Below, you will find guides on what to do in case of the most common dental emergencies.
Knocked out tooth?
Contact your dentist immediately to make an emergency appointment. The quicker a tooth that has been knocked out is replaced, the more likely the tooth is to fix itself back in the gum.
What to do; Soak your tooth in milk, hold it by the crown and avoid touching the roots If you can, replace the tooth back in to its position If you are unable replace the tooth, place it in a clean container with milk or your saliva
Again, immediate professional treatment is vital if you encounter any damage to a tooth or teeth. Fractures or chips can result in the pulp inside your tooth getting damaged which may cause problems in the future. Your dentist can prevent the damage from getting worse.
What to do; Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as you can Place a cold pack over the cheek or lips on the affected area Use warm water to thoroughly rinse your mouth Place any fragments found in milk or your saliva
If you encounter a toothache, call us right away. We will accommodate you as soon as we can.
What to do; See your dentist as soon as you can Gently rinse your mouth with warm water regularly If there are obvious cavities, clean any debris from them If there are trapped food particles, remove them with floss Use a cold pack on the outside of your mouth to reduce any swelling Take pain relief if necessary
