How Can You Prepare for a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency usually involves persistent tooth pain, swelling, a blow to the face or mouth, a knocked-out or loose tooth, or bleeding from the mouth. Being prepared and knowing what to do can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
We recommend keeping our office phone number on hand: (972) 779-0300. In the event of an emergency, contact our office right away. Prompt treatment will help ensure the best possible treatment outcomes. If our office is not open, please head to the nearest emergency room.
What Are Common Dental Emergencies?
Common dental emergencies include a persistent toothache, an abscess, a loose or knocked-out (avulsed) tooth, a broken, fractured, or chipped tooth, soft tissue (lips, cheeks, tongue) injuries, or a lost crown or filling.
Steps you can take before dental treatment include rinsing your mouth and applying a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling. Never place any pain medication directly onto a painful tooth. If there is any bleeding, apply light but firm pressure.
If you knock out a tooth, gently return it to its socket after cleaning it with water, making sure to avoid touching the root. If that is not possible, place it in a container of milk and bring it with you to our office. If you lose a crown or filling, you can use sugarless gum or over-the-counter dental cement to secure your crown or to protect the spot where the filling was lost. Never use super glue.
