First Aid Steps
In case of a dental emergency, administering the right first aid steps is also important. At Western Clinic Dental, we want you to be fully knowledgeable and prepared for the first aid steps needed during a dental emergency. We have listed the first aid steps for two of the most common dental emergencies experienced by young and old alike.
Knocked Out Tooth
- Pick and secure the tooth immediately. Hold it by the crown and do not touch the root.
- If the tooth is dirty, rinse it with lukewarm water for no more than 10 seconds. Do not brush, scrape, or rub.
- If it is a permanent tooth, reinsert it in place and bite down gently on a clean piece of cloth. For knocked out baby tooth, let your dentist do the re-implantation to avoid damage top the developing permanent tooth underneath.
- Soak the tooth in milk, saline solution, or saliva on your way to the dentist.
- Go to your dentist within 30 minutes of the injury.
- Make sure that there are no food particles left in the mouth, particularly in the aching area.
- Brush your teeth gently, floss in between teeth, and rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash or a salt-water solution (1/2 teaspoon of salt to eight ounces of lukewarm water).
- Apply clove oil on the aching area to reduce pain and sensitivity.
- Take OTC pain relievers but always be mindful of their restrictions. Never put aspirin on the aching area as this can cause a chemical burn.
- Go to your dentist immediately.
