Dental Emergencies: What to Do

Emergency Dentistry Berkeley

Dental emergencies can be scary, especially if you feel underprepared for how to respond in the situation. Ignoring dental emergencies can lead to painful and costly issues in the future, so being prepared to handle issues that arise upfront can be the best solution to save you time, money, and pain!

Toothache

Having a toothache is absolutely no fun; it usually occurs when a cavity is close to and irritates a nerve, and often requires a dental crown or sometimes a root canal. To take the edge off of some of your immediate pain, consider taking a pain reliever, or applying a cold compress to the area.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you knock out a tooth, save it! Speed matters if you’re trying to save your lost tooth – quickly reinsert (without forcing!) the tooth into its socket, or save the tooth in a cup of milk. Get to your Berkeley Transcendentists Dr. Praj and Dr. Ruhi immediately for best odds of saving your tooth.

Broken Teeth

If you break a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water to wash away any smaller fragments that could be lingering. If you’re bleeding, hold a piece of gauze on the area until bleeding stops. You can use a cold compress to relieve some of the pain and swelling, and you should come in to see Berkeley dentists Dr. Praj and Dr. Ruhi as soon as possible.

If you have a dental emergency, it’s best to get in to see Berkeley emergency dentists Dr. Praj and Dr. Ruhi immediately. If you have any questions, or to schedule your next appointment with Berkeley Transcendentists, call (510) 800-7660 today!
