Dental emergencies

Dental emergencies
Dental emergency are tricky because you never know when they will occur. It's good to be ready with some quick fixes for dental crises that arise for you or someone in your family.

Of course, these fixes are no substitute for a visit to the dentist office, but they may make your dentist's job easier when he or she works to help you treat these problems.

Broken Braces

If you or your child wears braces, check the wires regularly. If a wire snaps or protrudes out and rubs against the inside of the cheek or gum, try pushing it back into a more comfortable spot using the eraser end of a pencil. If that doesn’t work, cover the protruding wire with a small piece of gauze or a small cotton ball, or orthodontic wax if you have it and see your orthodontist as soon as possible. Do not cut the protruding piece of wire because you or your child could easily swallow it or inhale it into the lungs.

Missing Filling

If a filling falls out, try plugging the hole with a small piece of dental wax or dental cement. But see your dentist as soon as possible, and bring the filling with you if you can find it.

Missing Crown

If you have the crown, you can try to slip it back onto the tooth, using dental cement, toothpaste or a denture adhesive to hold it in place until you reach the dentist.
Never try a do-it-yourself repair of a damaged tooth, filling, crown or other dental implant using super glue-this is a job for your dentist.

Remember that these solutions don’t replace the consult of a dentist, so you’ll have to make an appointment to your dentist as soon as possible.
