Professional Advice For Dealing With A Broken Tooth
When you break a tooth, your first inclination may be to panic, especially if the damage was sustained at a time or on a day when a dentist may not be available. Have no fear, however, as there are things you can do for yourself which will ensure the best possible outcome.
1) Clean Your Mouth And Save Any Tooth Fragment
Rinse your mouth with warm water, and soak the piece(s) of broken tooth as well. Make sure the area is clean, and place the tooth fragment in a bag with a tight seal. We may need it to reassemble your broken tooth later.
2) Apply Gauze To The Broken Tooth
Use a compact consisting of gauze or a wash cloth, and hold it down tightly on the broken tooth. This will help to protect any exposed nerve, and to stop bleeding. Hold it in place for at least 10 minutes in the case of bleeding, and keep it covered if there is nerve exposure until you can get to see someone for it.
Use Ice And Ibuprofin
If you experience a great deal of pain with your tooth, take an over the counter remedy as needed. Also, place an ice pack over your broken tooth. This will alleviate swelling, which make you more comfortable.
Once you’ve addressed the immediacy of your situation, get on the phone and call us to make an appointment to have your broken tooth fixed. Give as much information as you can, so that we can be prepared to make the quickest and most suitable repairs as possible.
