What should I do after a dental emergency?

Here are some general at-home care tips for relieving your pain before you’re able to come in for an appointment at the office:

Chipped or cracked tooth

First, rinse your mouth right away with warm water to thoroughly clean the tooth and surrounding area. Cold compresses can really help bring down any swelling.

Aches and pains

Rinse your mouth with warm water to thoroughly clean the area. Then try to gently floss in the painful area and see if there’s any food caught in your teeth.

Lost filling

You can try over-the-counter pain medication or apply clove oil to the sensitive area. However, try and get an appointment as soon as possible to replace your lost filling.
