Family practice offers Hanford, CA residents after hours emergency dental care!Posted By Dr. Nikunj Raiyani
Types of dental emergencies:
- Objects stuck in between teeth: If you have gotten something stuck between your teeth, attempt removing it with dental floss. Do this carefully to avoid cutting the gums. If this doesn’t work, do not attempt removing it with a sharp or pointed instrument such as a pin.
- Broken tooth: Gently clean the injured area with warm water. Use cold compresses on the outside of the face to reduce swelling. Contact us immediately.
- Knocked-out tooth: If needed, rinse the tooth gently, but do not scrub it. Either attempt holding the tooth into the socket or place the tooth in a cup of milk. Call immediately. If seen shortly after a tooth is lost, it is sometimes possible to re-insert it.
- Infected tooth (severe tooth-ache): Clean out debris in the mouth with warm water. Use dental floss to clean between the teeth. Use cold compresses on the outside of the mouth to reduce swelling. Do not use heat as this can make pain worse. Call our office immediately for further assistance.
