How to Respond to an Emergency

It is important to know how to react when an oral emergency occurs since the first few minutes following the injury can determine whether or not the tooth can be saved.

Staying levelheaded and acting quickly can:

  • Allow knocked out teeth to be reinserted – Rinse the tooth in milk or saliva and gently insert it back into its socket for the drive to an emergency dentist in Hamden.
  • Enable teeth that have been chipped or cracked to be restored – Rinse mouth with warm water and use an ice pack to reduce swelling. Then, head to the dentist as soon as possible.
  • Relieve pain in patients suffering from intense toothaches – Clean mouth with warm water and use an ice pack to reduce swelling. If pain persists, visit the dentist as soon as possible.
  • Limit damage from abscesses – These painful infections can form between the teeth and the gums, or on the roots of a tooth, and can spread infection and damage tissue if left untreated. Rinse with salt water to help with the pain and make sure to get to the dentist as soon as possible.
  • Help your bitten lip, tongue, or cheek heal properly – Clean the wound with warm salt water and apply pressure to limit the bleeding. It is essential you head straight to the dentist, especially if bleeding persists after 15 minutes.

Giving Our Patients Peace of Mind

Dental emergencies don’t only happen during business hours. Whether it’s early morning or the middle of the night, a knocked out tooth or an agonizing toothache, knowing what to do immediately following oral trauma can help to avoid permanent consequences. In addition to knowing how to preserve a damaged tooth, it is important to know that you always have a trusted and experienced Hamden emergency dentist within reach.

We know emergencies happen when you least expect them. Call (203) 295-3434 now!
