Our dentist and team understand that a dental injury can happen to anyone when they’re least expecting it. Because of this, we have included some instructions below about what to do in the case of a dental emergency. Of course, seeking help from our office or your doctor is imperative but so is knowing what to do before you visit our office.

If you experience a serious injury like a broken jaw, please visit the emergency room or your medical doctor before you seek dental treatment. If you have a life-threatening injury, please call 911 or go to the emergency room.

Chipped or Broken Teeth
In some instances, a chipped or cracked tooth will be nearly painless. In other cases, you may experience extreme pain. We urge you to contact our office immediately if you chip or fracture a tooth. Before you come to our office, there are a few things you can do:

  • Retrieve any part of the tooth that broke off, rinse it in lukewarm water and bring it to our office.
  • If you experience bleeding, apply gauze to the area for 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops.
  • Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the check to minimize any swelling and pain.
  • Use a topical pain reliever.

Avulsed (Knocked-Out) Teeth
Contact our office manager, Marcy, immediately if your tooth (or your child’s tooth) is knocked out. Time is critical in this situation. Dr. Azinge can usually replace the tooth if it is brought into our office within an hour. Please follow these instructions:

  • Rinse your mouth to remove any debris and blood.
  • Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the check to minimize any swelling and pain.
  • Pick up the crown by the chewing surface. Do not touch the root.
  • Gently rinse the tooth with water without scrubbing.
  • Place the tooth in milk or water and bring it to the office with you.

Rinsing your mouth or your child’s mouth to remove debris can often relieve a toothache. Flossing to remove debris from between the teeth is also often effective. If these do not relive discomfort, contact our office manager, Marcy, and make an appointment with Dr. Azinge so that we can examine the area to determine the cause of the toothache and provide the needed treatment.
