What do I do in a Dental Emergency?
Keep Calm & Reduce Bleeding
Any dental mishap can transform a routine day into a stressful, discomforting ordeal. But remember, it's essential to remain calm - your dentist is here to assist you. Simply inhaling deeply and evaluating the situation can significantly improve your decision-making during an emergency. If any bleeding occurs due to your dental injury, use a sterile strip of gauze to apply pressure on the affected area. Hold the gauze in position until the bleeding ceases, or until you get to our office.
Control Swelling & Pain
You can temporarily lessen any pain or swelling you might be experiencing using over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. But, avoid aspirin and similar blood-thinning medicines, as they could hamper clot formation and make it harder to halt bleeding. Besides medication, a cold compress can also offer pain relief. Apply an ice pack to the cheek or lip near the affected area.
