In a dental emergency, there are several things you can do to ensure that you save your teeth and your oral health. We’ll try our best to get you feeling better in just one visit, and to be sure we can help as best we can, there are some steps you can take to make sure your visit goes smoothly:

I’ve Lost a Tooth!

If you’ve lost a tooth, we can save it! Make sure you’re careful when handling it and follow these steps:

  • Only hold the tooth by the crown, never the root! You want to keep it as clean as possible!
  • Wash the tooth off in cool water, making sure to clear off any dirt or debris.
  • Don’t remove any tissue still attached to the tooth – it may be needed to successfully reattach it!
  • Place the tooth in a glass of milk to keep it safe. If you don’t have any access to milk, place the tooth in your cheek.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever to relieve pain, but avoid aspirin – it will thin your blood and prevent clotting.
  • Ice the area to reduce any swelling.

I’ve Fractured A Tooth!

If you’ve fractured a tooth but it’s still mostly in place there are steps you can take to make the restoration process easier:

  • Try to gather up all the pieces of the tooth and place them in an envelope or other safe place.
  • If there are any sharp edges on your tooth, cover them with wax, gauze, or cotton to protect yourself from a cut.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever to relieve pain, but avoid aspirin – it will thin your blood and prevent clotting.
  • Ice the area to reduce any swelling.

I Have A Toothache!

There can be a lot of causes to a toothache, but we are prepared to treat you and relieve your pain today! Take these steps to relieve your pain and get feeling better before we see you:

  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever, especially an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen or tylenol.
  • If you have any swelling, ice the area to bring it down. This can help relieve pain too.
  • Wash your mouth out with warm salt water. If you have an infection, this can help clean it out and start the healing process.
