A Few Tips and Tricks For Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can occur for various reasons, and depending on your specific situation, a few tips and tricks can be quite helpful.

  • Be sure to call a dentist for direction and schedule availability
  • If possible, gently reinsert a knocked-out tooth or store it in milk or a saline solution
  • For patients experiencing bleeding in the teeth or gums, apply a gauze pad and gently bite down
  • Over-the-counter, anti-inflammatory medication may help with pain in the gums, jaws, oral tissues and other parts of the face (please consult a doctor before taking any medication)
  • Rinse mouth with lukewarm saltwater in the case of sore teeth or gums
  • Elevate your head and use ice to treat inflammation
