Handling Tooth Pain
While Waiting To Be Seen
If you had bleeding, then don’t drink anything aside from water while waiting to be seen, and don’t even drink that if you are still actively bleeding. Wait until the bleeding has stopped. When you call us, find out if is safe for you to take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, assuming these are safe for you to take naturally.
Following any type of dental trauma, your first concern needs to be the health of your mouth. If you were hit, fell, or injured in any way, you need to assess the situation.
For established patients, we will do whatever we can to try and fit you in the same day, as quickly as possible. For new patients, we will do what we can to try and help as well. If we cannot fit anyone in as quickly as would be necessary, depending on the trauma and situation, we will advise you on where to go for treatment.
Knocked Out Tooth?
If anything has been knocked out of your mouth, make sure that you collect the tooth or any broken tooth material and place it in a container with clean water or milk. If it was a tooth that was knocked out, only hold that tooth by the area where you would chew, and rinse it in clean water before putting it in a container. Call us immediately as knocked-out teeth require immediate attention. Our number is 407-658-0103.
Pain Management for Dental Emergencies
You can use a cool compress on the outside of your cheek while waiting to be seen, as that can help keep the pain and swelling down. Try not to touch the injured area, even with your tongue, as that can not only increase your pain and swelling, but also introduce bacteria to the wound. Come in as soon as you can be seen, and let us handle everything from there!
If you cannot get a hold of us, head to the nearest emergency room or go in and see your physician. That way, you do not delay in getting seen to where your dental health could be negatively impacted.
