If you have a dental emergency, contact Dr. Kesman at Bright and Shine Dental immediately for professional advice. Dr. Kesman and her team can give you tips on caring for your teeth before your same-day appointment. They may recommend the following care tips:
Try not to panic if you have a knocked-out tooth. Dr. Kesman may be able to reattach it to your gums. First, locate the tooth, rinse it carefully, and try to replace it in the socket. Gently bite down to hold the tooth in position. If you can’t replace the tooth, store it in a glass of milk or saliva until your appointment.
If you have a fractured tooth, try to find the missing piece and bring it to your appointment. In the meantime, you can apply ice to the area to relieve pain and swelling.
Accidents and injuries can cause you to bite into your gums or inner cheeks. Severe bleeding, swelling, and pain is always a sign for a prompt appointment. However, if you experience bleeding that won’t stop, seek treatment at your local emergency room immediately.
Severe tooth pain is a telltale sign of an infection. If you have a sudden toothache, avoid taking anti-inflammatory pain relievers until Dr. Kesman can accurately diagnose your condition. You can apply ice to the area to relieve pain and swelling in the meantime.
