What Do I Need to Do in the Event of an Emergency?
If you are experiencing an emergency or are having severe pain in your mouth, the first thing you need to do is call our office at (503) 305-5051 to schedule your same-day emergency appointment with us. Once we have your appointment scheduled, you can take an over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen or Tylenol to reduce swelling and minimize the pain.
If you are experiencing severe dental pain, you can swish your mouth out with warm saltwater to help prevent infection. To help reduce swelling, you can place an ice pack on your cheek in the area of the pain. Most dental pain is caused from tooth decay, and a simple filling or root canal often can fix the problem.
If your tooth has been knocked out, the first thing you need to do is recover it. Once you have the tooth, avoid touching the roots or tissues and only clean it off if necessary. You should then place the tooth back into your mouth in the socket or into a container of saliva or milk.
If you have a tooth that is loose or fractured, one of the most important things to keep in mind is that you should not touch it! Moving your tooth around or playing with it can cause you more pain and can damage the tooth further. It is best to leave the tooth alone completely, even though it may seem difficult.
