Tips for Common Dental Emergencies
Village Green Dental Care wants to help you reduce the panic and stress during a dental emergency, so we’ve provided a few helpful tips when common ailments and injuries strike:
If you or one of your children loses a permanent tooth, do your best to keep that tooth moist while you’re in transit to see the dentist. One way to do this to place the tooth back in its socket, but if that’s painful, you can hold it between your cheek and gums. When these options aren’t possible, you can place it in milk, which improves the chance we can save the tooth.
If you bite your lip or tongue or crack a tooth, be sure to rinse out your mouth using warm water and then apply a cold compress to help reduce the swelling. In the case of a toothache or an object getting stuck in your mouth, use floss to clean the affected area and remove the debris gently.
You can help protect your teeth by wearing a mouthguard during sports and other physical activities. If you play sports, let our office know, and we’ll gladly create a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect your mouth from damage. Additionally, you should avoid using your teeth to tear or cut objects.
Don’t Wait to Get Treatment
