First aid for dental emergencies
These tips may be helpful until you are able to see the dentist:
- Avulsed (knocked-out) tooth – Handle by the crown only. Place it back into the socket, if possible. Otherwise, hold it between cheek and gums, or put it in a cup of milk.
- Broken tooth – Rinse your mouth with a warm salt water solution, and use cold compresses on the face to reduce swelling.
- Acute toothache – Floss gently. Over the counter analgesics may be taken orally, but do not place them on the tooth or gums. Avoid hot, cold, or sweet foods and beverages.
- Soft tissue injury – Clean blood or debris from the wound with water, and use a cold compress to control bleeding. If bleeding is profuse, please go to the nearest hospital emergency department!
With good oral habits and regular checkups, you may never need emergency dental care. If you do, the caring staff of University Dental in Middletown is here to help. Call (855) 908 3676.
