Types of Dental Emergencies

Columbus Dentist

Knowing how to respond in a dental emergency and when to see a dentist can help you save your teeth. If one of your permanent teeth has been dislodged by a fall or other type of accident, there are several things you can do. Carefully replace the tooth in your jaw, avoiding the root. Alternatively, position the tooth between your cheek and gum. If neither of these are practicable, place the tooth in milk, or use an ADA-recommended tooth preserving product. Visit an emergency dentist near Columbus, Ohio immediately.

If you have a foreign object lodged inside your mouth, attempt to remove it gently by using dental floss. Never poke or prod the area with a sharp object. In the case of a cracked tooth or toothache, rinse the mouth with warm water. Floss with care if food debris is present. Consult your dentist as soon as possible.
