and bring your child to our office as soon as possible. The doctor will see whether all or part of the tooth fell out, and will determine if it can or should be reinserted.

Cracked tooth: Clean the area by rinsing your mouth with warm water. Place a cold compress on your face near that tooth to inhibit swelling.

Broken tooth: Save all the pieces you can find, and rinse your mouth with warm water to flush out any remaining fragments. Place a cold compress on your face near that tooth to inhibit swelling.

Loose crown: If your dental crown detaches, first try to gently slip it back on. To help it stay attached, place some over-the-counter dental cement or denture adhesive inside the crown. If none of these things can be gotten, try using some toothpaste. If this doesn’t work to keep the crown in place, or you have no opportunity to attempt sticking it back on, bring the crown with you to our office.

Lost filling: Use some over-the-counter dental cement or a piece of sugarless gum to temporarily seal up the exposed cavity.

Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm water, and use dental floss to gently remove any food particles stuck between your teeth. Place a cold compress over the area if any swelling has occurred. Don’t put any aspirin on the aching tooth or on the gums, as it may burn the gums.

Dental abscess: To help draw the infection to the surface and alleviate the pain, rinse your mouth with a mixture of ½ teaspoon of salt in eight ounces of water. Do this several times a day.
