How to Deal with 3 Common Emergency Dental Concerns

When faced with a dental emergency, the first thing you must do is locate an emergency dentist Collingdale. Until you can be treated by the emergency dentist, follow these simple tips for common emergency dental problems.

Tips for a Toothache

One of the most frequent emergency dental problems is a toothache. It tends to be a symptom of other dental issues and requires professional care. But if you can’t see an emergency dentist Collingdale right away, keep rinsing your mouth with warm water. If your toothache is caused by something caught in your teeth, you can also try gently using dental floss to remove painful particles.

Your Needs with Knocked out Teeth

Having a tooth fall out can be a traumatic experience, yet there are ways to help save the tooth before you see an emergency dentist, including these strategies:

  • Try putting the tooth right back in its normal position in your mouth.
  • Keep the tooth moist by holding it between your teeth and gums.
  • Put the tooth in a glass of milk to keep it in the best possible condition.

Caring for a Cracked Tooth

There’s no denying that a cracked tooth calls for an emergency dentist. But to help reduce the pain until you can get treatment, keep rinsing your mouth with warm water. And soothe any swelling by applying cold compresses to your face.
