What Should I Do in a Dental Emergency?

When a dental emergency occurs, call our office immediately, and a member of our compassionate team will help you walk through the next steps. We'll ask questions to clarify what is happening and provide helpful tips and instructions to alleviate the pain until you make it to our dental office. Our team cares about getting you out of pain and protecting your peace of mind, which is why we try to make emergency appointments as often as possible. Here are some helpful tips to address serious dental situations until you can see our emergency dentist in Phoenix:

  • Bleeding Gums: If your gums are bleeding consistently or have a cut that is bleeding, you can apply clean gauze to the site. Gently bite on the gauze to apply pressure to slow the bleeding.
  • Pain in the Tooth or Jaw: Apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek near the area of the pain. Don't apply cold directly to the sensitive area. You can also take an over-the-counter pain reliever until you see our emergency dentist.
  • Swollen Gums: You can take an anti-inflammatory medication and apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek to reduce the swelling.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: Gently pick up the tooth by the crown, avoiding the tooth root as much as possible. Rinse the tooth in room temperature water, place it in a glass of milk, saline solution, or saliva, and bring it with you to your emergency dental appointment.
  • Broken Tooth: Gather all the pieces of the tooth and rinse them in room temperature water. Place the pieces in a glass of milk, saline solution, or saliva, and bring them with you when you visit our emergency dentist. Rinse out your mouth by gently swishing clean, cool water.
