Know What to Do in a Dental Crisis
At Konstantine Trichas DDS, LLC, we routinely treat many types of dental emergencies. There’s not a situation that Dr. Trichas and our skilled team haven’t seen. Below are some dental crises that usually require emergency attention, along with the steps you should take before being seen in our office:
- Toothache – Rinse your mouth with warm water. If you have pain or swelling, apply a cold compress on the outside of your cheek.
- Broken Tooth – Retrieve any pieces of tooth and bring them with you to your appointment. Rinse your mouth with warm water and use ice on the outside of your cheek near the injury.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – Put the tooth in a container of milk, salt water, or saliva to preserve it. Be careful not to touch the tooth roots.
- Soft Tissue Damage (Cheek, Lips, Tongue, and Gums) – Rinse your mouth with warm water, then hold moistened gauze or a tea bag on the injury to stop the bleeding.
- Loose Dental Crown – If possible, use a thin layer of dental cement or toothpaste to reattach the crown. If it won’t go back on, bring it with you to your appointment.
