What Should I Do Before Visiting The Emergency Dentist?

Although we do treat same-day emergencies, there are steps you can take before you come to our office.

  • Knocked Out Tooth
    • If you knock out a tooth, do not hold it by the root. The root is extremely sensitive and once damaged, the tooth may not be saved.
    • Try to put the tooth back into the socket.
    • If it won’t stay in the socket, keep the tooth moist. You can do this by placing it between your cheek and gum or in milk.
    • Use a cold compress to stop the bleeding from the socket.
    • See your dentist as soon as possible.
  • Cracked Tooth
    • Rinse with warm water to clean.
    • Apply a cold compress to the cheek to keep down swelling.
    • See your dentist as soon as possible.

  • Abscess
    • An abscess is an infection that can happen around your tooth root or in the gum between your teeth. This is a serious condition that needs professional attention.
    • Rinse with a mild salt-water solution of ½ teaspoon of table salt per eight ounces of water. Use this rinse several times a day.
    • See your dentist as soon as possible.
