There are a few things you can do to lessen the severity of your dental emergency and ultimately, save your tooth before you visit our office. Here are a few tips that might help you treat your dental emergency:
- Knocked Out Tooth | If your tooth has been knocked out, you have a couple of options to help preserve your tooth. The most effective way to salvage a knocked out tooth is to place it back in its socket and gently hold it into place. First, rinse the tooth off with cold water. Be careful not to touch the tooth root as you do so. This can cause permanent damage to the tooth. If you cannot place it back in its socket, put the tooth in a container filled with cold milk. Once you have stored your tooth in a safe place, please contact us as soon as possible.
- Broken Jaw | If you think you may have broken your jaw, apply a cold compress on your way to the nearest emergency room, urgent care center, or your regular doctor’s office
- Broken Teeth | If one of your teeth breaks, collect the broken pieces and store them in a safe place. Apply a cold compress to help bring down swelling. Call us immediately and be sure to bring the tooth pieces with you to your appointment.
- Chipped Teeth | Unfortunately, chipped teeth can result in permanent tooth disfigurement. If you are able to locate the broken piece, please store it in a safe place. Call us immediately, so that we can repair your tooth. We may be able to put it back together.
