Tips for Dental Emergencies
If a permanent tooth is knocked out
See your dentist immediately. Keep the tooth in a cup of milk or wrapped with a wet paper towel until you arrive at the dentist office. Only handle the tooth by the crown, not the root.
When a tooth is chipped
Try to locate the chip and keep it moist. See your dentist as soon as possible.
For a cracked tooth
Rinse your mouth with warm water to help clean the area. You may use a cold compress to keep the swelling down. See your dentist right away.
If you have a toothache
Rinse your mouth with warm water. You may try to gently use dental floss to remove any food stuck between the teeth. See your dentist as soon as possible.
For objects stuck in the mouth
Try to gently remove with floss. Do not use a sharp or pointed instrument, as this could cause further damage. See your dentist as soon as possible.
