Expert Tips to Treat 3 Emergency Dental Dilemmas

Having an emergency dental issue? Try to stay calm and find an emergency dentist Detroit immediately. Until you see the emergency dentist, try these helpful hints.

Tending to a Toothache
Did you know that toothaches are one of the most frequent emergency dental concerns? They’re often a sign of other dental issues and require professional treatment. Yet until you can see an emergency dentist Detroit, you should keep gently rinsing your mouth with warm water. If your toothache is caused by a particle trapped in your teeth, try gently using dental floss to remove it.

Caring for a Cracked Tooth
If you have a cracked tooth, you must go to an emergency dentist to treat and correct the problem. But to soothe the pain while you wait, keep rinsing your mouth with warm water. And reduce any swelling by applying cold compresses on your face.

Dealing with Knocked out Teeth

When your tooth is knocked out, you must try to stay calm and follow these steps to improve the odds that the emergency dentist can save your tooth:

  • Keep the tooth moist by holding it between your teeth and gums.
  • Place the tooth into a glass of milk to preserve it.
  • Try putting the tooth back into its normal place in your mouth.
