How to Handle the Top 3 Emergency Dental Problems

dentist emergency phone

If you experience a dental emergency, the first thing to always do is find an emergency dentist Center City Philadelphia. But if you can’t get in to see an emergency dentist immediately, discover what to do if you have an emergency dental issue.

Treating Toothache Trouble
Toothaches are one of the most common emergency dental problems. They’re often a sign of other dental issues and require professional treatment. But if you can’t see an emergency dentist Center City Philadelphia right away, try rinsing your mouth with warm water to reduce any pain. If your toothache is caused by something caught in your teeth, you can also try gently using dental floss to remove any painful particles.

Dealing with a Cracked Tooth
A cracked tooth demands a trip to an emergency dentist to repair the dental damage. But to soothe the pain while you wait, keep rinsing your mouth with warm water. And reduce any swelling by applying cold compresses on your face.

Facing Knocked-out Teeth

It’s frightening when your tooth is knocked out, but you should try to take at least one of these steps before seeing the emergency dentist to help you save the tooth:

  • Put the tooth in a glass of milk to keep it in the best possible condition.
  • Try putting the tooth right back in its normal position in your mouth.
  • Keep the tooth moist by holding it between your teeth and gums.
