Keep your smile shining brightly all summer with effective oral emergency planning. With effective planning, the chances of success with minimal recovery time are greatly increased. Always seek out professional help if an oral accident should occur.
Listed below are a few types of oral emergencies and their effective treatment plans:
Objects stuck in teeth:
– If an object has become lodged in your teeth, try using qualified interdental cleaners to remove the object, including dental floss or a water flosser, but never use a sharp or pointed tool to try and remove the object.
– If a tooth is knocked out, it may be possible to save it for re-insertion later by placing the tooth in a tooth-saving product, such as Save-A-Tooth or milk, and keep it moist until you can visit your dentist to place it back in your mouth.
Lost Crown or Filling:
– A lost dental crown should be covered with a cotton swab soaked in clove oil, whereas a lost filling should be covered with chewing gum or dental cement.
