What is not a
If the problem can be taken care of yourself for a few days without seeing your dentists, it likely isn’t a dental emergency. For example, a chipped or cracked tooth is only an emergency if the fracture is painful or has left you with trauma inside your mouth, or, if you have lost a tooth or filling, you can wait a few days to see your dentist.
What’s the best way to handle
The best thing to do in a dental emergency is to contact your dentist, unless it is extremely severe, then you should go to the emergency room.
Depending on the dental emergency you are experiencing, there may be some things you can do to help ease your pain and help the situation. Some efforts include:
- Dissolve a teaspoon of salt into a mug of warm water and use it as a mouthwash
- If your tooth is knocked out, place it in a glass of milk until you can see your dentist
- Try flossing to eliminate any gum pressure
- Use a cold compress on the swelling or painful area
- Teeth cleaning
- Rinse with diluted Hydrogen Peroxide to kill bacteria
- Take over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate pain
