Handling a Dental Emergency
Accidents can happen at any time, so it’s good to be prepared by knowing what to do in the case of a dental emergency. If you have injured one of your teeth, contact your family dentistry office in Houston. Watch this video for more tips on handling a dental emergency.
First, clean the injured location and apply a cold pack to the area if you have injured your mouth, lip, or tongue. If the bleeding fails to subside, seek emergency treatment. If you see or suspect that you have a broken or chipped tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress.
When you can see your family dental care specialist, she may advise reconstructive dentistry procedures if you have damaged a tooth. Reconstructive dentistry can repair everything from small cracks to large chips in your teeth.
