Toothache indicates a need to see a dentist urgently.
At Tassie Smiles we try and hold one or two emergency appointment slots. These are reserved for patients (New or Existing) that may requiring immediate care as a result of tooth ache.
IN THE CASE OF A KNOCKED OUT TOOTH
In the situation that there is dirt on the tooth, rinse the tooth gently in milk, holding it by the crown (not the root). Do not rub the root. Insert the tooth back into the socket. If the tooth cannot be replanted, place it in a container of milk or if not possible then in the patient’s mouth inside the cheek or under the tongue. Get to a dentist within 30 minutes if you can. The time taken before replanting the tooth is critical for increasing the chance of success.
If possible locate the fractured pieces, keep them moist and wrap in cling film. Phone Tassie Smiles Dental.
