How To Treat A Dental Emergency
Severe toothaches and failed crowns or dental fillings are the most common dental emergencies. Both of these problems will cause serious pain. You can ease it with over-the-counter pain relievers, but be sure to see Dr. Herko as soon as possible. She’ll be able to fix the damage and get you out of pain quickly.
If a tooth has been chipped, broken or knocked out, stay calm. Find the tooth, rinse it with clean water, and try to place it back in its socket. If that’s not possible, or you only have part of the tooth, keep it in a clean container with your saliva or milk. Do not let it dry out. Use a sterile gauze and gentle pressure to stop any bleeding, and see Dr. Herko right away.
