How to Manage Emergency Dental Situations

If you find yourself in an emergency dental situation, the guide below can help you manage the situation:

  • Knocked-out tooth: Rinse off without touching the root and put it back in the mouth or in milk. Get treatment within 30 minutes.
  • Severe toothache: Rinse mouth with warm water and around the area. Apply a cold compress for swelling and take over-the-counter medication for pain.
  • Dental abscess: If you see a pimple-like object on your gums, call immediately. If it is an abscess, the infection could spread into the face, jaw, or blood system, causing severe issues.
  • Swollen mouth or jaw: Call immediately into the office as this could be a sign of a life-threatening infection.
  • Cracked or broken tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water and use a cold compress until you can get to the office. Bring any tooth pieces you can.
  • Lost crown or filling: Temporarily use over-the-counter dental cement or sugarless gum until you can get to the office.
