How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

For any dental emergency, the best way to handle it is to simply contact our dental office right away. Explain your situation, and our team will walk you through first-aid tips and let you know if you should come to see us immediately. In the meantime, here are a few simple ways to manage some of the most common emergencies:

Toothaches

Thoroughly clean around the tooth to remove any food debris that might be stuck and causing the problem. If this doesn’t fix it outright, go ahead and take an OTC medication. Be sure to come see us right away even if the toothache is minor, as even slight pain could indicate a serious problem!

Chipped/Broken Tooth

Recover as many pieces of the tooth that you can, put them in a safe container, and remember to bring them to our dental office. In most cases, we should be able to repair the tooth with a crown, but if the trauma is too extensive, we may be forced to remove it.

Learn About Tooth Extractions

Knocked-Out Tooth

Find the tooth, rinse it off with water while avoiding the root, and place it under your tongue. This will help keep the tooth alive so we can replant it. Try to move fast in this situation, as the ideal time to splint a tooth is within an hour or so of the initial accident.

Lost Filling/Crown

Find the restoration if you can, and place it back onto your tooth using a small dab of toothpaste. Don’t chew with that part of your mouth until we can see you. If you start to develop any pain or sensitivity, take an OTC medication.

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

Many patients put off getting urgent dental care because they believe it will be too expensive. This is always a mistake! Waiting will only allow a problem to become worse, leading to more pain while also increasing the chances that an expensive procedure will be needed. Acting quickly is best for both your smile and your wallet. And, at Creating Smiles, PC, you can schedule a same-day emergency appointment for as little as $29!
