Tips and tricks on how to handle and manage the most common dental emergencies and what to do when it happens.

What to do when losing a filling or crown.

Most of the time, the regular wear and tear will cause the filling or crown to fall out. 

This is not a major incident, but it should not be taken too lightly either. If this happens, you might feel some temperature sensitivity around the area. 

To help you with any discomfort, you can rinse your mouth with warm water to try to keep the area clean until the filling or crown gets repaired.

Things to do to alleviate toothache.

Toothaches are common and can happen when you are eating or drinking something hot or cold. There could be many different reasons like infected gums, tooth decay, tooth abscess, exposed roots or something else. 

Essentially, your body is telling you something is wrong with your oral health and needs to be checked by a dentist.

You can try rinsing your mouth with warm water and applying an icepack around the area to relieve the pain. Try to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to avoid any major problems like a root canal.

Broken or Chipped Tooth

If you have chipped teeth, cracked teeth, or broken tooth give us a call right away. This type of dental emergency is very time-sensitive and serious. Try to save the remaining tooth or small chipped part so we can try to restore it. 

We may be able to restore your tooth, but if not possible, we can help you look at other options to replace the permanent tooth.

Knocking a Tooth Out

If your tooth is totally knocked out, you need to try to save the tooth. Your best option is to place the tooth in either milk or salt-water to try to keep the tooth alive.

Call and come to our dental office within an hour and we might be able to save your tooth.

How adults and kids can minimize dental emergencies.

Safety tips for adults.

When eating and chewing hard objects you need to be very careful. If you have recently had large fillings or a root canal, the tooth could be probably weak. 

Another bad habit is using your teeth as a pair of scissors to cut a piece of tape or open a plastic bag of potato chips. Try to avoid this habit since it can really damage your teeth.

Contact sports are another cause of dental emergencies if precarious are not taken. Try to wear sports mouth guards whenever possible to avoid accidents. Our dentist can build you a custom sports mouth guard which will have a perfect fit for your mouth.

Safety tips for kids.

The best way for kids to avoid any dental emergencies is to have good eating habits and daily oral hygiene. 

If they play contact sports, they should wear sports mouth guards to protect their teeth in case of a face injury. 

Avoid hard candies or any other hard foods that can cause their baby tooth to crack.
