The most common dental emergencies include severe toothaches, broken teeth, and knocked-out teeth. The first and best thing to do is to contact our office for more detailed instructions.
Here are some basic instructions for these types of emergencies:
For severe tooth pain, try taking over-the-counter pain medication, placing an icepack over the pained area, and rinsing your mouth with saltwater. If you don’t find relief, contact our office as soon as possible.
For broken or knocked-out teeth, patients should locate any fractured tooth fragments, place them in a container of milk or saline, and bring them with you to the dentist’s office.
