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?
In case your tooth is chipped, rinse your mouth with warm water, and use cold compresses on the tooth. Even though a chipped tooth doesn’t seem like an emergency, see a dentist because an infection can form, causing much more damage.
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. Put the tooth back into its socket and bite down gently if possible, and if not, put it in a milk-filled container. 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?
f you haven’t swallowed your filling, and it’s either ceramic or gold, take it back to the dentist to put it back in its original place. Don’t chew on food on that side of the mouth until you see a dentist to give you a new filling.
Q.What Do I Do if My Crown Is Chipped or Broken?
Crowns can be repaired in some cases, so before your tooth or crown suffer more damage, see a dentist to either repair the old crown, or install a new one.
Q.What Do I Do if My Crown Fell out?
Don’t throw away a crown that fell out. There’s a chance the dentist can put it back into its place if only the cement holding in gave out. See a dentist as soon as possible to avoid the tooth under the crown, or surrounding teeth getting damaged.
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.
Q.What Do I Do if My Braces Are Broken?
If any part of your braces gets broken, the first thing you should do is use orthodontic wax to stop the braces from scratching the insides of your mouth. After that, go to the dentist to repair your braces.
