THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN THERE'S A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
It is important to act quickly and calmly when you have a dental emergency. A knocked out, cracked or loose tooth can potentially be salvaged if handled with care.
If it is cracked or loose, very gently hold it in place until you reach us. A knocked out tooth should be handled by the crown, not the root. Try to carefully put the tooth back in the empty space in your mouth and hold it in place with clean gauze or cloth. If the tooth is dirty or replanting is not possible, put it in a glass of milk. Do not let the tooth dry out. Time is critical with a missing tooth, you have about 15-30 minutes before it’s considered unsalvageable.
With any tissue injuries, such as cuts, tears and lacerations to the cheek, lip or tongue, rinse the wound carefully with water then apply firm gentle pressure to stop bleeding. If the injury is significant, go to the hospital immediately.
If you have a toothache, rinse with warm salt water or floss to try and dislodge any trapped food. If you have any swelling to the face area, try applying a cool compress and take acetaminophen (Tylenol) for the pain until you can get to a dentist.
