Have A Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies can be very painful and interrupt your daily activities. Here are some dental emergencies that we can assist you with:
What to Do In Case of Dental Emergency
A dental emergency can also bring excruciating pain from one moment to the next. That is why it’s crucial that you first and foremost remain calm. Panicking will only make matters worse. Secondly, you should find a pain reliever. If you are bleeding, it might be smart to avoid ibuprofen or aspirin because they are anticoagulants and will cause more bleeding. Acetaminophen is good for pain relief if you are bleeding.
If you have knocked out a tooth, try to put it back in the socket and gently bite down so that it does not fall out. If you can not do this, remember to save the tooth in milk and go immediately to the dentist. The longer you wait, the more likely the chances are of the tooth breaking. Another good thing to do is to rinse your mouth out with salt water. Salt water helps to reduce any swelling that might occur.
