1. Knocked Out Teeth
If one of your permanent adult teeth has been knocked out from trauma or other injury, the key is to salvage as much as you can of the tooth as possible and work to keep the tooth moist.
Tooth preservation kits may be purchased at your local drugstore, follow the manufacturer’s directions. If this is not available to you, then we urge you to store the tooth in a small container with either your own saliva or milk to help preserve it until a dentist is seen.
Lastly, rinse your mouth out with warm water to clean the area & then schedule an appointment as soon as you can.
2. Crowns or Fillings That Have Fallen Out
Similar to a knocked out tooth, retrieve as much of your crown or filling as possible and keep it moist to help preserve. Use a tooth preservation kit, milk, or your own saliva and place the crown inside of a container until a dentist can see you. Place a cold compress on your cheeks face to help any swelling.
3. Severe Toothaches
You may take over-the-counter medications to help with the pain, but severe toothaches should be addressed as soon as possible instead of masked by painkillers. Schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
