Yes, we can help preserve your tooth. When you come to the office, bring the broken or lost tooth with you. We will take immediate steps to save the tooth and repair the injury.
It is important that you see an emergency dental care office as soon as this happens. The preservation of the tooth depends on the timeliness.
- Don’t chew on the side of the infected tooth & avoid hot or cold foods and beverages as your tooth may be sensitive to the temperature.
- Put oil of cloves directly on the tooth to relieve pain. You can buy oil of cloves at drugstores.
- Place a cold pack on your jaw over the sore area. This will help to reduce inflammation and temporarily create a numbing effect. If you’d like, you can gently massage the numbed cheek externally to help ease some of the pain.
- You may use over-the-counter medication to ease the pain unless another medicine was prescribed. If you have chronic liver or kidney disease, talk with your health care provider before using acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Also, talk with your provider if you’ve had a stomach ulcer or GI bleeding.
Most of our offices offer some form of sedation dentistry. Please contact the Emergency Dental Care office near you for more information.
