Did you know…

Hey, friend! Dental mishaps? They’re no fun, but the good news is, what you do right after can really make a difference in how things turn out once you get that speedy care from your emergency dentist. And yes, while they’ll get you in ASAP, there are a couple of smart moves you can make on your way there. Thanks to the wise folks at the American Dental Association, here’s the lowdown:

  • If you’ve had a bit of a tangle and bitten your lip or tongue, clean the area gently then keep things cool with a cold compress.
  • For a broken tooth, give the area a gentle rinse and apply that cold compress to keep the swelling down.
  • Tooth decided to bail on you? Rinse the root if it’s dirty (remember, hold it by the crown!) and try to pop it back into its socket. If that’s a no-go, milk is your tooth’s new best friend until you reach the dentist.

Remember, these quick steps aren’t just busy work; they’re your first aid for smiles, giving you a head start on saving that tooth or easing the pain.
