Take Steps Now to Protect Your Smile
At Brian Davey DDS, we focus on preventive dental care that helps reduce the number of dental emergencies we see. However, they are unfortunately a fact of life.
Generally speaking, if you’re in pain, then it’s an emergency. Below are several common dental crises and important steps to take if you’re faced with them:
- Toothache. A simple toothache could be a sign of something bigger, such as an abscess. Call us soon for treatment before your situation turns into a more painful problem. In the meantime, use a warm water rinse to help reduce pain. Then apply an ice pack to the area to reduce swelling and help with pain.
- Loose tooth. Use a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling. Call us for an appointment as soon as possible.
- Knocked-out tooth. Call us immediately so we can get you proper care to save your tooth. Retrieve the tooth (touch only the crown, not the roots) and place it in a small container of milk or salt water to preserve it.
- Loose or broken crown. Try to replace the crown if possible, using dental adhesive or toothpaste to help secure it in place. Call for an appointment so we can do permanent repair on it.
