At-Home Emergency Dental Care Treatments
These emergency dental care treatments are only meant as temporary measures, until you are able to visit the dentist at the next available opportunity. Make sure you contact us to book the next available appointment so we can help you with your dental care needs as quickly as possible!
A Tooth is Knocked Out
Rinse the tooth with water and push it back into its socket; visit your dentist immediately.
A Tooth is Broken or Chipped
If the tooth is sharp on your tongue, smooth its edges slightly with a fingernail file; alternatively, use orthodontic wax, which is available at drugstores, to cover the jagged edges.
Use warm salt water as a rinse, then brush and floss your teeth.
A Filling is Lost
Use orthodontic wax, available from drugstores, as a temporary replacement in the gap from which the filling was lost.
Tooth Sensitivity (to cold liquids)
Check your toothpaste: avoid those that focus on tartar control, bleaching, or whitening. Try Sensodyne toothpaste and a daily fluoride rinse.
Crown Falls Out, or Temporary Crown Falls Out.
Place vaseline petroleum jelly inside the crown and seat the crown back onto the tooth.
Food Morsel Caught Between Teeth
Tie a knot in the floss and then try running the floss back and forth until the piece of food is dislodged.[/vc_column_text][padding_spacer space_count=”15″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
