Protect Your Smile in an Emergency
We see many different types of dental emergencies at Blankenship Family Dentistry. If you’re in pain, we consider it an emergency. Below are some common problems that require immediate attention, along with critical steps to take before your appointment with us. With all of these emergencies, an over-the-counter pain reliever may help you feel more comfortable. Be sure to take as directed on the package.
- Toothache– A simple toothache could be a sign of a bigger problem, such as an abscess (infection). Rinse your mouth with warm water, then use an ice pack to help with swelling and pain. Call us so we can get you proper care soon.
- Broken or chipped tooth– Save any broken pieces then call us immediately. You can use ice to help with pain and swelling.
- Lost filling– Fill the space with sugar-free gum or dental cement as a temporary measure. Call our office to get permanent repair.
- Loose or dislodged tooth– Call us immediately for an emergency appointment. Apply ice or a cold compress to alleviate pain and swelling.
- Knocked-out tooth– Time is a critical factor in saving your tooth. Retrieve your tooth by the crown (don’t touch the roots) and place it in salt water or milk to preserve it. Call us immediately for an appointment.
- Loose or broken crown– If possible, try to reattach the crown to your tooth. After cleaning it, coat the inside surface with dental cement or toothpaste to keep it in place. Call us for an appointment so we can reattach it.
