Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson share the following tips if you experience at dental emergency.
If you have an accident and your tooth is still in your mouth:
- Straighten it and quickly apply ice.
- Call your dentist right away. Loveable Smiles can be reached at 972-231-0585 and we answer our phone 24/7.
If your tooth is knocked out during an accident:
- Find the tooth and clean it off.
- Place the tooth in a small container of milk. The calcium in the milk helps keep your tooth moisturized.
- See your dental professional as soon as possible, preferably within 30 minutes.
- Don’t forget to take the tooth with you.
With prompt attention, a permanent tooth may be re-implanted into the tooth socket and saved. The dentist will then monitor it and determine what other treatment may be necessary depending on how it reattaches.
If you can’t get a hold of your dentist, you should go to an emergency room.
