Knowing what to do in a dental emergency can be the difference between saving and losing a tooth. If you are suffering persistent toothache it is a sign that something is wrong. Don’t wait for the pain to become unbearable. Visit the dentist today.
In the event that you lose a tooth, hold the tooth by the crown and rinse off the tooth root. If possible gently replace the tooth into the socket and gently hold the tooth in place. If you cannot replace the tooth place it gently in a glass of milk and get to the dentist within half an hour. The quicker you get to the dentist with your tooth, the great chance you have of saving your tooth.
For a broken tooth, you will need to rinse your mouth with warm water to clean your mouth. Then place a cold compress on the area in order to minimise the swelling. If possible, get someone to call the dentist as you’re doing this; if no one is around follow these steps and then call the dentist.
When experiencing toothache, it is better to be safe than sorry. The ‘I’ll wait and see what happens’ attitude could be a costly one. When you experience toothache you should rinse your mouth in warm water and gentle floss around the tooth to ensure there’s nothing stuck between your teeth.
Do not put any sort of painkiller against the gum near the aching tooth because it could burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, call the dentist.
