Handling Common Dental Emergencies

Though we’ll assist you as quickly as possible, it’s important to know what you can do on your own before your appointment time. Below, you’ll find some easy tips to follow for many common types of emergencies.

  • Knocked-Out Teeth: If you have had an impact such as when playing sport and your tooth is knocked out, we can help you. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently with milk or saliva. It should be placed back in the socket. If you’re unable to do so, put it in plastic wrap or a small container with milk and bring it with you to our clinic.
  • Toothache: There are different reasons you may experience a toothache. That throbbing sensation won’t go away until you get the proper treatment. You can find some relief by taking over-the-counter pain medications, rinsing your mouth out with salt water and applying cold compresses to your cheek.
  • Broken Crown or Other Restoration: If possible, place the restoration back into your mouth. It can be cleaned with milk or saliva if need be.

Avoiding Dental Accidents

We recommend that you refrain from chewing hard substances such as ice. Never open packaging with your teeth. If you participate in sport, a custom mouthguard is the best way to protect your oral health.
