Dental Emergency Advice for Patients from Ealing Suffering from a Broken Tooth, Fractured Crown or Knocked Out Tooth

21-05-2013

A dental emergency can happen when we least expect it to patients from Ealing. It could be a trip or fall knocking out a tooth, or a broken tooth from eating a hard substance. Maybe a crown falls out, whatever the emergency the best thing to do is to call the Sparkle Dental Boutique as soon as possible so that we can treat the problem, but in the mean time here is some advice;

What if a tooth falls out?

If this happens the first thing to do is to try and find the tooth, it may still be in your mouth or it may have fallen on the ground but either way try to retrieve it and rinse it under water very gently. Try to put it back into the tooth socket but if this is not possible you can wrap the tooth in a cloth or tissue and submerge it in milk or put it in the cheek pocket of your mouth. Your tooth could possibly be saved if you get to us within 30 minutes.

A crown falls out

If for some reason your crown falls out try to get to the dentist as soon as you can. Don’t try to put the crown back in as the tooth can become infected or you could end up swallowing it. Gently clean the crown with a soft bristled tooth brush and get it as dry as possible. Call us at the Sparkle Dental Boutique so we can schedule an appointment as soon as we can.

The tooth may have fractured, but either way try to look in your mouth so that you can describe to us exactly what has happened.

What happens with a fractured tooth?

If your tooth becomes fractured call us as soon as possible. In the meantime rinse your mouth with warm water and if there is any pain or swelling using a cold compress to soothe.

Whatever the dental emergency we are there to help you and give advice. Call us at Sparkle Dental Boutique for all your dental emergency issues.
