Know What to Do in an Urgent Dental Situation
Over the years, Dr. Ouellette and our staff have seen every type of dental emergency imaginable, including knocked-out teeth. Below are some types of dental crises we routinely treat, along with important steps to take before your emergency appointment:
- Toothache – A toothache could indicate something bigger, such as an infection inside the tooth. First, rinse your mouth with warm water, then apply ice to help reduce any swelling or pain. Call our office so we can get to the root of the problem.
- Broken Tooth – Gather any broken pieces of your tooth, then call our office immediately. Ice will help with pain and swelling. We will likely be able to mend your tooth with a dental crown.
- Lost Filling – As a temporary fix, put a piece of sugar-free gum or dental cement in the empty space. Don’t use sugared gum, as it could cause you pain. Call us as soon as possible so we can repair the tooth.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – Time is of the essence in saving a tooth that has been knocked out. Without touching the roots, place the tooth in a container of milk or salt water to preserve it. Call us immediately so you can have the best chance of saving it.
- Loose or Broken Crown – Try to reattach the crown if possible. First, clean the crown, then place a thin layer of dental cement or toothpaste on the inside surface. Try to secure it over your tooth as best you can. Call us for an appointment so we can repair it properly.
