How to Handle Your Dental Emergency

You need to know what to do until your appointment time. Below, you’ll find instructions on how to deal with common dental emergencies until you can see a dentist.

  • Knocked-out tooth – Retrieve the tooth. If it’s dirty, you can clean it by rinsing it with milk or saliva. Place it back into the socket, and handle the tooth on the upper part, never the roots.
  • A toothache – Take an over-the-counter pain medication to minimise your discomfort. A cold compress on the outside of your cheek may help, too. You can rinse with salt water to cleanse the area and give yourself some relief.
  • Broken crowns, veneers or fillings – It’s best to save any part of your crown, veneer or filling whenever possible. There is a chance it can be reattached. In the case of a crown, you can place it back in your mouth so that the tooth structure it covers isn’t in danger of further damage.
