DENTAL EMERGENCY

Everything you need to know about dental trauma situations.

What do I do if I knocked out or displaced my tooth/teeth?

• Find the missing tooth/teeth and pick it up by the crown. Avoid touching the root.

• Place the tooth/teeth in a moist environment: preferably a saline solution, but if one isn’t available, you can place the tooth in your mouth(but DO NOT SWALLOW THE TOOTH).

• Get to theOnCall dentist immediately for replantation. Less than an hour is optimal.

What do I do if I have chipped a front tooth?

• Save pieces of the teeth in a moist medium: best in a saline solution.

• Contact an OnCall dentist to discuss repair.

What do I do if I have facial swelling?

• Most facial swellings are due to infection. Please see an OnCall dentist (or local dentist) immediately to treat the cause of the swelling with antibiotics and/or to receive treatment performed by a trained dentist/hospital emergency department.

• Place ice pack on the affected area 20 minutes on, 10 minutes off, 20 minutes on for pain relief and reduction of swelling.

What do I do if I have mouth pain?

• You can start on over-the-counter medication. We suggest up to 800mg of ibuprofen (Advil) every 4-6 hours (do not exceed 3200mg in 24 hours).

• If you have an allergy to aspirin, you can take 1000mg of acetaminophen (Tylenol) (do not exceed 4000mg in a 24-hour period – if you have kidney or liver disease, make sure to discuss treatment with your doctor).
