Dental First Aid – What To Do
Dental emergencies can be scary and overwhelming. When it’s your emergency, it can be incredibly painful and you may sometimes feel worried that your smile may never fully recover. When it’s happening to someone you care about, it can be incredibly difficult to see them suffer.
The most important first step, before any emergency happens, is to save our number to your contacts so that you can call us directly in an emergency.
Here are some practical tips for common dental emergencies:
- Toothache – Apply a cold compress to the area. You may be able to take the edge off your pain by taking a pain reliever like acetaminophen (ex. Tylenol) or ibuprofen (ex. Advil). Always follow the advice of your doctor and read the instructions on the bottle when taking any medication, and let us know what you’ve taken, how much and when you took it when you come in.
- Knocked-Out Teeth – SAVE THE TOOTH! Speed matters! If a whole tooth has been knocked out –and is reasonably clean– quickly and gently reinsert the tooth into its socket. If you can’t because you’re unsure, it hurts, or you’re just plain squeamish then save the tooth in a cup of milk. Make sure to call us IMMEDIATELY. Time is of the essence, we may be able to restore your natural tooth!
- Broken Teeth – Rinse your mouth with warm water to wash away smaller fragments. If you are bleeding, hold a piece of sterile gauze on the area until bleeding stops. You may use a cld compress to relieve some of the pain and swelling. Call us immediately. We will work quickly to relief your pain, heal your injury, and restore your tooth.
