Common Dental Emergency FAQ's
If you are experiencing pain you will want to contact Dr. Z immediately to set an appointment. Prior to your appointment, you may want to apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area in order to reduce or prevent swelling. You may also want to take an Ibprofuren (not aspirin, as aspirin may cause excessive bleeding in a dental emergency) to help with the pain.
If your tooth is knocked out, contact Dr. Z immediately for an emergency appointment. Time is of the essence, it is important to see your dentist within an hour of your tooth being knocked out. Handle the tooth with caution as to limit further damage to the root. Always handle the tooth by the crown and not the root. Touching the root can damage the cells necessary for re-attachment to the bone.
If your tooth has been knocked out gentle rinse the tooth in clean water to remove any excess dirt, (do not scrub the tooth as that can cause further damage). Place the cleaned tooth between your cheek and gum to keep it moist. If you cannot put it back in your mouth, find clean gauze to wrap the tooth, and place it in saline solution or milk until your appointment.
If you are experiencing a toothache, contact Dr. Z for an emergency appointment. Prior to your appointment, you will want to rinse your mouth out with warm water to clean it out. Then gently floss your teeth as to remove any food that may be caught between your teeth. Take an Ibuprofen for pain relief, and if you are experiencing swelling use a cold compress on the area you are experiencing the pain.
Use common sense and be cautious in the things you do. For example:
- Avoid chewing, ice, hard candy, and popcorn kernels as all of these can crack a tooth.
- Wear a mouthguard when participating in contact sports.
- NEVER use your teeth to cut things. Use scissors or a tool designed for those tasks.
