Basic First Aid for some dental emergencies:
Broken or cracked Tooth – Rinse mouth with warm water and then apply cold compression to affected area to help with any swelling as well as to clean the affected area. Bring any broken piece with you in damp cloth or napkin.
Knockout Tooth – Rinse the tooth and try to place it back into the socket and hold it there. If this is not possible, place the tooth in a container with milk and bring it with you to our office. Avoid Aspirin or Ibuprofen, as they can cause excessive bleeding
Toothache – Rinse mouth with warm water. Apply ice to the area for 10 or 15 minutes. You may use Aspirin or Ibuprofen to assist with the pain while you make your way to our office.
Lost crown or filling – cover the area of the lost crown or filling with over-the-counter tooth cement and place the crown or filling back in place. This will hold the filling or crown until you arrive at our office. If tooth cement is not available, use petroleum jelly instead. Avoid drinking or eating until you visit our office.
Dental abscess (pimple-like swelling of the gums) – rinse mouth with salt water to help relieve the pain. Untreated dental abscess can lead to a serious infection.
