Common dental emergencies include accidentally biting lips or tongue, knocking out a tooth, getting an object stuck between teeth, or suffering tooth pain. At Montz & Maher Dental Group, we offer emergency dentistry for families in the Pearland and Friendswood area.
Biting Lip or Tongue
One type of dental emergency is biting your lip or tongue. Clean the area and use a cold compress to reduce the swelling. Make an appointment with us so we can check the damaged area. If the cut is deep or large, or if the bleeding does not stop, call our emergency dentists immediately.
Tooth Knocked Out
If a tooth gets knocked out, hold it at the top and gently rinse off the debris. Put the tooth into the socket and hold it there until you reach our office. If you can’t put the tooth into the socket, then place it inside a glass of milk. Call us. The sooner you get emergency dentistry, the higher the chance your tooth can be saved.
Object Caught Between Teeth
Using teeth to pry, to chew through, or to twist can damage your enamel or get objects caught between your pearly whites. If you get an item lodged between your teeth, use floss or a dental pick to remove it. If you cannot get the item out, then call us for an emergency dentistry appointment.
Suffering Tooth Pain
Tooth pain is never a good sign. If you have a throbbing or aching tooth, feel pain or pressure when chewing, or you have prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, you need to call our Pearland or Friendswood emergency dentists as soon as possible. Toothaches indicate there’s an infection in your tooth, and we need to treat you as soon as possible in order to save your tooth.
