What to Do in an Emergency
Pain is one of the most common reasons why patients experience emergency trips to their dentist’s office. Pain can be caused from a myriad of reasons from tooth decay to trauma.
If you are experiencing pain from tooth decay, Dr. Boles can help you. We offer emergency tooth fillings and root canals to alleviate your pain and save your tooth.
Prior to coming in for your visit, you can alleviate pain by using over-the-counter medications for inflammation. You can also place cold packs on your cheek and swish warm salt water throughout your mouth.
If you have lost your tooth due to trauma or it being knocked out, you want to try to save the tooth. Never touch the root of your tooth and only hold it by the dental crown. You can rinse any dirt off the tooth, but avoid removing the tissues from it. If you can, place the tooth back in your mouth. When you cannot place the tooth in your mouth, put it in a small container filled with milk.
If you are experiencing pain from a chipped or broken tooth, do not try to pull it out or remove the broken piece as this may only cause more damage. Leave the tooth in place and call Fairhope Cosmetic Dentistry right away. We will schedule you an appointment to be seen and have your tooth corrected.
