Steps to Take While Awaiting Care
Between experiencing your emergency and receiving care there are a few steps you can take to alleviate discomfort and protect the affected area. For pain, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers according to the instructions. If you’ve lost a tooth, put the tooth back in the socket if possible and hold it there until you receive care. Otherwise, place the tooth in a small container of milk to preserve it. You can rinse it with water before doing this but don’t remove any tissue that’s still attached. We may be able to put the tooth back in place if we can treat you promptly.
Dental Emergency or Medical Emergency?
PLEASE NOTE: If you’re having neck or head pain, are bleeding uncontrollably, are feeling dizzy, or have suffered severe trauma, please seek immediate medical attention by calling 911 or by getting transportation to the nearest medical facility. Medical personnel are best equipped to assist you with symptoms such as these.
