What to do in the case of a dental emergency

Here are guidelines on how to handle common dental emergencies.

Toothache

See your dentist as soon as you feel discomfort or pain.

Broken, chipped, or cracked tooth

Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your face. Go to the dentist right away. If the tooth was broken or chipped, bring the tooth fragment wrapped in wet gauze or a wet towel.

Loosened or knocked-out tooth

If your tooth becomes loose due to trauma, call your dentist. For a knocked out tooth, gently insert the lost tooth back in its socket if possible, holding the tooth by the crown using a clean washcloth. (If the tooth is dirty, first rinse the root but do not scrub it or remove any attached tissues.) If reinsertion isn’t possible, hold the tooth under the tongue and go to the dentist immediately.

Broken Jaw

Apply ice or a cold compress to the face. Go to your dentist or an emergency center immediately.

Bitten Tongue or Lip

Clean the area with a wet cloth and place a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. If the bleeding persists or if it is excessive, go to your dentist or an emergency center.

WHAT THEY SAY
Amanda Thompson

This is a great dentist office! I would not have been happier with my experience. Everyone was super welcoming, genuine, professional and kind.

Brianna Joy-White

Really great office! I've been coming here a lot during the past year after a super long dental hiatus. They've been incredibly accommodating and have options for patients with sensitivity options like me

Deena Tran

Dr. Jafari and her staff make going to the dentist a much less scary experience. Everyone is thoughtful, knowledgeable, professional and pleasant. I can't recommend VA Family Dentistry enough!
