EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE IN Granite Bay
At Make A Smile, we leave space in our schedules for dental emergencies. We know how painful it is to see your child or loved ones in dental pain. Which is why we are committed to providing urgent dental care.
We do everything in our power to help ensure that patients never experience dental emergencies, but if you ever do have one, you will receive prompt, compassionate care at Make A Smile.
TIPS FOR HANDLING DENTAL EMERGENCIES
- For a tooth that is knocked out, rinse it in tepid water but do not use soap or scrub it. Hold it by the crown (not the root), and gently replace it into the socket if possible. Otherwise, keep it between the cheek and gum, or in a cup of milk. Call Make A Smile Dental and come in right away for the best chance of saving the tooth.
- For a cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area. Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down.
- If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress.
- For toothaches, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth. Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues.
