Dental Emergencies: What to Do

 

Emergency Dentistry Beausejour Manitoba

 

Dental emergencies can be scary, especially if you feel underprepared for how to respond in the situation. Ignoring dental emergencies can lead to painful and costly issues in the future, so being prepared to handle issues that arise upfront can be the best solution to save you time, money, and pain!

 

Toothache

 

Having a toothache is absolutely no fun; it usually occurs when a cavity is close to and irritates a nerve, and often requires a dental crown or sometimes a root canal. To take the edge off of some of your immediate pain, consider taking a pain reliever, or applying a cold compress to the area.

 

Knocked-Out Teeth

 

If you knock out a tooth, save it! Speed matters if you’re trying to save your lost tooth - quickly reinsert (without forcing!) the tooth into its socket, or save the tooth in a cup of milk. Get to  Beausejour Dental Centre immediately for best odds of saving your tooth.

 

Broken Teeth

 

If you break a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water to wash away any smaller fragments that could be lingering. If you’re bleeding, hold a piece of gauze on the area until bleeding stops. You can use a cold compress to relieve some of the pain and swelling, and you should come in to Beausejour Dental Centre as soon as possible.

 

If you have a dental emergency, it’s best to get in to see Beausejour Dental Centre immediately. If you have any questions, or to schedule your next appointment call  204.268.1782!
