We can fix!
Rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Use dental floss
to remove any food that might be trapped between the teeth. Do
not place aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues. Call us
as soon as possible.
Teeth: If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently in running
water. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments.
Gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket. If this is not
possible, place the tooth in a cup of milk or cool water. Drive
to our office as soon as possible. The sooner we see you the more
likely we are to save your tooth. DON'T FORGET TO BRING THE TOOTH!
or Broken Tooth: Gently clean the broken area with
warm water. Place a cold compress on your face to decrease any
swelling, and call us immediately.
Tongue or Lip: Apply direct pressue to the bleeing
area with a clean cloth. If swelling is present, apply a cold
compress to the area. If bleeding does not stop within 30 minutes,
call us immediately.
Caught Between Teeth: Try to gently remove the object
with floss. Guide the floss carefully to avoid cutting the gums.
If you are not successful, call us immediately. DO NOT TRY TO
REMOVE THE OBJECT WITH A SHARP OR POINTED INSTRUMENT.
Broken Jaw: Do not move the jaw. Secure the jaw in
place by tying a handkerchief, necktie, or towel around the jaw
and over the top of the head. If swelling is present, apply a
cold compress. Go immediately to a hospital emergency room.
