If you have a dental emergency, it is always best to come in and see our dentist as quickly as you can. If this is not an option, here are some tips for handling some of the most common dental problems. For a toothache, try rinsing your mouth with lukewarm salt water (1 cup warm water mixed with 1 teaspoon salt). Salt water helps to clean and soothe the area. Take over the counter pain medications, if necessary. A tooth that has been knocked out can often be re-implanted if you act quickly and come to see us in a timely manner.
Avoid touching the root as much as possible and transport the tooth in some of the person’s own saliva or in milk. A separated needs to be re-cemented as soon as possible. Until that happens, keep the area clean.
You can use denture cream or toothpaste placed inside the crown to gently fit it back into place for a temporary fix. Please don’t hesitate to call us at (303) 458-7051.
