What to Do in a Dental Emergency

In a dental emergency, swift action can make a significant difference. Here are steps to take for common dental emergencies:


Toothache: Gently clean the affected area and rinse the mouth with warm water. Use dental floss to dislodge any potential debris. If pain persists, contact us for prompt evaluation.


Chipped or Cracked Tooth: Rinse the mouth with warm water and collect any fragments if possible. Use a cold compress to minimize swelling, and contact us immediately.


Knocked-Out Tooth: Handle the tooth by the crown (top part) and avoid touching the root. Rinse the tooth gently and try to reinsert it in the socket if possible. If not, place it in a container of milk and reach out to us immediately.


Loose or Lost Fillings or Crowns: If a filling or crown becomes loose or falls out, keep the area clean and avoid chewing on that side. Contact us for guidance on the next steps.


Abscesses: Abscesses are signs of infection and require immediate attention. Rinse the mouth with warm salt water and contact us for an emergency appointment.
