Are You Experiencing A Dental Emergency?
Some of the most common dental emergencies we see are: toothaches, debris wedged between teeth, cracked teeth, teeth knocked out, and lacerations (cuts) to the gums, tongue or lips. If you or a family member has experienced a mouth injury, here are some helpful tips to keep the patient comfortable until they can see their dentist, and minimize the impact of damage from the injury:
When suffering from a persistent toothache, rinsing the mouth with warm water can help reduce the pain for a short period of time. Be sure not to use cold water! Gently use dental floss to remove any food or debris that may be trapped between the aching tooth and its neighbor. If there is some swelling, use cold compresses on the outside of the cheek for a few minutes at a time. Let us bust a common myth, DO NOT use heat or place an aspirin on an aching tooth or gum tissue; both increase the chances of bleeding. See your dentist as soon as possible.
