Broken, Bitten, or Bleeding – Tips for Handling a Common Dental Emergency

Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency can be scary, painful, and expensive. When trauma to the teeth occurs or sudden pain or swelling develops, it’s essential to locate an emergency dentist. If your regular dentist in Jacksonville is not available, or you’re traveling, you can usually search online to find an affordable dentist who will accept your insurance plan or offer financing options. Until you’re able to get emergency dental care, the following tips may be useful.

Knocked-Out Tooth
Holding it by its crown, rinse the tooth thoroughly in water. Don’t attempt to remove tissue fragments or scrub the tooth. If you can, place the tooth back in its socket, and hold it in place. Alternatively, place it in a cup of milk. See an emergency dentist immediately.

Lip or Tongue Bite
Clean the area, and apply a cold compress if swelling is present. If bleeding continues, visit a hospital emergency room.

Broken Tooth
Rinse with warm water, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling, and contact your dentist immediately.

Clean between the affected tooth and adjacent teeth with dental floss to be sure the pain isn’t due to a trapped object. If pain persists, see your dentist when possible.

Objects Lodged in Teeth
Try to remove the foreign object using dental floss. Do not use sharp instruments. See your dentist as soon as possible if you cannot dislodge the object.

Suspected Broken Jaw
Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling, and visit an emergency dentist or hospital emergency room immediately.

Cracked Tooth
Avoid biting down on the tooth, and see your dentist in Jacksonville as soon as possible.

Don’t Put It Off
If you’re experiencing pain, don’t wait to see if the symptoms go away. Early treatment of a dental emergency can prevent tooth loss and reduce medical costs. For the best outcome, seek help from an affordable dentist immediately after the dental emergency occurs.
