WHAT TO DO IN A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
Sometimes accidents happen that involve the teeth.
Here is what you should do immediately if any of these dental emergencies occur.
A broken or dislocated jaw requires prompt medical attention because of the risk of breathing problems or bleeding. Call your local emergency number (such as 911) or local hospital for further advice.
Temporarily bandaging the jaw (around the top of the head) to prevent it from moving may help reduce pain.
TOOTH KNOCKED OUT:
Knocked-out tooth? Quick action can help you save your tooth! In order for the tooth to take root again, it is crucial for the tooth to be put back in its socket within 10 minutes. If that is not possible, put the loose tooth in a container filled with milk and come call to see us immediately. The chances of the tooth taking root again after 2 hours is poor.
