The Australian Dental Association advice
The Australian Dental Association (ADA) gives great advice for measures to take in an emergency (you may download the PDF document). Don’t leave it until it’s too late. Read these additional tips now.
Very persistent toothache is always a sign that you must see a dentist as soon as practicable. In the meantime, you should try to obtain relief by rinsing the mouth with water and cleaning out debris from any obvious cavities. Use dental floss to remove any food trapped within the cavity (especially between the teeth). If swelling is present, place a cold compress outside the cheek (DO NOT HEAT). Take pain relief if necessary, using pain medicines you know you are safe with. Remember, no pain relief tablets will work directly on the tooth. They must be swallowed as directed. They can cause more trouble (especially aspirin) if placed on the tooth.
Braces or retainers
If a wire is causing irritation, cover the end of the wire with a small cotton ball or a piece of gauze or soft wax. If a wire is embedded in the cheek, tongue or gum tissue, DO NOT attempt to remove it: Let the dentist do it. If there is a loose or broken appliance, GO TO THE ORTHODONTIST OR DENTIST.
Knocked out tooth
If dirty, rinse the tooth in milk holding it by the crown (not the roots). If not available, use water (few seconds only) or have the patient suck it clean, then put the tooth back in the socket. If the tooth cannot be replanted, wrap it in Glad Wrap or place it in milk or in the patient’s mouth inside the cheek. Go to a dentist within 30 minutes if you can – we have dentist open today in Melbourne, don’t hesitate to call us on 03 8608-8968. Time is critical for successful replanting and emergency dental services.
Try to clean debris from the injured area with warm water. If caused by a blow, place a cold compress on the face next to the injured tooth to minimize swelling. Try to find all the missing bits and bring them to the dentist, keeping them moist. Some broken bits can be bonded back onto the teeth almost invisibly. Go to the dentist as soon as practicable.
Bitten tongue or lip
Apply direct pressure to the bleeding area with a clean cloth. If swelling is present, apply a cold compress. If bleeding doesn’t stop readily or the bite is severe, go to the dentist or hospital.
Objects wedged between teeth
Try to remove the object with dental floss. Guide the floss in carefully so as not to cut the gums. If unsuccessful, go to a dentist.
