Do I have a Dental Emergency?
Whether you’ve cracked a tooth on a hard cookie or your dental crown comes loose at a company outing, dental emergencies can happen at anytime, anywhere. In these untimely situations the following steps have tips to take care of your teeth and health while you make a call to see your local dentist:
Knocked-out Adult Tooth: Use warm water to gently rinse your mouth and attempt to place the tooth back into place by holding the tooth by the crown. If this is not an option, place the tooth in a small container of whole milk to preserve it while you visit the dentist immediately.
Knocked-out Baby Tooth: If a baby tooth has come out prematurely, contact the dentist right away as you keep the tooth moist in cold whole milk. Our services in pediatric dentistry may be able to observe if the tooth has come out cleanly or if the tooth can be repositioned.
Cracked Tooth: Gently rinse your mouth with warm water and floss around the affected area to remove any trapped food particles that could infect the tooth. Call the dentist immediately to come in for emergency restorative care and try to avoid contact with any outside particles if possible.
Toothache: Carefully clean the area by rinsing with warm water and flossing gently to remove any trapped food particles. Applying a cold ice pack to the area can reduce swelling. Phone our office to schedule a consultation.
