Dental Emergency Treatments

In case of a dental emergency, it is crucial to remain calm and take immediate action to ensure proper care and minimize any potential complications. Here's what you should do:

Assess the Severity

The first step is determining the severity of the issue. Minor problems like a chipped tooth may require less urgent attention than severe pain or excessive bleeding.

Contact Your Dentist

The first step is to reach out to your dentist as soon as possible. Explain the situation clearly, providing details about the problem or discomfort you are experiencing.

Handle a Knocked-out Tooth

If your tooth gets knocked out, carefully pick it up by the crown without touching the root. Place the tooth back into its socket if possible, holding it gently until you can see our dentist.

Manage a Cracked Tooth

In case of a cracked tooth, rinse your mouth gently with warm water and apply cold compresses on the affected area externally to reduce swelling. Avoid biting down on hard foods or objects.

Control Bleeding

If excessive bleeding occurs, use clean gauze pads to apply firm but gentle pressure directly on the area for about 10-15 minutes. This will help promote clot formation and stop bleeding.

Relieve Pain

To alleviate dental pain temporarily before reaching professional help, over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen can be taken following manufacturer instructions.
