Do you have a knocked out or broken tooth? An injury such as a broken or completely knocked out tooth is a dental emergency and must be attended to by a emergency dentist. What should you do in the meantime?
Most often, the missing tooth cannot be saved but time is still of the utmost importance if there is any chance. Any further damage to the surrounding bone or tissue could cause further infection or complications. Call us as soon as you can to set up the earliest appointment you can possibly make!
- Call us at 419-866-4271 and schedule an emergency dentist services appointment.
- Rinse the area and your mouth out with warm water or diluted salt water to clean as much away from the wound as possible. Use cold compresses on the affected area to keep swelling down.
- If the tooth has been completely and fairly cleanly displaced from it’s socket and you can do so, get a small cup/glass/carton of milk (whatever kind you can quickly get your hands on) and put the tooth (or teeth) in it. Don’t forget to bring the tooth (or teeth) in the milk with you for your emergency visit.
