Dental Emergencies

Knocked out tooth

In case milk is not available, the tooth can be placed in the victim’s own saliva in a cup.

Reminder: DO NOT SCRUB OFF THE TOOTH!!

Severely Bitten Tongue or Lip

If a tongue or lip is cut and bleeding from a bite or accident, use a cold compress to reduce swelling and contact our office.

Broken or Fractured Teeth

For a fractured or broken tooth, it’s best to rinse the mouth with warm water and apply a cold pack or compress. Ibuprofen may be used to help keep down swelling. And contact the office.

Toothaches

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Do not place an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. If the pain is not relieved easily, call our office…please do not wait until the weekend when the pain gets much worse! Contact our office to get into the schedule as soon as possible.

Loosened Baby Tooth

If a child’s baby tooth has been loosened by an injury or a permanent tooth growing in, try getting the child to gently bite down on an apple; in some cases the tooth will easily separate from the gum. Again contact the office if you still need help.
