Dental Emergency Tips

Toothache – Rinse your mouth out with warm water.  Gently floss around the tooth to ensure that there is nothing stuck between your teeth causing pain.  If tooth pain persists, contact your dentist as soon as possible.

EmergencyDentistBitten Tongue/Lip – Wipe the affected area with a clean cloth.  Apply a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling.  If the wound bleeds excessively, go to the nearest emergency room.

Broken Tooth – Rinse your mouth out with warm water.  If swelling occurs, apply a cold compress to the area.  Contact your dentist immediately.

Tooth Knocked Out – If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it with water.  Be careful not to scrub off any attached tissue fragments.  If possible, gently place the tooth back into the socket.  If you are unable to do that, put your tooth in a cup of milk.  Contact your dentist immediately and be sure to bring your tooth with you.

Something Stuck Between Teeth – Gently try to remove the item with dental floss.  If you are unable to dislodge the item yourself, contact your dentist.
