Manage Your Emergency with Self-Care
Before your emergency visit with our Pasadena dental team, take steps to minimize your discomfort. Manage toothache pain with over the counter aspirin or NSAIDs. Use a cold compress to reduce swelling and inflammation.
If a permanent tooth is knocked out of the socket, rinse in warm water and replace it immediately. This ensures your best chances of keeping it. If your child knocks out a tooth, put it in milk. Although it may not be possible to reattach it, the tooth can be used to make a temporary replacement.
When teeth are broken or fractured, the exposed area can be sensitive or cause discomfort. You can use dental wax to cover sharp edges and take pain medication if necessary. Try to avoid chewing in that area and be sure to collect all pieces and fragments for possible reattachment.
