Dental Emergencies

Tooth Pain

Use warm water to rinse out your mouth, and remove any particles around the tooth with dental floss. Do not put a pain reliever directly on your tooth, however clove oil may be placed on the tooth temporarily. Also, if you keep your mouth closed, the pain will not be as intense because cold air will not get to the tooth. If the pain is severe, call Smiles Dental Group (661)252-2800, or make an appointment request online.

Knocked-out tooth

First, find the tooth. Use a compress (a clean gauze or cotton cloth applied with mild pressure) to stop the bleeding. Holding the tooth by the crown (the white part you normally see), gently rinse the tooth with water if it is visibly dirty. Do not scrub the tooth or remove any tissue fragments. Replace the tooth in its socket if you can; otherwise place it in a cup of milk. Call Smiles Dental Group (661)252-2800, or make an appointment request online.

Object lodged between teeth

Use dental floss and attempt to take it out gently. Never use a sharp object to remove anything from between your teeth. If this technique doesn't work, as soon as possible call Smiles Dental Group (661)252-2800, or make an appointment request online.

Bitten lip or tongue

Use a cloth to clean the area around the bite and cold compresses to reduce swelling. If the bleeding persists, call Smiles Dental Group (661)252-2800 or go to the emergency room.

Broken tooth and swollen jaw

Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area around the broken tooth, and use cold compresses to reduce the swelling. call Smiles Dental Group (661)252-2800, or make an appointment request online.
