Dental Emergencies

Accidents do happen, and knowing what to do when one occurs can mean the difference between saving a tooth and losing a tooth. Below is some advice for dealing with dental emergencies.

Bitten Lip or Tongue

Clean the area gently with a cloth and apply cold compresses to reduce swelling. If the bleeding doesn't stop go to a hospital emergency room immediately.

Broken Tooth

Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area. Use cold compresses on the area to keep any swelling down if you were hit in the face. Call a dentist immediately.


Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss or an interdental cleaner to ensure that there is no food or debris caught between the teeth. Never put aspirin or any other pain killer against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the tissue. Contact a dentist immediately.

Knocked Out Tooth

Hold the tooth by the crown (DO NOT TOUCH THE ROOT) and rinse off the root of the tooth in water if it is dirty. Do not scrub or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket. Holding the tooth somewhere in the mouth is also a good option. If that isn't possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk or better yet saliva, and get to the dentist as quickly as possible. If you can get to a dentist within 30 minutes of the accident the chance of saving the tooth is much improved.

Jaw-Possibly Broken

Apply cold compresses to control swelling. Go to a dental office or a hospital emergency room immediately.

Cracked Tooth

If you feel that your tooth is cracked immediately call a dentist. Do not bite or chew in that area until you can be seen and treated.
