Is Emergency Dentistry Right for Me?
Many people think they should only seek immediate dental care after a sudden impact or trauma. While you should absolutely get to the dentist’s office after going through such an event, other issues should receive emergency attention as well. We recommend coming in for treatment immediately if you’re experiencing one or more of the following:
How to Handle Knocked-Out Teeth
If your tooth gets knocked out, you might panic. However, you can do a few vital things in the aftermath to save your tooth or at least reduce its impact on your oral health.
- If you can, pick up the tooth by the crown. Never pick it up by the root.
- Call your dentist and schedule an emergency appointment or have someone else call.
- Softly rinse the tooth in cold water or milk and remove any dirt or debris.
- After rinsing, put the tooth back in its socket if possible. Hold it firmly in place with gauze or a towel.
- Get yourself to the dentist as quickly as possible, or have someone else take you, while keeping the tooth safe.
