IN CASE OF A DENTAL EMERGENCY
Most dental emergencies don’t have to be treated right away, but it is the best you schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Meanwhile here are some preventions you can take until your appointment.
Do not let this opportunity pass. Take care of that dental issue before it’s too late.
If your face swells up it could be a sign of an infection and it’s important to schedule an appointment right away.
If you knock out a tooth pick it up by the crown, not the root, to prevent damaging the tissue that helps with reimplantation.
If you chip a tooth take a picture of it and email it to your dentist to know what kind of procedure you will need. Sensitivity is common and it goes away within a few days.
Stay upright and don’t lie flat, even during sleep. Drink fluids.
If a tooth hurts avoid chewing with it and make an appointment within the week.
