While the best option in a dental emergency is to get in to see us immediately to ensure that we avoid any unnecessary complications, there are some things that can be done in emergencies to minimize trauma.
If an adult/permanent tooth has been knocked out, DO NOT scrub it or clean it with soap! Gently rinse it in water and attempt to place it back in the socket and hold it there with firm pressure. If you are unable to place to tooth back, then place the tooth in a container of “Save-A-Tooth” solution: milk, saliva, or at worst, in water. Please try to come in to see us as soon as possible!!
If a primary/baby tooth is knocked out it is best to not try to place it back in the socket. Sometimes this can affect the permanent tooth that is developing underneath.
If you or anyone in your family has developed a toothache, abscess, or have even had any trauma to the mouth a warm compress or ice pack can help reduce any possible swelling. Over the counter anti-inflammatory pain medication is usually the most effective in controlling any tooth pain.
