Recognizing a Dental Emergency

Knowing how to identify a dental emergency is crucial. Severe tooth pain, a knocked-out tooth, a cracked or broken tooth, excessive bleeding, or swelling are all signs that you need urgent dental care.

Immediate Steps to Take

In case of a dental emergency, here are some immediate steps you can take before seeing the dentist:

  1. Rinse your mouth with warm water.

  2. If a tooth is knocked out, try to place it back in the socket without touching the root.

  3. If unable to reinsert the tooth, keep it moist by placing it in milk or saliva.

  4. Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and alleviate pain.
