If you have a dental emergency, the first thing to do is call your dentist. They can help you figure out what to do. If you can't get in to see a dentist right away, try to rinse your teeth and mouth with water. This will help remove any chunks of tooth that may be lodged in your teeth or gums.
If this doesn't work, try to suck on a popsicle or ice cream. This will help melt the tooth and make it easier to remove. If you still can't remove the tooth, see a doctor. Dental emergencies in Tacoma should be handled by professional dentists.
Dental emergencies can occur at any time, and oftentimes there is no warning. If you have any signs of tooth decay, such as brown patches on your teeth or a change in your chewing or swallowing habits, schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Decay can cause pain and toothache, both of which are symptoms of a dental emergency.
Know the warning signs of a dental emergency. If you experience pain that lasts more than an hour, severe jaw pain, difficulty breathing, or lightheadedness, go to the hospital immediately.
Bring a friend or family member with you to the dentist's office if possible. This will help to make the experience more comfortable for you and provide support during your emergency visit.
