What To Do In A Dental Emergency
Emergency visits are commonly needed for toothaches. Many times a toothache is caused by an infection or injury. Carefully flossing on either side of the tooth that is hurting may remove any food that is in-between the teeth. You can also rinse your mouth with warm salt water to help treat any infection. If your toothache goes away, it is still a good idea to be seen by your dentist to ensure that the pain will not come back.
If you have a broken tooth or lost tooth, your dentist may be able to save your tooth if you are able to be seen quickly. While waiting for your visit, you can preserve a lost tooth by not touching the roots, handling it with care, and placing it in-between your gums and lip. You can also save a tooth by soaking it in milk or placing it back in the socket carefully. If you have any questions before visiting, don’t hesitate to call! Our team will answer any questions you have over the phone.
When you visit our office, your dentist will examine the area that is in pain first. Once the pain has been treated, your dental emergency can be diagnosed and treatment may be recommended. Treating the problem is important so that your pain doesn’t return.
