What to do in a dental emergency

Ease the pain

If you're experiencing a dental emergency, don't panic. Call your dentist and let them know you're on your way. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to ease the pain until you arrive at the dentist's office. For example, if your toothache is unbearable, try using a cold compress on the outside of your cheek or rinse your mouth with warm salted water. This can provide some short-term relief.

For broken or cracked teeth, apply an ice pack to the affected area to reduce any swelling or inflammation. You can also take OTC pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, but don't exceed the recommended dosage.

If you have an abscess, applying heat in the form of a warm compress, such as a warm flannel, can help reduce swelling and speed up healing. Remember, the most important thing is to get to your dentist as soon as possible. They'll be able to assess the situation and provide the appropriate treatment.
