I have a toothache.
Rinse your mouth with warm water to flush away food particles or debris. If there is swelling, apply a cold compress over the area. Take Advil, Motrin, or Tylenol for pain. If your toothache is accompanied by fever or swelling that interferes with breathing, have someone drive you to the nearest emergency room.
I have a soft tissue injury (lips, cheeks, tongue, or gums).
Injury to the lips, cheeks, tongue, or gums can cause bleeding. Apply a moist gauze pad or tea bag on the area and hold in place for at least 15 minutes. You can also use a cold compress over the cheek to relieve pain and swelling. If bleeding does not stop or is severe, please visit an emergency room immediately.
I have a broken or knocked-out tooth.
Find the broken part, hold it by the top, and rinse it gently to remove dirt. Do not for any reason touch the root of the tooth! Try to place it back in its socket and hold it there; otherwise, place the tooth in a container with saliva or milk. The sooner you see the dentist, the better the chances of reattaching the tooth or having it properly extracted instead.
I have a broken dental appliance.
Don’t try to repair broken dentures or appliances as you might cause further damage. Remove the appliance from your mouth and place it in a container, or try to reposition the broken piece into a more comfortable position. Then give us a call!
