Emergency Tips

TOOTHACHE


•  Take 600mg ibuprofen and 1 extra strength (500 mg) or 2 regular strength (325 mg each) Tylenol every 6 hours as needed for up to 3 days – consult your physician if you are not sure if this regimen is safe for you. Consult your dentist as soon as possible
•  If the source of pain may possibly be gum inflammation or irritation – rinse with 50% hydrogen peroxide (diluted with water), then floss well, followed by a warm salt water rinse. Repeat as needed


BROKEN TOOTH OR LOST FILLING


•  Smooth any rough edges with a nail file
•  Fill in if necessary with a temporary filling material from the drug store, paraffin wax (found with canning supplies in the grocery store), or even orthodontic wax


PERMANENT OR TEMPORARY CROWN OFF



•  If it is not sensitive, it is best to leave it off and keep the area clean, as long as you can get to the dental office within a couple of days (so teeth don’t move)
•  If it is sensitive, you may put some clove oil on your tooth
•  If you need to temporarily replace it, practice placement first and then use Elmer’s white school glue (best), toothpaste (not gel or whitening), or Vaseline to place over the dry tooth, bite down to ensure full seating, and clean up the excess


SOFT TISSUE TRAUMA



•  Put direct pressure with a clean moist cloth if bleeding, use ice in a cloth or a cold compress to minimize swelling
•  May use a moist tea bag for bleeding as well


KNOCKED OUT PERMANENT TOOTH


•  Try not to touch the root, rinse gently with water, place back in the socket with correct orientation and hold firmly while biting down. If you can’t get it back in the socket, store it in saline or milk, or between your cheek and gums. You should see your dentist ASAP


CANKER SORE/ULCER


•  Numerous products are available in drug stores, but you can also apply aloe or a moist tea bag, coat with milk of magnesia, or chew an antacid tablet


FEVER BLISTER


•  Numerous OTC options are available, and there are many home remedies on the internet which you can use at your discretion
