  • Lost filling
  • Objects wedged between teeth
  • Swollen or infected gums
  • Abscess

Here are some tips on what you can do before coming in for an emergency visit.

Toothache- If you are suffering from a toothache, call your dentist and set up an appointment immediately. Before visiting the dentist you can use a cold compress on the cheek where the pain is. Also try wash your mouth with warm water to dislodge any food trapped in between your teeth.

Chipped or Broken Tooth- Don’t panic! Call your dentist immediately and rinse your mouth out with warm water. If there are any broken bits try to save them as they can be used by your dentist. If you are experiencing bleeding use some gauze and lightly apply pressure to the broken tooth. A cold compress can be used to manage pain.

Crown Dislodged or Lost- If a crown has been completely dislodged, rinse your mouth with warm salt to remove any dirt or debris. If handy, you can use some dental cement or denture adhesive to fix the crown before visiting the dentist. These products can be found at your local drug store but never use an alternative adhesive like super glue.

Abcess- An oral abcess is a serious condition and should be addressed immediately. These indicate serious infection that can actually spread to the rest of the mouth and body.
