Gentle Care Dentistry provides patients with excellent after hours dental advice and care. Dr. Brianne Luu is dedicated to serving the Azusa community through gentle, effective dental care.
What can constitute a dental emergency?
- An infected tooth: Tooth infections can cause some of the worst pain of your life. To obtain a little pain relief while waiting for treatment, use a cold compress on the outside of your cheek for 20 minutes. Don’t apply directly to the tooth! This can infect the tooth further.
- A lost filling: Rinse your mouth with warm water. See someone to treat it as soon as possible.
- A knocked-out tooth: Call immediately. The sooner you can see a dentist, the higher chance we have of being able to reinsert and save the tooth! In the interim, keep the tooth safe in a small container of milk or water with salt added.
- A chipped or broken tooth: Rinse the area with warm water. If it is bleeding apply some cotton to the area. Use a cool pack on the side of your face to bring down swelling. Call immediately.
