If your tooth is causing you pain, here are a few ways to reduce the discomfort while you wait:
Find the tooth and rinse it in cool water. Do not scrub the tooth or wash it with soap. If possible, replace the tooth in the socket and secure it with clean gauze. If you can’t put the tooth back in the socket, place it in a clean container and cover it in cold milk or water.
Contact your emergency dental office as soon as possible. Do not try to replace the baby tooth in the socket since it can cause damage to the permanent teeth developing in the jaw.
Contact your dentist immediately. Quick action can save the tooth, prevent infection, and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. Rinse the mouth with water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If you can find the broken tooth, place it in cold milk or water and bring it with you to the dental office.
Seek immediate medical attention. A severe head injury can be life-threatening and requires urgent professional attention.
Call our office immediately. Over-the-counter children's pain medication, dosed according to your child's weight and age, may ease the symptoms. You can apply a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling, but do not apply heat to the affected area.
