Your Dental Emergency

We Have a Solution

Knocked out Adult Tooth: Gently rinse your mouth with warm water and if possible place the tooth back into the socket by holding the tooth by the crown. Do not attempt to touch the root of the tooth, and place the tooth in cold whole milk to preserve it. Contact our office immediately.

Knocked out Baby Tooth: If your child has knocked out a baby tooth, keep it moist in cold milk and seek dental care immediately. The dentist will assess if the tooth can be implanted again and assess if the tooth has come out cleanly.

Cracked Tooth: Clean the area by gently rinsing your mouth with warm water. Floss around the area to remove any trapped food particles. Call as soon as possible to assess and treat the damage.

Toothache: Rinse gently with warm water and floss to remove any trapped food particles. Contact our office to arrange a consultation.

5 Tips in a Dental Emergency

Reduce Pain And Manage Symptoms

  • Have yourself or a loved one call the dentist right away
  • Do NOT poke or prod the affected area or apply aspirin to the site
  • Apply a cold press to the outside of the cheek to reduce swelling
  • Avoid strenuous activity or forceful spitting or rinsing of the mouth
  • Download our post-op forms after treatment to support fast recovery

What To Do After a Dental Emergency

Recover Quickly With Proper Dental Care

After receiving care for a broken tooth, cracked crown or other dental emergency it is highly recommended for patients to rest and avoid engaging in strenuous activity for some days following treatment. For many patients this may include introducing soft foods slowly over time or sleeping with multiple propped-up pillows to reduce swelling and aid in proper blood flow. While applying a cold pack can help reduce pain or swelling, Dr. Riar may prescribe medication to manage pain and reduce risks for infection. Talk with Dr. Riar today if you have questions about your treatment or want to know more about our services in restorative dentistry.
