WHAT TO DO IN A DENTAL EMERGENCY
It may be difficult due to the severity of your pain, however the best thing you can do is try to relax. Scheduling an appointment ASAP is important. It’s crucial that our experts assess your situation and determine whether or not you require same-day emergency dental work. If you lose a tooth, retrieve it and place it in a jar of cold milk, or carefully replace it in its socket. You should also retrieve lost dental work or tooth fragments and return them to our office.
Following that, you can take steps to alleviate any pain or discomfort. Bleeding can be stopped by absorbing it with cotton balls or clean gauze. To alleviate discomfort, you can use pain relievers such as acetaminophen. Applying an ice pack may also be beneficial. Please, however, make going to the dentist a top priority.
