Here are just a few dental emergencies that you may experience.

Follow these tips until you can see our dentist:

  • Tips For a Toothache
    • Rinse your mouth with a warm saltwater mixture.
    • Apply ice or a cold compress to ease pain and swelling.
    • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever that could be a pill or capsule, however, never apply it directly on the tooth.
    • Contact our dentist as soon as possible to find out what the problem could be.
  • Tips For a Knocked Out Tooth
    • Gargle your mouth with warm water.
    • Retrieve the tooth entirely or the broken piece, carefully rinse it to remove debris and try placing it back into its socket.
    • If it doesn't work, place it in a bottle of milk or salt and water.
    • Contact your dentist as soon as possible, since it can be saved within an hour it was dislodged.
  • Tips For a Lost Dental Filling
    • The faster you realize that you lost a dental filling the better it is to cover the exposed area.
    • Use sugar-free gum to cover the exposed cavity. Over-the-counter dental cement would also be fine to use as well.
    • Contact your dentist as soon as possible to have the matter attended to, even with over-the-counter cement covering.
  • Tips For a Lost Dental Crown
    • You can use over-the-counter dental cement or toothpaste and try to reattach the crown to the exposed tooth.
    • If you are experiencing pain, apply clove oil to it.
    • Contact your dentist as soon as possible so that the crown can be reattached to the tooth. If it can’t be reattached, we can replace it.
  • Tips For Broken Braces/Wires
    • Gently push the broken braces or wire with the eraser end of a pencil. If you can’t push it back into place, use orthodontic wax or a piece of gauze to cover up the broken end.
    • Never cut the broken end of the wires with scissors since it can be swallowed.
    • Contact your dentist right away to have the matter attended to.
  • Tips For an Abscess
    • Mix warm water with salt and gargle it to ease the pain in the affected area of your mouth.
    • Gargle the salted water mix a few times a day, it helps to kill the bad bacteria and infection.
    • See your dentist as soon as possible since abscesses can infect your other oral tissues and turn the problem into something more serious.
