How can I take care of a dental emergency?
Until you can come to our office to meet with our dentist, you can help to take care of your smile with the following advice:
• Toothaches: We recommend that you rinse your mouth and remove any food with floss. Then, apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth.
• Chipped tooth: Rinse the tooth using warm water and apply gauze if there is bleeding. Put a cold compress near the tooth to relieve pain and swelling.
• Knocked-out tooth: Hold the tooth by the crown (or the part of the tooth that is typically visible). Do not rinse the tooth. Simply put it in a container or plastic bag (without tissue or paper towels); you can add water to keep it hydrated.
Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner and our team can offer you further advice based on your emergency. Please contact us if you need dental emergency care in Burlington, Connecticut.
