HOW TO HANDLE COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCIES UNTIL YOUR APPOINTMENT

DENTAL TRAUMA & ORAL SOFT TISSUE INJURY

  • Keep calm and book your emergency dental check up appointment ASAP.

  • Know that some minor trauma can heal itself in 6-8 weeks.

  • If bleeding, keep firm pressure on affected site for 20 minutes (do not let go of the pressure).

TOOTHACHE

  • Clean well around the aching tooth, including brushing and flossing to dislodge possible food/debris that's stuck.

  • Rinse with warm salt water (use half cup warm water and teaspoon of fine salt) for 30 seconds 3x day.

  • Take over-the-counter pain medications if necessary. Ibuprofen usually works well. Try taking ibuprofen 600mg and acetaminophen 500mg together for more severe pain.

  • You can use some clove oil on a cotton swab to relieve some sensitivity temporarily.

  • Use ice packs to help control discomfort or swelling.

CHIPPED/ BROKEN TOOTH

  • Collect any piece of tooth and bring it to your appointment

  • Rinse with warm saline (salt) water to keep area disinfected. A broken tooth won’t always cause pain.

  • Emergency dentistry isn't always complicated!

AVULSED (KNOCKED OUT)/ DISLODGED TOOTH

  • You need to see a dentist in Yucaipa as soon as possible.

  • Pick up the avulsed (knocked out) tooth and put it in milk or saline (only if readily available - do not waste any time standing in line at a grocery store trying to purchase them - get to a Yucaipa dental office right way, if that will be quicker.

  • Come to Calimesa Dental within an hour to have any fighting chance of replanting the tooth.

LOST CROWN/ FILLING

  • If possible, bring the crown to your dental appointment. 

  • You can use some clove oil on a cotton swab to temporarily relieve some sensitivity.

  • You may be able to find temporary dental cement at a local pharmacy and temporarily put it back on (if the exposed tooth is sensitive or in an esthetic area) if you can't come in right away.

  • Stay calm and book your emergency dental check up appointment ASAP.

  • Please do not be tempted to use super glue.
