Dental emergencies can happen at any time. But knowing what to do by discussing possibilities with your dentist in advance can make a difference in saving your teeth.
Common dental injuries include an avulsed, broken, or cracked teeth. If you have a tooth knocked out, try to gather what’s left, store it in a container, and take it to the dentist as soon as possible. Soaking it with milk in the meantime will give it a higher chance of saving. Your dentist will try to place it back in the socket and find the best possible option.
In some dental emergency cases, you may experience throbbing pain in your mouth that does not fade even after medication. Visit your dentist immediately in this case to help you manage the pain and find the root cause.
