Below are some helpful tips if you are in pain or have had an accident.
A Knocked-Out Tooth
Place the tooth back in the mouth where it fell out (if possible), and bite down
gently on gauze or a wet tea bag to hold it in place, being careful not to swallow
the tooth. If the above step is not possible, place the tooth in a container and
cover with a small amount of whole milk or saliva. The tooth can also be carried
between lower lip and lower gum or under the tongue. Call the dentist right away,
it is important to handle this as quickly as possible. Incase of a knocked out tooth check out the American Association of Endodontists' for immediate care.
A Lost Filling
Temporarily seal the exposed cavity with a piece of sugarless gum or
over-the-counter dental cement. For more information on a lost filling check out the Colgate dental care tips.
Rinse your mouth with warm water and floss to remove food particles.
If there is any swelling, apply a cold compress to the area. You can find more information on toothache care here.
Contact our office immediately. If left untreated, an abscess can lead to a
serious infection. Rinse your mouth with a mild saline solution of ½ teaspoon
of salt in 8 ounces of water several times a day. Fore more information on Dental Abscess check out the WebMD's page for care.
If a crown feels loose or becomes detached, carefully attempt to slip it back on.
First, prepare the inside of the crown with over-the-counter dental cement,
denture adhesive or even toothpaste. Otherwise bring the crown with you to our office. If you cannot get to your dentist soon, check out Colgate's Website on what to do with a loose crown.
Save all pieces of the broken tooth and rinse your mouth with
warm water to remove any fragments left. Apply a cold compress to the area. If you have experienced a broken tooth check out the Crest website for more information.
