Pain is your body's signal that something is wrong. It also means it's time to seek help for something you might have been postponing for awhile. Not sure if your problem is a dental emergency? Below is a list of various dental emergency’s and steps you can take to reduce the discomfort.
Tooth impact and loss – Carefully rinse your tooth without removing any attached tissue. If possible, hold the tooth in place in the socket, or else place the tooth in milk and seek our emergency dental services immediately.
Save any pieces of the broken tooth and rinse your mouth out with warm water. Apply a cold compress to the area to decrease swelling and pain until you can be seen by our restorative dentistry specialist.
If you find a pimple formation or swelling on your gums, rinse with salt water and immediately contact our dental team. Abscesses can lead to more serious infections if not treated promptly.
Lost Dental Filling or Dental Crown
For dental fillings and crowns, a temporary repair can be made using dental cement or sealing the hole with a piece of sugarless gum until our Dentist can perform a permanent replacement or installation.
Rinse your mouth out with warm water. Next, use dental floss to make sure there isn't any food or other debris causing the pain. If the tooth pain persists, call our office.
Protecting your Smile
