Are You Suffering From A Dental Emergency?
The actions you take now could mean the difference between a minor repair and one that results in permanent loss of your tooth or worse!
If you're new to the area or your dentist isn't available, it can be stressful finding an emergency dentist.
Don't Worry. You've come to the right place.
At Crestview Dental Group, we are equipped to handle dental emergencies. The actions you take following a dental emergency could make all the difference and we are here to help you in your time of need.
What To Do With A Knocked Out Tooth
The most crucial thing to remember about a knocked out tooth is how to preserve it, especially if you are dealing with a permanent tooth. The key is to keep it moist. Before you pick it up, however, make sure that you can do so from the top of the tooth, not the bottom as you could touch and damage the roots. If you can easily put the tooth back in the socket, do so. If not, place it in your mouth, between your cheek and gums. If that makes you uneasy, you can also store it in a glass of milk.
What To Do With A Cracked Tooth
A cracked tooth is not as serious as a knocked out tooth, but it still requires an emergency dental visit. As soon as you are able, rinse your mouth out with warm water. You should rinse until you can no longer see blood. Once your mouth is clean, apply a clean, cold compress to the area to limit the amount of swelling that occurs as well as reduce pain.
In either of these dental emergencies you should call us and get to the dental office as soon as possible.
