Here’s some information that can help you if you have a dental emergency…
Do You Have a Broken or Knocked Out Tooth?
What most people don’t realize is that an injured tooth begins to die within 15 to 30 minutes of impact. That’s why it’s critical to see your dentist right away after any tooth trauma. Knowing what to do when dental accidents occur can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth. Here are a few tips:
If you break a tooth…
Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce any swelling, then call a 24 hour emergency dentist to make an immediate appointment. If you can find the broken part of your tooth, be sure to take it with you.
If your tooth is knocked out…
Pick it up by the top, not the root, and don’t rinse it or remove any attached bits of tissue. If you can, carefully re-insert the tooth into its socket and gently hold it in place. If that’s not possible, put it in a cup of milk or saline solution, or hold it between the cheek and gums so it doesn’t dry out. Then call a 24 hour emergency dentist as quickly as possible.
If you are experiencing significant pain you should avoid using aspirin as it can cause additional bleeding. Instead use Ibuprofen to treat your pain. Never apply any pain killer to the gum near the injured tooth as this can lead to burning of the gum tissue. Also, never rely on solely on pain medication. While it can help to eliminate the pain, it will not treat the cause of it. We will need to examine your mouth to determine the correct treatment to use for your injury.
