Here are a few steps to take to achieve the best
the possible result if you’re unsure how to treat a dental emergency:
Create an immediate appointment: Based on the specifics of the oral problem, you should be treated within 1-12 hours of having a dental emergency with the best outcome. Create an appointment right away with Omaha Family Dental, or stop for a walk-in session at our office.
Recover your tooth or dental work. When you have lost a tooth, do your hardest to regain it. Using warm water to gently clean it and replace it in the socket. To conserve the pulp before your appointment, you may also place it in a cup of milk. If appropriate, dental work such as a lining or crown can also be returned and taken to your appointment.
Treating bleeding, pain, and irritation- Bleeding should be treated with clean gauze or cotton balls which should subside within an hour or two. Try attending urgent care or emergency department whether you are bleeding heavily, or for more than 4 hours. Treat ibuprofen or acetaminophen for discomfort. Remember that aspirin should NOT be used so good blood clotting will prevent it.
Get expert treatment- After you have dealt with bleeding, suffering, and swelling, come to Dr. Rehan for emergency care. He’ll tell you what you need to know about your choices for treatment and help you make an educated dental health decision.
