How to handle common dental emergencies:

  • Toothache : You will need to floss your teeth and rinse your mouth with warm water to remove debris. If your cheek is swollen, use a cold compress to help the swelling. Gel painkillers, however, should not be used.
  • Chipped or broken tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water to remove debris, and use a cold compress on your cheek to ease pain. Anti-inflammatory medication may be taken, but do not use aspirin or a gel painkiller.
  • Knocked-out tooth: To save a knocked-out tooth, quick treatment is vital. Pick the tooth up - do not touch the root - and rinse it with water. Leave tissue fragments as untouched as possible. If you can, place the tooth back in the socket, or in a cup of saltwater. Bring your tooth with you to your emergency appointment.
  • Abscess: An abscess results in sore or swollen gums that can be relieved with a saltwater rinse.
  • Soft tissue injury: Use gauze to control any bleeding - apply pressure to the injured area for 15-20 minutes. Pain can be relived with a saltwater rinse and a hot compress.
