What to Do in a Dental Emergency
In a dental emergency, time is of the essence! It’s important to act quickly to minimize damage to the tooth or teeth.
Here are some tips to help you manage a dental emergency before you can get to your emergency dentist:
Broken Tooth or Teeth: Using warm water, gently rinse your mouth. Save any broken pieces of tooth you can find, and bring them to your emergency dentist.
Severe Toothache: Rinse your mouth with warm water. Try to remove any small food particles or other debris that may be stuck around the tooth using dental floss. If the pain doesn’t go away, call Dr. Cummings, your emergency dentist, immediately.
In a dental emergency, it’s important to seek immediate care from an emergency dentist like Dr. Cummings. Delaying treatment can result in further dental damage and can increase your risk of developing serious oral health problems down the road.
