What Does a Dental Emergency Look Like?
There are a few different kinds of dental emergencies. Facial trauma can knock out or dislodge your teeth. A tooth can fracture by biting down on something hard. Sometimes, restorative dental devices such as bridges fall out of the mouth. No matter what kind of dental emergency you’re experiencing, contact Stettler Dental to set up an appointment as soon as possible.
How to Handle a Dental Emergency
If a tooth has been knocked out, rinse it with lukewarm water and place it back in the socket, ensuring that you only hold the crown. You can also submerge the tooth in milk if it doesn’t stay in the socket. If your tooth is partially dislodged, gently push it back into place. If that isn’t effective, you can bite down on it gently until you arrive at our practice.
If you’re experiencing pain, we recommend taking Ibuprofen. Use an ice pack to reduce any swelling. If the pain is severe, be sure to contact Stettler Dental immediately.
Dental emergencies almost always require treatment from a professional. If professional treatment is not done as quickly as possible, your dental health might be in jeopardy. Contacting Stettler Dental is necessary to prevent further damage and alleviate your pain.
