Dental Emergencies Treatment
Dental emergencies can occur from accidents that crack or knock teeth out. Sometimes we can wait to go to the dentist but if severe, such as a tooth totally out try to put it back in the socket by biting on a moisten gauze or wet tea bag. Then handle it as little as possible so as not to swallow it. If that fails rinse it & keep in milk or your saliva while applying cold, wet compresses to stop the bleeding.
If you feel severe pain, call our dental office even if after hours for a quick appointment on our emergency slots. If all else fails go the ER to get pain medication & an evaluation of your lesion or condition or even dental treatment by a resident oral surgeon.
