How to Treat Dental Emergencies
There are steps you can take to preserve your oral health when you or a loved one has a dental emergency.
- Toothache: A toothache can be a sign of several different issues, so it is recommended that you visit your Houston emergency dentist at Cabrera Dental Associates as soon as possible to have the area examined if the problem persists. In the meantime, a cold compress can help alleviate pain and discomfort, as well as over-the-counter painkillers.
- Sore gums: As with a toothache, sore or swollen gums should get checked out by your dentist promptly. It can help to relieve pain or discomfort by rinsing the mouth with warm saltwater. Make sure that there is no food lodged in between the teeth. Painkillers can also help.
- Cracked/broken tooth: If a tooth has been damaged in some way, applying a dental cement can help both to alleviate pain and to preserve the tooth until you can have it treated. The crack or fracture may not be visible, but sudden tooth sensitivity is a sign that there is damage to the tooth.
- Knocked-out tooth: To save a tooth that has been knocked out completely from the mouth and attempt to put it back in place, it is important to preserve it the best you can. Rinse it off without handling the tooth roots, keep it in a container of milk or saliva, and bring it with you when you see the emergency dentist near you.
