See your Aspen Dental emergency dentist as soon as you feel discomfort or pain.
Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your face. Go to an emergency dentist right away. If the tooth is broken or chipped, bring the tooth fragment wrapped in wet gauze or a wet towel.
If your tooth becomes loose due to trauma, call your emergency dentist. For a tooth that has fallen out, try to gently insert the lost tooth back in its socket, if possible. Hold the tooth in place 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 is not possible, hold the tooth under the tongue and go to the dentist immediately.
Go to your emergency dentist or an ER immediately. Do not go to your dentist.
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 emergency dentist or an urgent care center.
