Dealing with some dental emergencies
- Broken Tooth-Rinse your mouth out with warm water and apply a cold compress to the affected area.
- Tooth Ache-Gently clean out your mouth with warm water, including the affected area. Gently use dental floss to try to remove any particles from between your teeth. Please do not apply pain medicine to the area. You could damage the gum tissue.
- Tooth Knocked Out-If you have had a tooth knocked out, it is important to be seen right away. Handled correctly, it is possible to save the tooth. Put the tooth in a glass of milk or keep it moist and bring it to our office right away.
