Q.What Should I Do if I’m Experiencing a Dental Emergency?

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, the first thing you should do is try to pinpoint which tooth, or which kind of problem you have. Depending on the kind of emergency, you should act accordingly, but the next step should be calling us to locate an emergency dentist near you, and schedule an appointment for you.

Q.What Do I Do if My Tooth Is Chipped?

Q.What Do I Do if My Tooth Is Fractured?

A broken or a fractured tooth can be saved if you don’t wait too long. Rinse your mouth with warm water, and put an ice pack either on your tooth, or face if you have swelling. Call a dentist immediately to stop the crack from spreading and save the tooth.

Q.What Do I Do if My Tooth is Loose?

The only thing you can do if your tooth is loose is not touch it and see a dentist as soon as possible. Depending on the severity, the dentist will either clean it and use antibiotics, use a splint to support it, or pull it out.

Q.What Do I Do if My Tooth Was Knocked out?

If your tooth was knocked out, pick it up by the head and rinse it under warm water. Don’t touch the root while doing it.

In order for the dentist to successfully put the tooth back into its socket, you will need to see one in less than an hour.

Q.What Do I Do if My Filling Fell out?

Q.What Do I Do if My Crown Fell out?

Q.What Do I Do if I Have Facial Swelling?

Facial swelling may be the cause of an abscess, which is an infection inside the tooth. If you are vomiting, have chills, or difficulty breathing or swallowing, see a physician at a nearest hospital instead of a dentist. If your symptoms are not so severe, a dentist is a better option to help you.

Jaw pain, bad breath, bleeding gums, or difficulty opening your mouth are all symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth. Visit a dentist to extract the impacted tooth, before it damages other teeth.

First try gently flossing around the tooth just in case some food is lodged there. Rinse your mouth with warm water, or even with salt dissolved in it.
