What Can I Do In A Dental Emergency?
In a dental emergency, the most important thing that you can do is call InStyle Dental as soon as you or someone else is able to. Tell us that it is an emergency situation, and we will ensure that there is an appointment slot available for you when you come in. Our dental team will then be able to provide you, over the phone, with advice specific to your situation. You will be told how best to manage your situation while you make your way to the clinic.
One of the most common injuries is a tooth that has been knocked-out and there is a very good chance that the tooth can be saved if it is intact. If the tooth is clean, you can insert it back into the socket, holding it firmly in place until you get to us. If it is not clean, preserve the tooth by putting it into milk until you get to the office.
To help relieve pain, a cold compress held onto the outside of your mouth can be helpful. This works for pain, including toothache, broken teeth, and soft-tissue injury. Over-the-counter pain medication can also be taken as directed.
