What should I do right after a dental emergency?

The first thing you should do in the event of a dental emergency is to quickly call the office and get help from the staff on how to care for your situation until you’re able to arrive at the office.

In many cases, general at-home care should include swishing warm water around inside your mouth and over-the-counter pain medication to relieve your pain before you come in for your emergency appointment.

Cold compresses can also help bring down swelling and ease pain after certain dental emergencies. If you’re experiencing a toothache, you might want to gently floss in the painful area and make sure there’s nothing caught in your teeth.

If you’ve lost a restoration like a filling or crown, make sure to let the office know right away.
