How should I manage my emergency until I’m seen?
After you’ve called us to inform us of your emergency, you can try the following tips to manage your emergency:
For A Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm water and gently floss to remove any trapped food particles. Apply a cold compress to the outside of the affected area to alleviate swelling.
For A Chipped or Broken Tooth: Collect any tooth fragments and rinse your mouth gently with warm water. Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and take over-the-counter pain relievers if necessary.
For A Knocked-Out Tooth: Gently rinse the tooth with water, being careful not to touch the root. If possible, reinsert the tooth into the socket or store it in a glass of milk or saline solution. Time is of the essence in saving a knocked-out tooth, so ensure that you call us right away for care.
