Here is a list of the most dental emergencies and corresponding tips on how to deal with them properly.
Broken tooth – In the event of a broken or damaged tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the affected area. Make sure to continuously put cold compresses on the affected area of the face to reduce swelling. Go to the dentist immediately for the emergency dental procedure dentists are trained to perform for these particular cases.
Bitten tongue or lip – Most cases of bitten tongue, lip, or even cheek can heal on its own. Just clean the area gently with a cloth and apply cold compress to keep the swelling down. However, if there is profuse bleeding that does not stop in a short time, you may go to the dentist or a hospital emergency department for medical care.
Toothache – Rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Try using dental floss to remove any food particle that may have been trapped in between the affected teeth. Whatever you do, and contrary to popular belief, do not attempt to put aspirin on an aching tooth or gum tissue. If the pain still lingers for an hour or so, you may see your emergency dentist as soon as possible.
Objects caught between teeth – If you have a fish bone or something stuck in between your teeth, try to gently remove the object with a dental floss. If unsuccessful, visit your emergency dentist so he or she can remove it for you. Whatever, you do, do not try to remove it with a sharp or pointed instrument, unless you want two dental emergencies at once.
Knocked-out tooth – Try to hold the tooth by the crown and rinse the root of the tooth in warm water if it’s dirty or drenched in blood. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If it is possible, gently insert the knocked out tooth in its socket and hold in its position while you make your way to the dentist. If it is no longer possible, you may drop the tooth in a cup of milk and bring it with you to the dentist. Go as soon as possible.
Possible broken jaw – Apply cold compresses to control swelling and do not waste precious seconds, go to your dentist or a hospital emergency department immediately.
