Advice for Handling Dental Emergencies

If you, a friend, or a loved one are experiencing a dental emergency, here is some advice for handling the situation on your own until you can get professional help:

  • So long as the tooth is not damaged, try to put the tooth back in its socket as quickly as possible.
  • If unable to place the tooth back in its socket, store it in a bag filled with milk.
  • Rinse the affected area with warm water.
  • Use gauze or clean bandages to stop any bleeding.
  • Beyond this, don’t wait, contact our office and get the urgent care you need
