How To Deal with a Dental Emergency
Rinse your mouth with warm water and gently use some floss or an interdental brush to get rid of food and debris. This ensures that the tooth area remains clean.
It’s important to not put painkillers near the gums of the aching tooth as it may cause burns to gum tissue.
Clean the area with warm water and cover the tooth in a sterile gauze to protect it from exposure to germs.
Visit your dentist immediately after adding a cold compress to your face to reduce the swelling.
Ensure that you can find the tooth. Often it gets stuck in the gums so be sure to check here. Keep the tooth moist by placing the lost tooth back into its socket.
If it is not possible to place it back in the socket, then put it in a glass of milk. Seek dental treatment immediately.
If you have chipped, broken, or lost a tooth it’s best to book an appointment with us as soon as possible.
If you’re worried about affording the emergency treatment, we offer comprehensive payment options which can spread the cost across a length of time and can be discussed during your visit.
