Whether you have broken your tooth, got a knock to your teeth or completely knocked out a tooth, our skilled team are on hand to provide the dental treatment you need as quickly as possible.
Pain may not appear straightaway but if you eat or drink something when you have hit your teeth, then contact us immediately.
Here are some immediate first aid tips to consider
If you knocked out a tooth, handle the tooth very carefully – at the crown, not the root. Sometimes it is possible to re-implant a tooth. Rinse out your mouth with lukewarm water and rinse the tooth in lukewarm water or milk.
Try to implant the tooth yourself in the gum. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. If it doesn’t, store the tooth in either milk or your saliva. Get to us at Balbriggan Dental and Facial Clinic as soon as possible.
If you have broken your tooth or moved it out of place, place a cold compress on your mouth/jaw/cheek to reduce swelling. Get into us as soon as possible as it may avoid issues in the future.
If you have a major toothache, try some over the counter pain medication and apply a cold compress. Call us immediately if you’re not getting any comfort from the pain medication.
At Balbriggan Dental and Facial Clinic, we are here to help you with emergency dental concerns.
