Be Ready for Any Dental Emergency

dca-blog_dental-emergencies-first-aid-kit

Experiencing a dental emergency can be frightening. Emergencies can occur at any time with no warning, and they are often serious and painful. If you’ve broken a tooth, lost a crown, bitten your cheek, or experienced a traumatic injury to your teeth or face, knowing what to do in the first few minutes after the event can help you to save your tooth or prevent serious medical complications. The following guidelines can help you manage a dental crisis until you are able to see an emergency dentist for professional assistance.

Misaligned or Loose Tooth

If a tooth becomes loose or moves out of position, try to reposition it gently. Never force the tooth back into place. Contact your dentist immediately.

Fractured Tooth

If you think your tooth has been fractured, rinse with warm water, and apply an ice pack to your face to lessen swelling. Take ibuprofen for pain if necessary; don’t use aspirin. See your dentist as soon as possible to determine if restorative procedures are needed.

Knocked-Out Tooth

The first priority in saving a knocked-out tooth is to get to your dentist within the first hour, when you have the best chance of success. Handle the tooth by its crown only; never touch the root. Rinse the tooth gently, but don’t rub or scrub it. Keep it moist; if you can’t replace it in the mouth, wrap it in gauze and store it in milk or salt solution.

Injury to Soft Tissue

Cuts, tears, and lacerations can be serious if bleeding is severe. Clean the wound with warm water, and take the victim to an oral surgeon for emergency dental services or to an emergency room for care.

Prepare a Dental Emergency Kit

A dental emergency kit should include the following items:

  • Contact information for your dentist in Citrus Park
  • Contact information for emergency dental services
  • Acetaminophen or ibuprofen (not aspirin)
  • Saline solution
  • Sterile gauze
  • Small container with lid
  • Clean handkerchief
