What Is A Dental Emergency?
As a general rule, we define a dental emergency as any oral condition that is causing you pain that you cannot treat on your own. If your condition fits these criteria, contact Seaglass Dental Care for an appointment right away.
What Should I Do In A Dental Emergency?
Next, recover your tooth or damaged dental work (if applicable.) You can place a missing tooth back in its socket after washing it gently with water, or put it in a small bag of milk.
Treat bleeding by using clean cotton balls or sterile gauze to absorb blood.
You can also take an over-the-counter medicine like naproxen (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) to help with pain and swelling. Ice packs applied externally can also help with pain, swelling and inflammation.
Keep in mind that time is of the essence and that some emergencies, like a knocked-out tooth, must be treated within 1-2 hours to save the tooth.
