Coping with a Dental Emergency

When a dental emergency occurs, there are certain steps to help you cope until you can visit your dentist. It is important to remain calm, whether you have a knocked-out tooth or severe tooth pain. Your dentist of general dentistry can address the issue, and until then, you should follow the steps found in the attached video.

If you have a knocked-out tooth, gently rinse it of any dirt, and try to place it back in the empty socket. If it will not go in, then place it in a cup of milk until seeing your dentist. In the event that your tooth is cracked or chipped, gather as many pieces as possible and see your emergency dentist for possible dental bonding.
