Little Girl Experiencing A Toothache Dental Emergency

Common Dental Emergencies and How to Handle Them

  • Toothache: Rinse the mouth with warm water and gently floss around the affected tooth to dislodge any food particles. If the pain persists, contact us immediately.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: Handle the tooth by the crown (avoiding the root), rinse it with water if dirty, and try to reinsert it into the socket. If not possible, place it in a container of milk or saliva and get to our office as soon as possible.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth: Save any broken tooth fragments, rinse the mouth with warm water, and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Contact us for prompt treatment.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: Keep the area clean and avoid chewing on that side of the mouth. Contact us for a replacement as soon as possible.
