If you experience an accident that affects your mouth, it’s important to visit your dentist as soon as possible.
A tooth that gets knocked out can sometimes be saved if you can preserve the tooth and see the dentist immediately. Try to place the tooth back in the socket, if possible. If that is not possible, try to keep the tooth in your mouth between your cheek and gums. Keeping the tooth moist until you are seen by the dentist could increase the chances of saving the tooth.
For a tooth that gets cracked, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area. Apply cold compresses to the face to manage swelling. See your dentist as soon as possible.
Tooth pain can result from a variety of causes. It’s important to see your dentist to diagnose the underlying cause of the pain. At your visit, the dentist will try to relieve your pain and work with you to treat the dental issue.
