Events That Require Emergency Care:
In the event of dental trauma, knowing what to do and following safe handling procedures can stem damage and prevent costly expenditures or procedures. In the event of an accident or injury, see below for proper care instructions and call our offices as soon as possible.
— Save the tooth, but do not touch the root, handle by the sides
— Replace tooth into the socket
— If replacing the tooth in the socket is too painful, keep the tooth in cheek of your mouth
— If this is not possible, keep tooth hydrated by putting it in a cup of saliva, milk, or water
— Seek dental care right away.
— Keep the crown in a safe place until a permanent replacement is possible
— If possible, temporarily replace the crown into the socket with dental cement from your local drug store
— In case of severe pain, dental cement can also be used to protect the exposed nerve. Apply dental cement to the area and take over the counter medication
— Schedule an appointment for a permanent replacement as soon as possible
